The Houston Rockets and the New York Knicks duke it out at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

The Houston Rockets have been in dreadful form as they’ve lost 14 of their first 15 games of the season and they are currently riding a league-worst 13th straight loss after falling short against the Thunder in a 101-89 road defeat on Wednesday. Jalen Green led the team with 21 points, Jae’Sean Tate added 16 points, Eric Gordon scored 15 points with five assists while Christian Wood and Daniel Theis each scored 10 points. As a team, the Rockets shot just 35 percent from the field and 12 of 42 from the 3-point line as they stumbled out of the gates and scored just 41 points in the first half, before getting blown out in the third quarter where they trailed by as many as 17 points. Christian Wood shot just four of 16 from the field while Danuel House Jr. finished scoreless on zero of five shooting.

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been in a rut as they’ve lost three of their past four games and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting stopped in their tracks by the struggling Magic in a 104-98 home loss on Wednesday. RJ Barrett led the team with 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists, Alec Burks provided 15 points off the bench while Mitchell Robinson and Julius Randle each scored 13 points. As a team, the Knicks shot just 42 percent from the field and 16 of 49 from the 3-point line as they scrapped their way to a three-point lead late in the fourth quarter until the Magic closed the game on a 13-4 run in the final 3:21 to steal the game late. Kemba Walker scored just five points on two of seven shooting and the Knicks committed a total of 18 turnovers.

Looking at the betting trends, the Rockets are 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record, 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. The Knicks are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games, 2-6 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a losing record and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

Head to head, the over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings in New York, the Rockets are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings overall and the Rockets are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in New York. 

The Knicks haven’t been at their best lately as their starting lineup has been poor all season, but they haven’t been nearly as poor as the Rockets who are still stuck on just one win for the season. To make matters worse, Kevin Porter Jr. is also listed as questionable for the Rockets who are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games overall, so I’m sticking with the Knicks to bounce back with a much-needed win here.
