Houston at Cleveland

4 units on Game Total UNDER 187 -110 (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: LOSS

Today we get a 19-9 team visiting a 23-4 team that is perfect at home. Expect some intensity, especially on the defensive end of the court. The Rockets are holding opponents to 93.8 points per game on the season and Cleveland has held opponents to just 89.2 on the season. Over their last five games, they've even stepped that up holding opponents to just 83.6 per game. The Cavs are holding opponents nearly 10 points below their scoring average on the season, so I expect the Rockets to have trouble reaching the 90s here. Cleveland is 61-40 UNDER the past three seasons when facing a winning team. The Rockets are off a high-scoring game against New Jersey, but they are 34-18 UNDER since last season when coming off an OVER. They are also a perfect 12-0 UNDER on the road the last twelve times they have taken to the road after four straight 100+ games. You can bet that with the Rockets putting up 107+ in each of their last four that Cleveland will be bringing it defensively. This one goes UNDER.
