I don't trust the Philadelphia 76ers enough to lay big chalk with them often, but I have no choice here. The Houston Rockets are a bad team that's in full on tank mode, and that includes losing by an average of 7 points on the season and 8.2 points in their last 5 games. The Rockets also lose in the underdog role by an average of 7 points. Because I can't get behind the Rockets, I'll lay the chalk with the 76ers.
