The Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz meet Friday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The Houston Rockets need a win here to rebound from a 14-game losing streak. The Houston Rockets are averaging 107.6 points on 43.7 percent shooting and allowing 112.8 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 22 points and 10.2 rebounds while John Wall is averaging 21 points and six assists. Victor Oladipo is the third double-digit scorer and Eric Gordon is grabbing 2.2 rebounds. The Houston Rockets are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Rockets are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game.

The Utah Jazz look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 116.6 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 107.8 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.7 points and 5.4 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.9 points and 2.3 assists. Mike Conley is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 13.1 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 39.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.9 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48 rebounds per game.


The Rockets are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games and 19-41 ATS in their last 60 games overall. The Jazz are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games and 22-6 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Rockets last 6 road games. The over is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 overall. The Rockets are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Utah.

The Houston Rockets are not only losing games at an unreal rate, but they're not covering numbers. I'm sure playing on the end of a back to back doesn't help matters. The Utah Jazz are 25-11 against the spread on the season and they win at home by an average of 13 points. Two teams heading in completely different directions both SU and ATS. Massive number, but I have no choice but to lay the chalk with the Jazz at home.
