Rating:

The Rockets have played well defensively, especially at home where they are holding opponents to 66.9 points per game. Even though the Bulls are averaging 75.7 points per game on the road, they will be held under 70 points by the Rockets because they are averaging 68 points per game in their last three games and the Rockets have given up 67.2 points per game in their last four games. The Rockets are averaging 75.4 points per game and should go over their season average against the Bulls who are giving up 76.3 points per game on the road. However, they won’t score enough points to push the score over the total. The Rockets and Bulls have played under the total in six of their last 10 games.

Prediction: Under
