Randy’s Pick

The Dallas Mavericks are in a bit of a funk right now and their defense remains a serious issue. The Houston Rockets continue to surprise with outright victories, and they're 10-3-1 ATS on the season. The Rockets are 9-0-1 ATS in their last 10 games. While the Mavs have beaten up on the Rockets in outright wins, it's Houston that's covered 6 of the last 10 meetings. The Rockets are making bettors money. It's hard to turn down the free buckets with the Houston Rockets, given the way they keep cashing tickets. Give me the road dog.

Randy’s Pick Houston Rockets +5.5
