The Houston Rockets aren't winning or covering numbers, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 10.2 points while losing on the road by an average of 11.6 points. The Dallas Mavericks have had issues covering numbers, and they can sometimes play games close to the vest, but backing the Rockets simply isn't an option given the lack of covering despite being big numbers nightly. Give me the Mavs in a blowout victory.
