2 units on New Orleans -5.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)
Result:
LOSS

The Houston Rockets are fresh off 2 straight wins vs Boston, and the LA Lakers. This will be just the 5th time all season the Rockets enter a game off of 2 straight wins, and they are 0-4 SU in the previous 4, where they have on average lost by 12ppg. The Rockets are 17-52 on the season, so for a team, this bad to play competitively after a pair of wins is asking a lot. New Orleans is 33-36 and has work to do, and they aren't going to be a no-show with a highly winnable game in hand. The fact that Houston has won 2 straight will only ensure that the Pelicans come with effort, instead of taking this one for granted. Make the play on New Orleans as a Max Play.
