Rockets -5 vs Grizzlies

1.5 unit

The Rockets have been covering a lot of games and playing well to start the season and now are off 3 close losses in a row – the the Clippers, the Warriors and the Lakers. They had a chance to win both games in LA and play the Grizzlies home who have a lot of injuries to begin with and now Marcus Smart and Luke Kennard are out. Not many scoring options for the Grizzlies outside of Bane and Jaren Jackson and the Rockets have been one of the top teams defensively. Dillon Brooks vs his old team who wouldn’t re-sign him. If the Rockets didn’t just play 3 games in California this would be a bigger bet but they did have the day off yesterday before this game and off a few losses they should look forward to this game.
