Rockets & Jazz are Trending OVER

The Houston Rockets are winners of seven games in a row and own the best record in the Western Conference heading into Thursday’s prime-time tilt with the Utah Jazz.

Xbet opened the Rockets as 6-point road favorites with a total of 209.

SHARK BITES
  • The Jazz are 2-7 SU and ATS in their last nine games with one day off between games.
  • The Rockets are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games.
  • The Rockets are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five games with three days off between games.

The Rockets hammered the L.A. Lakers 118-95 on Monday and have won their last seven games by an average of 21.6 points. Veteran point guard Chris Paul’s return from an injury has directly coincided with his team’s winning streak, as the superstar has seamlessly worked his way back into the rotation. James Harden is playing MVP-caliber basketball right now by averaging 33.9 points and 8.6 assists in the seven games since Paul’s return.

The Jazz had a six-game winning streak come to an end at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 100-94 loss on Tuesday. Utah was coming off its best performance of the season – a 116-69 thumping of the Washington Wizards on Monday – and owned a 17-point second-half lead before collapsing against OKC. Utah averaged 115.5 points during its aforementioned winning streak but shot just 43 percent from the floor vs the Thunder.

OVERs are the story when the Rockets and Jazz collide. In the last four meetings between the Western Conference foes, the OVER is 4-0.
