Trail Blazers vs Rockets prediction

The Trail Blazers have managed to cover 3 of their last 4 games, but they're so banged up and a lot of their games are so ugly, they're hard to trust. Being on the road doesn't help matters. The Rockets are the hottest team in the league with wins in 9 of their last 10 games, and they've covered 9 of those games. The Rockets are now 40-29-1 ATS on the season, which makes them the second most profitable team in the NBA. The Rockets just jumped the Thunder yesterday for that spot. The Rockets are also now only a game behind the Warriors for the 10th seed in the West. I'll lay the points with the Rockets.
