The under is 13-3 in Trail Blazers last 16 overall. The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Portland.
The Houston Rockets are playing with the same horrible defensive effort as they did a year ago, but the offensive production isn't there. While the sample size is still small, the Rockets don't look good at either end up to this point. The Portland Trail Blazers have shown great depth through 5 games and their offensive production has been promising. The Trail Blazers have also been a tough out at home for years. I'd need more points to consider the Rockets. Give me the Trail Blazers and the reasonable number.
