4 units on Houston PICK (-110) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: win

4 units on Game Total UNDER 180.5 -110 (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: loss

Detroit is coming off a game vs. Dallas in which they allowed 112 points, at home. Guess what Detroit's mindset is going to be today? Yep. They are going to bring the defense and take out their embarrassment on the Rockets. Detroit is 12-8 UNDER at home. In their last five games, their games have averaged 177 points. Right now Detroit can't really score, so they are going to rely on defense to give them a shot to win here. That should result in a low-scoring game. But can they get the win? This team has scored 90 or less in 11 of their last 16 games. The only game in that span in which they managed double-digits was vs. lowly Indiana. The Rockets have thrived in expected low-scoring games like this the past two seasons as they are 25-20 ATS in games with a total in the 180s. The Rockets are 27-13 ATS in their last 40 games on the road following a loss. I like Houston and the UNDER.
