    Those guys... just when you think they might bring a consistent effort, they put up a dog.
    They are great frontrunners though. Even with big leads , against shit opponents, they keep the hammer down 3Q.
    Last 2 bets I made on the Rockets were 3Q easy winners.

    You might want to re-think the Houston pick. See below I like Clippers.

    The Clippers are 18-9 ATS in their last 27 games when they come in having won 2 out of their last 3 games this season and 17-7 ATS in their last 24 when playing on a full day rest. Houston on the other hand is just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a SU win by more than 10 points.

    Not a good matchup or situation for the rockets. Howard will play at 70%. McHale is begging his team to stop turning the ball over, and they can't stop. This Rockets team is not very good. They are one of the worst teams in the league at taking care of the ball. That's a free 2 points for the Clippers everytime. Without a solid backup PF, you don't have anyone tonight to handle Griffin either. Can't expect Jones to do that. Beverly has a rep now of being a hand checker and believe me when I tell you Chris Paul will milk that tonight. Beverly will not get away with hand checking the best pg in basketball. Refs will blow the whistle against Houston a lot tonight. Don't feel like getting into the matchups but GL with your play.

    Chris Paul is a flopper. Please. Guy acts like he gets shot by a sniper every time u lay a hand on him. The rockets first unit will do well fine against the clippers. the most important factor to the rockets winning this game will be the second unit. Beverly didn't play in the first match up and the rockets lost handily. Bevs played in the second game and rockets had a comfortable lead until the second unit gave up a double digit lead and that was game.

    I think goat milk is over thinking this too much. Houston is a good team and won almost 40 games for a reason. They won last 2 and 3/4 I believe. Rockets will cover if not win this game.

    The Clippers are 5-0 straight up this season when they're coming off an away win and so is their opp. The over is also 5-0 this season.

    He is a flopper, agreed. But he's a well respected player among refs. And that's what it's about. Beverly will not be allowed to hand check Paul. The Rockets are not gonna win this game imo. Clippers will expose them offensively and will show them why you can't turn the ball over 20 times and expect to beat the good teams.

    My Vegas Picks - what I just wrote is underthinking actually. I can write you a 2 page essay on every nba matchup. If you don't think about matchups you will never win in nba gambling long term. never. good luck.

    The Rockets are 2-6 ATS since 2008 when playing in the last game of a 5 game road trip

    The UNDER is also 17-2 Since the 2005 season when Houston's last four games were on the road and their NEXT game at Home.

    The UNDER is also 14-3 Since the 2008 season when Houston's last four games were on the road.

    I have Clips ML but I couldn't resist placing half a unit on Houston +11 from the live lines in the 1st quarter.

    Rockets 20+ turnovers and Beverly fouls out. No answer for Griffin. An off day for him and he still abuses them. Clippers are a bad matchup for the Rockets all around.

    Houston is a good team but they lack killer instinct

    Harden is a ball hog and cannot play defense

    Oh please do not act like you called the whole Beverly fouling out thing because of Chris Paul.
