The Clippers have had plenty of rest heading into tonight and that may be the deciding factor against the Rockets. As long as the Clippers can force the Rockets to take bad shots and keep them from getting open three-pointers, they should win the game.

Rockets vs. Clippers

The Clippers are finally healthy and tonight they get a chance to get back on track against the Rockets. Houston is coming off a bad loss at home to the Pacers and with the Clippers healthy and rested, they should be able to win and cover their NBA Odds at -1 ½.

The Clippers have not played since Sunday and that is going to be great for a team that's been as banged up as they have. Getting a few full days to rest and practice is going to do wonders for their chances of covering.

The Clippers are 6-4 ATS this season coming off two to three days rest. Plus, while the Rockets have been amazing ATS this season as a road underdog, they have only gone 4-3 ATS in their last seven road games against conference opponents.

Houston is also coming off losing three of their last four ATS and while that may just be a small hiccup, if the Clippers can keep this team below 15 three-pointers they are going to win. The Clippers are holding their opponents to just 35% from beyond the arc this season and with Chris Paul back and healthy, things should come together for LA tonight.
