Memphis at Houston
Wednesday 04/13 08:35 PM Eastern
1 unit on Houston -3.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
Houston will return home off a successful 3-1 road trip to face the Grizzlies on Wednesday night. Memphis has cooled off of late, going just 5-5 over their last 10 games overall. They were blown out by the Mavs last time out and could be in trouble against the Rockets on Wednesday. They are just 1-3 ATS in their last four games as the underdog. Houston has won four of the last five meetings against Memphis at home. Their offense is really rolling right now, having scored 99 ppg over their last five overall. The Rockets will be playing on one day of rest here, a situation in which they are 26-19-2 ATS this season. They have the Nuggets on their heels so they'll be playing hard. Look for the Rockets to carry the momentum from their successful road trip, and cruise to another victory here. One star on Houston.
