The Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the crypto.com Arena. Let’s take a look at the odds, history, injuries and give out a pick for this game.

Odds

The Los Angeles Clippers are 8.5 point favorites with a ML price of -380. The over / under is set at 228.5 points.

Last Meeting

The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Rockets 122-106 when these clubs met in mid-November. The Clippers were 5.5 point favorites. The Clippers have won 6 straight games against the Rockets and 9 of the last 10 meetings overall. 

Injuries

Kevin Porter Jr. is questionable for the Rockets with a foot injury. For the Clippers, Luke Kennard is questionable with a calf injury and Paul George is questionable with a hamstring injury.

Trends

The Rockets are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 22-4 in Clippers last 26 home games. The under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

Pick

I don’t want to lay chalk with the Los Angeles Clippers as much as the next guy, but this is a game they should win comfortably, especially if Kennard and or George can go. The Houston Rockets look more and more like a team that’s thrown in the towel on the season, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 16.2 points. The Rockets lose on the road by an average of 10.4 points. Inconsistent results and roster changes, the Clippers should still roll here. Should being the key word.
