The Houston Rockets are averaging 108.3 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 116.7 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 17.6 points and 10.1 rebounds, while Jalen Green is averaging 15 points and 3.2 rebounds. Eric Gordon is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Porter Jr. is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Houston Rockets are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 71.5 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Rockets are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game.

Donovan Mitchell is averaging 25.5 points and 5.2 assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 17.7 points and 4.1 rebounds.

The Rockets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Jazz are 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 21-7 in Rockets last 28 overall. The over is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 home games. The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Utah.
I'm not running to the window to back the Houston Rockets, as they're not a good team, and they got rocked on a nightly basis. However, the Jazz are coming off a rough week themselves and are losing their last five games by an average of five points while not playing a lick of defense. The Jazz are also 8-13-1 against the spread at home this season, and are 5-11-1 against the spread as a double-digit underdog. This is a lot of points, and the Jazz aren't getting the job done in these roles. It's Rockets or pass for me.
