The Houston Rockets will be on the road to take on the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, January 12th.
The tip-off is set for 8:30 ET from AT&T Center.
San Antonio opened up as a 6.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 6. The total has gone from 232.5 to 233.
Wow, things have not gone well at all for this Rockets team so far. They have a very long season ahead of them.
This club has lost three games in a row. Of course, they will try to not make it a fourth in a row, but it will not be an easy task when they face off San Antonio.
This is a franchise that has a lot of work to do if they wish to be back in the mix in the Western Conference. As of now, they just do not have the amount of talent that is needed to win at a high level.
They are going to need multiple successful drafts in a row in before they will be relevant again. They do have a few nice pieces on their roster, but those guys have yet to really develop, which is going to take some time.
Houston got beaten by the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday by a score of 111-91. They have had three really bad losses in a row, which they need to come to an end when they play on Wednesday night.
In the loss to Philly, the offense did not play well enough to get the win. It is very seldom that a team scores just over 90 points and wins a game.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have really not been all that impressive of a team. They will occasionally show glimpses of what they can be, but it is not done on a consistent enough level.
At the moment, San Antonio has a record of 15-25, which puts them in 11th place in the Western Conference. Unless they get much better and other teams get much worse, they will stay right around that seeding for the entire season.
I think a lot of times, people just assume that the Spurs will always be a force in the West, but that is just not the case. Yes, they have been quite good for a lot of people’s lifetime, but they have not been all that relevant in some time now and I do not see that changing, frankly.
This club lost to the New York Knicks on Monday by a score of 111-96. They will look to be much better when they face off with the Rockets on Wednesday.
The game over New York was close for a bit, but the home team eventually just took over the game and the final score was not all that close. I get that the Knicks are the better team, but they should not be losing by fifteen points to them.
NBA Betting Trends:

- The Rockets are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games.
- The Spurs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.
- The Spurs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games played in January.
Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Analysis:
The Rockets have just been playing awful in their last multiple games and they have to get back on track. It will be no easy task for them in this ball game.
I want to see how the Spurs come back and play after they got handled pretty well by the Knicks. I would expect to them play a more complete basketball game.
Listen, I know San Antonio is not a great team, but they need to be able to win games like these. It would send a pretty bad message to their team if the Rockets came in their building and beat them.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Rockets ATS
It is going to be hard for the Rockets to play much worse than they have been. Even if they do not beat the Spurs, I do feel they can be at least a little better, as San Antonio is not on the same level of the teams that have been skunking them.
Based on how they have been playing, it is very hard for me to have all that much confidence in the Spurs laying the points. I would say they win the ball game, but I cannot lay the six with them.
