It’s going to be a busy night around the NBA on Wednesday, March 16, as we have 12 games on tap, including the Western Conference tilt at Toyota Center. Make sure you don’t miss out on the best Suns vs. Rockets betting pick and odds.
Phoenix is looking to sweep the season series after defeating Houston in each of the previous three H2H encounters this year. The Suns are firm 10.5-point favorites, while the total is set at N/A points, according to BetUS Sportsbook.
Phoenix dismantled the Lakers at home
The Phoenix Suns displayed their best offensive performance of the season as they scored season-high 140 points in a massive 140-111 home victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. It was the third time the Suns beat the Lakers this year and covered a -7.5 spread with no problems. Monty Williams’ team will play the second of back-to-back games after facing the Pelicans on Tuesday and then will return home to host the Bulls.
Devin Booker (30 PTS, 10 AST, and 4 STL), Deandre Ayton (23 PTS and 16 REB), Mikal Bridges (18 PTS and 6 REB), and Cameron Payne (9 PTS, 11 AST, and 4 REB) led the Suns in this convincing victory.
Houston was non-existent in New Orleans
The Houston Rockets had a one-game road trip to New Orleans and it was a forgettable night for them as they suffered a big 130-105 loss. Houston will open its four-game homestand with this clash against the Suns, but it seems that this organization cannot wait for the regular season to end. In case you didn’t know, the Rockets have the worst record in the NBA this season.
Houston had four players in double figures, but none of them scored more than 17 points. Jalen Green (17 PTS and 4 AST), David Nwaba (15 PTS), Jae’Sean Tate (14 PTS), and Josh Christopher (13 PTS and 5 REB) were the only noteworthy rockets in this disappointing defeat.
- 4-1 ATS in the last five Wednesday games
- 4-1 ATS in the last five road games vs. a team with a losing home record
- 9-4 ATS in the last 13 road games
- 11-27 ATS in the last 38 games overall
- 6-14 ATS in the last 20 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record
Phoenix Suns vs. Houston Rockets Pick
Even though the Suns will be playing the second of a back-to-back set, they don’t have the best record in the league for no reason. They can handle these b2b situations, so I am sure the visitors will have no issues beating the sorry Rockets on Wednesday. They will have more trouble in New Orleans, but this game against the Rockets should come as a stronger training.
The Suns beat the Rockets in each of their three H2H duels this season, while they were better in seven of the previous ten encounters. Dennis Schroder will be back for Houston in this one, but it will not change a lot.
Pick: Take the Phoenix Suns -10.5 at -110
The Suns are taking care of their defense recently, and it seems that they are playing stronger D since Chris Paul suffered an injury. That defense is even stronger when Phoenix is playing without rest, but I cannot bet on Under here because the Rockets have the worst defense in the NBA.
Houston’s 30th defense is facing Phoenix’s 5th offense, but the Rockets have been atop of the league when it comes to pace. Over is 13-6-1 in the Rockets’ last 20 home games, while Over is 11-5 in the Suns’ last 16 overall.
Pick: Go Over N/A points
