Houston Rockets vs Detroit Pistons Predictions 12/18/2021

 

The Rockets have a 9-20 record so far this season and sitting in the third to last place of the West. They are 15-13-1 against the spread and 14-15 in over/under.

 

They are coming off a home defeat against the New York Knicks with a 103-116 score, not beating the odds, even though they shot better than their opponents from the field (50% to 47%). Daniel Theis led the team both in scoring with 22 points and in rebounding with 10, while Ja’Sean Tate added 20 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists. 

 

Christian Wood leads the team both in scoring with 16.5 ppg and in rebounding with 11.1 per game. Eric Gordon follows with 14.7 ppg and 3.1 assists per game. 

 

The Rockets average 106.1 ppg offensively and have the third-worse defense in the league, allowing 113.1 ppg. They have a 44.7% field goal percentage and a 34% 3-point percentage.

 

In their previous meeting earlier this season, the Pistons won on the road with a 104-112 score. They are 8-1 against the spread in their previous nine meetings. Under is 3-1 in their previous four meetings.

 

The Pistons have a 2-11 home record this season, while the Rockets are 2-13 on the road. The Rockets are playing without three of their starters, so I’m going to pick the Pistons to beat the odds at home today.
