OUR basketball boff from USA Ashfaq Hussain (@Broke_No_Joke) is on the hunt for back-to-back winners.
New York Knicks @ Houston Rockets | Tuesday 1.05 | BT Sport 1
I can see New York getting lucky in Texus tonight. After all, this is a Rockets team who look lost without Dwight Howard.
The bookies have set the Knicks’ total points at 93.5 tonight. It appears fairly low for a team that’s averaging 95-points-per-game but has scored over 99 points in four of their last five games.
The only time the Knicks failed to hit triple figures in that spell came against the 76ers, where they put up a respectable 91 – they had a solid lead in that game and were able to rotate too.
One of my favourite ballers made his comeback from injury and also his New York bow in that clash – Jose Calderon. With him pulling the string tonight and Carmelo Anthony bossing the show, I reckon they net close to three-figures yet again.
As well as Howard, the Rockets must do without Patrick Beverley through injury – that’s a big loss. So take the Nicks to score Over 93.5 team points at 10/11 with Coral.
