Basketball betting action on Sunday includes a big rivalry game as the San Antonio Spurs host the Houston Rockets.
Both teams are headed for the playoffs but it is the Spurs who are considered title contenders. Gamblers who bet on basketball will be leaning to the Spurs in this game against the Rockets.
Basketball betting trends show that the teams have split their last 10 games overall but Houston is 6-4 against the basketball odds. The Spurs have won three of the last five home games against Houston but they are only 2-3 against the basketball odds in those games.
The Rockets have been just about .500 on the road this season versus the basketball betting line. Houston has a good defense but they can struggle at times offensively as basketball betting statistics tell us. The Rockets did lose Tracy McGrady to injury but they have actually been better without him. Yao Ming and Ron Artest usually lead the way for the Rockets offensively as basketball betting numbers show.
The Spurs have been just about a .500 team at home this season versus the basketball betting line. San Antonio plays excellent defense, ranking 3rd in the league as bet on basketball stats show. Offensively the Spurs are below average but they have superstar players like Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan who can impact the basketball betting odds.
There is a big under basketball betting trend in this series. Eight of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the bet on basketball total. At San Antonio, four of the last five have gone under the basketball betting total. Back in November the teams met in San Antonio and the Spurs pulled out a very low scoring game 77-75 as basketball betting stats show. That trend could continue since both teams play good defense.
