The season hasn’t started the way Rockets backers had envisioned as the team is 4-6 SU and 3-7 ATS through their first 10 games. They’ll get a chance to reverse their course against a team they’ve fared well against recently, the Boston Celtics. Houston is 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs the Celts, which includes four straight wins.
The Rockets have been especially disappointing at home this season, registering four home losses so far. Having Dwight Howard in and out of the lineup certainly hasn’t helped as the big man has already sat out four games. He’s been effective on the glass when he’s on the court, grabbing an average of 12.7 rebounds in the six games he’s played.
As for the Celtics, they’re 5-4 SU and ATS and are coming off a road win in Oklahoma City yesterday vs the Thunder. In their last nine tries, the Celtics have gone 8-1 SU in the second game of back-to-backs.
The Celtics road OVER/UNDER record combined with the Rockets home OVER/UNDER record is 2-7.
