Dallas at Houston

Thursday 04/28 09:35 PM Eastern

3 units on Houston -1.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)  RESULT: LOSS

Dallas got smacked in the nose and find themselves as playoff road underdogs down 0-2. Not good for the confidence. And without that confidence, they're going to have a tough time of it tonight in Houston who have a lot more mojo going for them right now. The Rockets are 9-0 ATS in their last nine games. Also, they are 4-0 ATS in their last four at home. The Mavericks are 5-7 ATS in their last 12 games. Also, they are 8-7 ATS in their last 15 on the road. The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in their last four games against the Mavericks. You might be worried that this is a "must-win" for Houston. Well, wasn't game 2 a must-win for them? Didn't do much to motivate them then. Houston plays amazing defense on their home floor (hold opponents to 41.3%). Expect the Rockets to explode in the fourth quarter and run away with this to put a fork in the Mavericks. Three stars on the Rockets.
