The Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Frost Bank Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Houston Rockets vs San Antonio Spurs prediction.

Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets have been in fine form as they’ve won four of their last five games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after outlasting the Kings in a 112-104 road win on Sunday. Fred VanVleet led the team with 22 points and nine assists on five of eight shooting, Jalen Green added 19 points while Alperen Sengun chipped in with 14 piints. As a team, the Rockets shot 46 percent from the field and 12 of 29 from the 3-point line as they struggled to match the Kings early on and fell into a 13-point deficit, before they clicked into gear and turned the tide with a 32-14 third quarter to lead the rest of the way. The Rockets will face the Wizards after this game.

San Antonio Spurs

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have been in decent shape lately as they’ve split their last six games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting run over by the Warriors in a 112-102 loss last night. Victor Wembenyama led the team with 27 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks, Devin Vassell added 17 points while Keldon Johnson chipped in with 16 points off the bench. As a team, the Spurs shot just 41 percent from the field and 14 of 37 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates with 37 points in the first quarter to jump out to an early 11-point lead, but they couldn’t maintain that pace and saw their hard work go to waste in the third quarter where they got outscored by 32-18 to trail by as many as 17 points.

San Antonio Spurs Team Facts

  • The Spurs have lost each of their last nine games against Southwest Division opponents.
  • The Spurs have covered the spread in eight of their last nine games against Western Conference opponents following a loss.
  • Eight of the Spurs’ last nine home games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The Rockets have lost 10 of their 11 previous games at Frost Bank Center following a road win.
  • The Rockets have covered the spread in each of their last six games.
  • Each of the Rockets’ last four games as favorites following a road win have gone UNDER the total points line.

Houston Rockets vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

The Rockets are still a little shorthanded with Tari Eason, Cam Whitmore and Alperen Sengun all out, while the Spurs are still without Cedi Osman and Charles Bassey. The Rockets have started to turn things around with four wins in their past five outings, but they’re missing Sengun for this one and the Spurs are suddenly looking dangerous with three wins in their past six outings. You couldn’t back either side with much confidence, but the Rockets are on a bit of a roll at the moment and they should be able to get the win and cover despite missing Sengun for this one.
