Houston is always an interesting team, they have a losing record on the road but betting against them in those situations, with their personnel can be tough to wrap your head around.
Utah is playing good ball and they are a strong defensive team but defending the way the Rockets plays is tough. Houston is the extreme version of the modern NBA I think.
This is the second game of a back to back with Houston being in Denver the night before. That is never a good situation…especially with Denver being really good this season.
Making this a little more challenging is the health of Chris Paul. He is back on the floor but not totally back to his old self. He is listed as probable for the Friday game which could just be a maintenance thing.
The guy who never gets a night off is James Harden. He keeps putting up 30+ point games and his scoring is all the way up to 36ppg. At times he looks like he is forcing it but that is the way they operate.
Kenneth Faried has suddenly become super reliable filling in for Clint Capla. They would love to have them both but the are not missing anything.
Beyond Harden and now Faried the production gets a little unsteadier. Eric Gordon is playing well most of the time but his shooting is way down this season and after that they are just looking to find a hot hand from game to game.
Utah is also going to be playing on a back to back but there is a big difference between hosting Atlanta and visiting Denver. They did lose, badly, in their game before that one though to Portland, a team that seems to have their number.
The last time the Jazz took on the Rockets they were successful in slowing down the game but they lost by five on the road. It was more than a month ago and they had no answer for Harden.
At home they might have a better shot or at least their other players are a little more comfortable. They can go at the Beard with Donovan Mitchell and have success but they will need more than that.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
This one looks pretty even but the jazz could be favoured if Paul doesn’t play. It won’t be by much though.
I am going to go with the home team. The back to backs for both are not at all even in terms of difficulty.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz ATS
Maybe wait till some money comes in on Houston which is the more public of the two sides though. Hopefully we get Utah -3.
