Rockets Struggling ATS in Home Games

James Harden Houston Rockets NBA

Neither the Toronto Raptors nor the Houston Rockets are at the top of their respective games entering Friday’s meeting at the Toyota Center, but the Rockets have been an ice-cold wager on their home floor recently. Both clubs have plenty at stake entering the stretch run of the regular season so Friday’s game promises to be a tightly contested game.

Shark Bites
  • Rockets are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games versus teams with a winning road record.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in Toronto’s last five games overall.
  • Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.

The Rockets have lost three-straight games and are coming off an 89-87 loss to the Utah Jazz on their home floor Wednesday. They failed to cover the spread as 1.5-point home favorites and have now gone 1-6 against the spread (3-4 straight up) in their past seven home games. As they try to fend off the Utah Jazz for that eight-seed in the Western Conference playoff picture, they will be buoyed by the fact that they defeated the Raptors 113-107 and covered as 7.5-point road pups when the two played at the Air Canada Centre back on March 6 in the last meeting. Furthermore, Houston has gone 5-0 SU in the last five meetings versus the Raps at the Toyota Center.

The Raps began their three-game road trip with a disappointing 91-79 loss at the Boston Celtics Wednesday. The loss ended Toronto’s four-game winning streak but they enter Friday’s slate having already clinched a playoff spot in the East, but still have plenty to play for as they sit two games back of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Raptors have been a solid wager versus the NBA’s Southwest Division this year and bring a 5-1 SU (4-2 ATS) mark versus the division into Friday’s contest.
