Basketball betting schedule information tells us that it is the last game of a three-game road trip for the Rockets and the second half of a back-to-back as they played at Detroit last night. Let’s take a look at the NBA betting numbers for the Rockets and Knicks.
NBA betting trends favor Houston in this game as the Rockets have won 9 of the last 10 games against the Knicks straight up. Houston is also 6-4 against the NBA odds in those games. Earlier this month in Houston the Rockets routed the Knicks by a score of 96-76 as NBA betting results indicate. At New York, the Rockets have won the last five games against the Knicks as NBA betting stats show. They are 4-1 against the NBA odds in those games.
Houston has been staying in the mix in the Western Conference despite a lot of injuries. Yao Ming is now leading the team in scoring as NBA betting numbers show and he was voted into the All-Star game as the starting center. The Rockets have been without Tracy McGrady and Ron Artest at times this season but Yao has picked up the slack.
New York has remained competitive this NBA betting season despite all of their trades. Al Harrington is leading the team in scoring as basketball betting stats show while David Lee, Nate Robinson and Chris Duhon have shown they can score as well.
Gamblers looking at the NBA betting total will notice that six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under. At New York, three of the last four games have gone under the basketball betting total. It should be noted that the Rockets have been playing a lot more overs on the road this season in NBA betting than at home, nearly twice as many as stats show. The Knicks have been about a .500 team in terms of NBA betting totals at home this season.
