The Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz meet Friday in NBA action at the Delta Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Rockets vs Jazz prediction.

Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets have been in terrific form as they’ve won 12 of their last 13 games overall and they will be eager to build on their current 10-game win streak after sneaking past the Thunder in a 132-126 overtime road win on Wednesday. Jalen Green led the team with 37 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, Ausar Thompson added 25 points with 15 rebounds and four assists, Dillon Brooks added 20 points while Jabari Smith Jr chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Rockets shot 48 percent from the field and 15 of 43 from the 3-point line as they squandered an early 14-point lead to allow the Thunder to force overtime, but they made up for it and dominated the overtime period to keep their win streak alive.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in a real slump as they’ve lost 10 of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a seven-game slide after getting beaten by the Spurs in a 118-111 loss on Wednesday. Collin Sexton led the team with 26 points and nine assists, Lauri Markkanen added 25 points while John Collins chipped in with 18 points on five of 10 shooting. As a team, the Jazz shot 47 percent from the field and 13 of 35 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense early on and scored just 15 points in the first quarter to quickly fall behind by 19 points, before they finished with a flurry in the fourth quarter to keep the final scores somewhat respectable.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have lost each of their last 11 games against teams that held a winning record.
  • The underdogs have covered the spread in nine of the last 10 games between the Rockets and Jazz at Delta Center.
  • Five of the Jazz’s last six games as home underdogs following a home loss have gone OVER the total points line.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The Rockets have won each of their last 10 games.
  • The Rockets have covered the spread in each of their last seven games.
  • Each of the Rockets’ last five games at Delta Center following a road win have gone UNDER the total points line.

Rockets vs Jazz prediction

The Rockets are still missing Cam Whitmore and Alperen Sengun, while the Jazz have ruled out Jordan Clarkson, and they have listed Lauri Markkanen as questionable for this one. This is a classic case of two teams headed in opposite directions, as the Rockets are enjoying their best run of the season, while the Jazz have won just one of their last 11 games overall. The line is short enough for this one for me to automatically take the Rockets to get the win and cover against this slumping Jazz outfit who can’t beat anyone these days.
