2 units on Houston +5.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
Home sweet home? Not so quickly. Phoenix is 30-53 ATS over the last three seasons as a home favorite. They are also just 1-7 ATS in all home games this season since the all-star break. This is a good matchup for Houston. Phoenix really struggles against good three-point shooting teams and also against good defensive teams, both areas where the Rockets excel. Houston is holding opponents under 91 points per game over their last five. The Rockets are also looking to revenge a home loss to Phoenix earlier this season and in that situation, they are 8-2 against the spread. Two stars on Houston plus the points.
