Rockets set for liftoff vs Raptors

The Toronto Raptors will bounce into the Toyota Center to face the Houston Rockets, who are starting to make their claim as a serious challenger to the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets are 11-3 SU this season and are on a tear without All-NBA guard Chris Paul. The Rockets have beaten the Raps in nine of the last 10 games in Houston and opened as 6.5-point favorites.

SHARK BITES
  • Toronto is 4-2 ATS in its last six games on the road.
  • James Harden is averaging 30.2 points per game, second in the NBA.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Raptors’ last four games against the Rockets.

The Raptors are coming off a tough loss to the Celtics on Sunday and are 1-5 ATS in their last six games. Bringing the band back together was a polarizing move by GM Masai Ujiri and Toronto is showing they still can’t measure up to the superior competition in the NBA. Losses to Golden State and San Antonio are nothing to be ashamed about but when you lose to a Celtics team without Kyrie Irving, it shows the recent problems plaguing the Raps are still present. Bettors looking for an edge should know the Raps are 6-0 SU in their last six games after losing as a favorite.

Houston, on the other hand, is thriving without Chris Paul and hasn’t missed a beat. The Rockets are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games and are eyeing their seventh win in a row. Their “three-pointers or layups only” strategy is still in full force for the Rockets, who lead the league with just under 45 three-point attempts per game and rank third in the NBA in scoring (111.07 points per game). When you factor in that the Raps will be without their best perimeter defender in Norman Powell, Houston’s James Harden could have a field day in this matchup.

The total opened at 219.5 and for bettors who like the OVER, this one is shaping up to be a score-fest. Two of the top 10 players in scoring are on the court in Harden and DeMar DeRozan and as I mentioned, Houston likes to bomb it from deep.
