Houston hosts Milwaukee on Saturday night at the Toyota Center. The Bucks have lost two straight games, ending a three-game winning streak beforehand. The Rockets have just lost four games and are currently on a 12-game winning streak — their latest win could have been the best yet.

Bucks couldn’t get bailed out by Antetokounmpo again

Milwaukee lost two straight games when giving up 115 points. The latest was against Chicago in a 115-109 decision. The Bulls took over in the last quarter of the game, which ultimately decided things. The Bucks hit just 27.3 percent from downtown and 69 percent of their free throws (20-of-29). They were outrebounded 50-43, but it ultimately didn’t matter.

Two different players led the team with a total of 29 points. One of them was naturally Giannis Antetokounmpo. Averaging 29.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game, he had 29 points exactly and 16 boards against Chicago. He’s had a few games below his average output in the last five games. Shooting guard Tony Snell (8.6 ppg) is questionable for the upcoming game with a knee injury. He’s missed the last three games and his latest action came against Detroit on December 6th where he had three points in 20 minutes.

Rockets pounce on Spurs in shocking blowout

Houston has been on fire lately, and they certainly didn’t cool down in a demolition again San Antonio on Friday night. They took down the traditional Western Conference foe, 124-109. The Rockets had a 31-16 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. While you’d expect the Spurs to come back and contend, they never did. The Rockets ended up hitting 80 percent of their free throws (20-for-25).

Two of Houston’s starters finished with 28 points. James Harden went 6-for-18. While he missed 9-of-11 3-pointers, he went 14-for-16 from the charity stripe and registered seven boards and six assists to five turnovers. Overall, Chris Paul was the man of the night with the same amount of points on 10-of-18 shooting, making 5-of-9 from downtown, and all three free throw attempts. He also had eight assists to three turnovers.

Trends

Bucks are:

  • 1-4-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall
  • 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss

Rockets are:

  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against teams with a winning SU record
  • 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 when opponent scores 100 points or more in prior contest

It’s hard to not like Houston in any of these games right now. Until they start slowing down, expect the Rockets to prevail in every facet of the game.

Since Houston can score a ton, along with  Giannis Antetokounmpo for the Bucks, the best option is to go for the over in this matchup.

  • Over is 9-1-1 in Bucks last 11 overall
  • Over is 4-1 in Rockets last 5 overall

Pick: Over
