Phoenix -12 over Houston
9:00 PM EST. It’s not often we’ll spot points in this range, but when we do, it’s because we trust there is value to be had. With regards to this selection, the host Suns actually have little to do with our decision to step in. However, they are a great team that has plenty of firepower to back us up on this position.
The Rockets are on the rise and the market is taking notice. Houston has a great 4-2 record against the spread so far this season. The Rockets won outright against the Jazz last Monday night and then followed that game up with a ticket cashing effort in Utah last Wednesday. The Rockets were an 8½ point pooch in Utah in that game. When considering that price in Salt Lake City, we trust there is value to be had here, as on no planet are the Jazz just two buckets away from being on the level of the Suns. The Suns also just happen to catch the Rockets on their third road game in four nights. Houston is long, talented and quick but man they make a lot of bad decsions, especially when they're down a bunch.
