The Rockets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Monday games. The Hornets are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 37-18-1 in Rockets last 56 overall. The over is 4-1 in Hornets last 5 overall. The Rockets are 4-1-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Houston Rockets have been a really good team since the trade of James Harden, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 6.8 points while allowing 43.5 percent shooting from the field. The Charlotte Hornets are a tough team to figure out due to their inconsistency and I'm not sure how much I trust them on the end of a back to back. I'll lay the bucket with the Rockets.
