Dallas vs. Houston

The action has been split according to SBR Odds in the Mavericks vs. Rockets night-time fixture - this is evidenced well by the line moving a half-point in the Mavericks' favor despite a half percent more total wagers on the Rockets, suggesting a hair more in volume or sharp action has been in favor of visiting Dallas.
