Two squads sitting on opposite sides of the Western conference table are clashing today, when the third Houston Rockets (42-26), who saw a lengthy winning streak end and are looking to bounce back, are hosting the last Phoenix Suns (16-53), who are coming off a defeat in their latest matchup as well.

Houston Rockets have a 42-26 record (31-35-2 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Thunder in the third place of the West. In their last game they saw a nine-game winning streak getting snapped by losing at home against the Warriors with a 104-106 score, not beating the odds.

Phoenix Suns have a 16-53 record (31-38 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the West. They have lost two of their last three matches and in their last game they won at home against the Jazz with a 97-114 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Devin Booker with 25.1 ppg, adding 4.1 boards and a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by TJ Warren with 18 ppg and 4 boards per game he is out with an injury.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Rockets won on the road with a 110-118 score. Rockets have a 24-10 home record, while the Suns are 6-29 on the road. Rockets are better both offensively, scoring 112.9 ppg to Suns’ 106.8 and defensively, allowing 110.1 ppg to Suns’ 115.9. Suns have a better field goal percentage (45.7% to 44.7%), while Rockets have a better 3-point percentage (34.8% to 33%). Rockets are better both in boards grabbed (41.6 to 40.2) and in turnovers committed (13 to 15.1), while Suns are better in dimes made (23.9 to 20.9). Rockets are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -13 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
