The Houston Rockets and LA Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Rockets vs Clippers prediction.

Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets are starting to turn things around as they’ve won two of their last three games and they will be eager to keep it going after sneaking past the Trail Blazers in a 116-17 road win on Friday. Jalen Green led the team with 26 points and nine rebounds, Jock Landale added 20 points on eight of 13 shooting while Aaron Holiday chipped in with 18 points off the bench. As a team, the Rockets shot 47 percent from the field and 11 of 39 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with a 31-16 second quarter to take a 20-point lead, before they held off a late charge from the Trail Blazers to earn the much-needed victory.

Los Angeles Clippers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in pretty good shape as they’ve won seven of their last 10 games overall, but they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after falling short to the Jazz in a 110-109 loss on Friday. Russell Westbrook led the team with 20 points and six assists off the bench, Amir Coffey added 16 points off the bench while Daniel Theis chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Clippers shot 44 percent from the field and 10 of 39 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 38 points in the first quarter to jump out to an early 13-point lead, but they never put the Jazz away, and it cost them as they managed just six points in the final 4:39 to allow the Jazz to steal the game at the end.

Los Angeles Clippers Team Facts

  • The Clippers have won each of their last nine games against the Rockets.
  • The Clippers have covered the spread in seven of their last eight home games against Western Conference opponents after losing as favorites.
  • Each of the Clippers’ last seven home games against Southwest Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The Rockets have lost each of their last 11 games at Arena.
  • The Rockets have covered the spread in each of their last six games against Pacific Division opponents following a win.
  • Each of the Rockets’ last eight games have gone OVER the total points line.

Rockets vs Clippers prediction

The Rockets are still missing Jae’Sean Tate and Fred VanVleet, while the Clippers have ruled out Kawhi Leonard, and they have James Harden as questionable. The Rockets are starting to play some good basketball again, but they were far from convincing in their win over the slumping Trail Blazers, so I am slightly more comfortable taking the Clippers as the home underdogs in this spot.
