Something Has to Give in Rockets-Trail Blazers Matchup

Two of the hottest teams in the NBA are set to do battle on Tuesday when the Houston Rockets hit the road to take on the Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center. How money have the Blazers been as a spread bet lately? Portland is a ridiculous 10-0 ATS in its past 10 games.

MyBookie opened the Rockets as 4.5-point road favorites with a total of 216.

SHARK BITES
  • The Rockets are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games on the road.
  • The Rockets are 5-1 SU in their last six games against the Trail Blazers.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Trail Blazers’ last seven games at home (Avg. combined score: 209.29).

The Rockets, who’ve won five straight and 26 of their past 28, haven’t taken their foot off the gas pedal ahead of the playoffs. Houston defeated New Orleans and Minnesota to begin a three-game road trip, and the club is only two wins shy of tying the franchise mark set by the Hakeem Olajuwon-led 1993-94 team that won the first of back-to-back titles. All-star guard James Harden dropped 48 in a triumph over Portland earlier this season and has scored 30 or more in 10 of his last 12 vs the Blazers.

Portland is riding a 13-game winning streak that matches the second-best winning streak in franchise history after Sunday’s 122-109 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. The Blazers are three wins away from tying the club record set in 1990-91 but face their toughest task against the Rockets. Star point guard Damian Lillard is averaging 30.5 points in his last four games against Houston and has matched his career best of 15 consecutive 20-point outings.

OVER bettors love seeing these teams get together. In the last seven meetings between the Trail Blazers and Rockets, the OVER is 6-1.
