Houston Rockets vs Phoenix Suns Betting Prediction

Houston has dropped four of its past six games, including four of its last five on the road. They don't have a great offensive game, and they do even worse on the road, where they average less than 110 points a contest and make less than 45% of their shots.

They have been exceedingly sloppy with the ball, turning it over more than 18 times a game on the road, and they don't rebound the ball as efficiently as Phoenix. Phoenix is a very active defensive team that frequently forces turnovers and holds opponents to under 110 points per game at home. Phoenix will get the win and cover the spread tonight.

Pick: Phoenix -11.5 (-115)
