Brooklyn vs. Houston,
01/26/2013 20:00 EDT,
Score: 106 - 119
Point Spread: -2½/-110 Houston
The Houston Rockets are clearly undervalued right now due to losing eight of their last 10 games overall. They should be a much heavier favorite tonight over the Brooklyn Nets, who come in overvalued due to winning 10 of their last 12 games overall.
Brooklyn has been taking advantage of a very easy schedule during its recent run, but it finally met its match last night in an ugly 77-101 loss at Memphis. Houston had played a very tough schedule before getting back on track of late against some softer competition. It won 100-82 at New Orleans last night, which was a win it needed to regain its confidence.
Houston is a perfect 11-0 SU & 8-3 ATS in its last 11 meetings with Brooklyn. It has won all 11 of those meetings by 5 points or more, which dates back to 2006. That makes for a perfect 11-0 system backing to Rockets since 2006 pertaining to tonight's spread of -2.5.
The Rockets are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a S.U. win. Houston is 7-1 ATS in its last 8 games following a SU win of more than 10 points. The Nets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. Brooklyn is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 games following a S.U. loss. Take the Rockets Saturday.
