Wizards vs Rockets Preview

Houston will travel to Washington on Monday for a battle versus the Wizards. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Monday’s game, check out our Wizards vs Rockets preview below.

Rockets Looking Worse Than Ever

The Houston Rockets haven’t been able to get anything going all season long, but we can definitely make the argument that they’ve looked there worse as of late. They’re going to be coming into this one on a five-game losing streak and have only won two of their last 10 games.

Houston is going to be coming into this one after a disappointing loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, as they lost by 24 points. They didn’t have much going on the offensive side of the ball with Dennis Schroder leading the way with only 17 points.

On the season, Houston has the 30th rated net rating, the 26th rated offensive rating, and the 30th rated defensive rating.

Wizards Looking To Sneak Into Playoffs

The Washington Wizards have had to deal with some adversity throughout the year due to Bradley Beal being injured and then trading away a few of their key pieces during the NBA trade deadline. What’s impressive about Washington is although their record is only 30-40, they’ve still been able to stay afloat and almost be in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

They’re five games behind the tenth place Atlanta Hawks, but if they play their best basketball down the stretch and Atlanta goes on a losing streak, Washington could potentially sneak into the playoffs. They’re going to be coming into this one after an impressive win against the Los Angeles Lakers which saw them win, 127-119.

Free NBA Picks โ€” Wizards vs Rockets

For this game, I’m going to go with the Washington Wizards to cover the spread. Houston is already one of the worst teams in the NBA and when we factor in that they’re going to be coming off a back-to-back in this one where they lost by 24 points, I can’t imagine that Houston is going to be able to get anything going.

Washington certainly isn’t my favorite team to put money on, but I do think that they’ll be able to cover the spread in this one pretty easily.
