Houston Rockets at Dallas Mavericks Preview & Picks

Houston are tipped to cover as a betting underdog on the road.

The Rockets have been of the NBA's most reliable spread picks so far this season, and they will be full of confidence after knocking off Denver.

  • Houston Rockets are 10-1-0 ATS in their last 11 games
  • Dallas Mavericks are 2-4-0 ATS in their last 6 games
  • The Under has cashed in 7 of Houston's last 10 games
  • The Under has hit in each of Dallas' last 3 games

Head To Head

  • Houston Rockets lead the al-time series 109-100
  • Dallas Mavericks won 111-106 when the two teams last met on January 2

Houston Rockets Form

Houston head back out on the road looking to build on a couple of home wins that have taken them to 8-6.

The Rockets hit a hot streak at the start of November as a win against Charlotte sparked six-game win streak that included a 107-104 upset of defending champions Denver.

All of those wins came at home though, and when they went back out on the road their form nose-dived.

Houston were beaten 106-100 by the LA Clippers and 105-104 at the Los Angeles Lakers, before heading to the Bay Area for a 121-116 defeat to Golden State.

The Rockets rebounded when they returned though, as they followed up a 111-91 win over Memphis with another upset of Denver, 105-86.

Dallas Mavericks Form

Dallas come into this game on a rough run of form, having lost four of the last six to drop to 10-6.

The Mavericks made a strong start to the season as they won eight of their first 10 games of the campaign.

Their form has cooled over the past couple of weeks though, with their 2-4 run starting with a 131-110 defeat at New Orleans.

Dallas responded with a 130-117 win in Washington, only to then lose 132-125 in Milwaukee and 129-113 at home to Sacramento.

The Mavericks avoided a third straight defeat as they won 104-101 at the Los Angeles Lakers, but they failed to back that up as they then lost 107-88 to the LA Clippers.


Dallas are the better team on paper, but Houston have been stacking up covers and upset wins, so give us the Rockets and the points.
