Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs: Start Time, Odds, Free Pick


The Houston Rockets will look to stay hot this evening when they battle division rival and Southwest leader San Antonio at the AT&T Center. Start time in tonight’s meeting between the Rockets and Spurs is set for 8:30pm ET. The latest Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Odds are favoring the Spurs at -8 against the spread; the game total is set at 213.5 points. Houston is drawing +310 odds ($100 wins $310) as a money line selection.

The Rockets record is not overwhelming, the team enters tonight’s game at 16-12, but their play of late has been exceptional. Houston, which sits third in the Southwest Division and five games out of first place, recorded its fifth straight win on Wednesday night, beating the Timberwolves 87-84 in Minnesota.

James Harden, who is fourth in the NBA in scoring with a 25.8 point per game average, registered 30 points on 11-of-22 shooting in the win. The Rockets defense held the T-Wolves to 38.1 percent shooting for the game and they limited Kevin Love to just seven points.

Prior to their win over Minnesota, the Rockets knocked off the Knicks, Sixers, Grizzlies, and Bulls.

San Antonio, which closes out a four game home stand this evening, has a win streak of its own to extend this evening as it notched a third straight win on Wednesday night with a 100-80 victory over Toronto at the AT&T Center. The Spurs downed the Hornets and Mavericks at home before facing the Raptors

The Spurs have won seven in a row and eight of their last 10 against the Rockets at the AT&T Center. Houston’s last road win against San Antonio came in January of 2010. Those numbers do not bode well for the Rockets this evening, nor does the Spurs 11-2 mark at the AT&T Center this season.

Free Pick: Take San Antonio -8. The Rockets are 1-9 straight up and 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games as a road dog against a Southwest opponent.

Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs Odds:

Houston Rockets +8 (-110), Over 213.5 (-110), +310 (Moneyline)

San Antonio Spurs -8 (-110), Under 213.5 (-110), -380 (Moneyline)
