Can Knicks cure road woes vs ruthless Rockets?

The New York Knicks will be on the road tonight for a showdown with the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center. The Knickerbockers have been a horrendous road team early in the season with a record of 1-5 SU and ATS in six games. Their challenge in H-Town will put them to the test as the Rockets are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games and opened as 13-point favorites.

SHARK BITES
  • New York is 1-15 SU in its last 16 games when playing Houston.
  • New York is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 games.
  • Houston is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games.

The embattled Knicks are on the rise but still haven’t gotten it together. Whether it’s hiring Phil Jackson to fall asleep on the sidelines or badmouthing their star player in the media, the Knicks just can’t seem to stay out of their own way. And it’s shown in their road losses this season. New York is coming off a loss to forget in Atlanta yesterday and every loss on the road has been by double-digit points. Bettors should think twice about asking the Knicks to cover tonight.

Houston has been on a tear with point guard Chris Paul returning to the fold, winning three straight games by 20 points or more. They hold a slight edge on Golden State for top spot in the Western Conference and are taking a page out of the Warriors’ playbook by averaging a ludicrous 44 attempts from three-point range per game. James Harden has taken the top spot back in the scoring race and dropped 31 points in a win versus the Knicks at the start of the month at MSG.

The total opened at 218.5 and bettors should always consider an OVER when the Rockets are involved. The OVER has hit in four of Houston’s last six games and five of the last six games in this matchup. Bombs away!
