Betting On Rockets Basketball


Mavs and Rockets Perimeter D Lacking

The Dallas Mavericks and the Houston Rockets meet up on Sunday when they battle at Toyota Center. Both teams have struggled on perimeter defense so far this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Houston Rockets listed as 5-point favorites versus the Mavericks. The game’s total is sitting at 215.

Last time out for the Houston Rockets, they were a 106-98 winner as they battled the Dallas Mavericks on the road. The Rockets covered in the match as a -2-point favorite, while 204 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors. In their 106-98 victory over the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center in Dallas, the Rockets (1-1) avoided the repeated gouging of their defense that marred their season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers two nights earlier.

In their last action, Dallas was a 106-98 loser at home against the Rockets. They failed to cover the +2-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (204) was profitable news for UNDER bettors. The Indiana Pacers torched the Mavericks behind the arc in the opener for both teams earlier this week, hitting on 10 of 19 3-point shots. The Rockets followed suit with 15-of-32 shooting from behind the arc.
