Portland is 25-24 SU and 22-25-2 ATS; it's coming off a 105-99 loss at Dallas as a 5.5 point dog on the 6th.
The Rockets though have struggled vs. the Blazers so far this year, losing 95-85 at home on November 3rd, and 119-117 in Portland on November 16th.
LaMarcus Aldridge has been key to his team's success vs. Houston, averaging 28.0 points over those two contests, while Damian Lillard has averaged 23.5.
Nicolas Batum would explode for 35 in the second victory.
Note that Portland is 13-8 ATS this year when playing against a team with a winning record.
Houston is 27-24 SU and 27-23-1 ATS; it's coming off a 114-108 loss at Miami as a 7.5 point dog on the 6th.
James Harden would score 36 points, grab 12 boards and dish out seven assists, but it simply wasn't enough. And I believe this team suffers another letdown tonight.
Note that Houston is just 7-13 ATS this year after allowing 105 points or more.
I believe this matchup continues to be a difficult one for the home side, and while the outright win is certainly not out of the question, I'll recommend grabbing the points in this situation!
