Why the Rockets can cover
Houston is coming off its best performance of the season, recording its most points, field goals, 3-pointers and assists in a game this year. The Rockets had their top individual scoring game as well, with Jalen Green pouring in 34 points in the win over Orlando. Veteran Eric Gordon scored a season-best 19 points, knocking down 5 of 8 from 3-point range.
Toronto is coming off a loss to Chicago and is playing without leading scorer Pascal Siakam due to a groin injury. The Raptors have now lost two of their last three games and are going to be without Siakam indefinitely. Houston has covered the spread in five of the last seven meetings between these teams, including a 117-115 loss as an 11.5-point underdog in the most recent matchup.
Why the Raptors can cover
Toronto has lost two of its last three games, but those setbacks came against high-level teams in Dallas and Chicago. The Raptors have taken care of business against bad teams this season, and there is no reason why that should change on Wednesday, even with Siakam sidelined. Veteran guard Fred VanVleet led Toronto with 30 points on Sunday and 27 points on Monday after missing three games with a stiff back.
OG Anunoby had a combined 35 points in those two games, while Gary Trent Jr. added 19 points on Monday. Houston only has two wins in its last 18 games, and it has only covered the spread twice in its last six contests. Toronto has covered in nine of its last 11 games against Western Conference opponents and has covered in four of its last five games this season.
