Point Spread Pick
Surprisingly the Rockets just haven’t been that strong at home with a barely over .500 mark of 7-6 against the West. However, they have beaten the Trail Blazers in 3 of the last 4 meetings overall and may catch a Portland team who is a little full of themselves after road wins over the Spurs and Mavericks. Take the Houston Rockets -2.5 at 5Dimes and Lay -105 instead of -110 on this game!
