HOUSTON +10 -102 over Philadelphia

8:00 PM EST. The 76ers have won six in a row, including four straight trips to the pay window, capped off by a 119-110 decision at home against San Antonio on Friday night. The Sixers hosted these Rockets just a week ago in Philadelphia and won that game by 20 points (133-113). Philly was a 13-point favorite that night. In back-to-back wins and covers over the Magic and Spurs, the 76ers cashed by the thinnest of margins (½-point), as 8½ point chalk in both. Philly has been zig-zagging across the country playing at home January 3, at Orlando January 5, home January 7 and now back on the road down to Houston before returning home for games against the Hornets and Celtics. If there was a night to take a breath, this would be it. Even if the Sixers were in a favorable situation, this would look like an inflated pile of points.

The Rockets are still regarded as dregs, but if you watch this year’s edition, these young guys have a fire in their belly. Gone are “me first” franchise killers James Harden and Russell Westbrook and it is a solid mix of stable veterans and young talented players. The Rockets win about once a month so we understand that the appetite for them against an Eastern power might not be very big. However, they are well equipped to keep this one inside the distance. An outright win is not out of the question if the 76ers get caught looking ahead or taking a night off. Great spot and a great value bet.
