4-Unit Play. #707. Take Under 186.5 New Orleans vs. Houston (Wednesday @ 8:05pm est).
New Orleans is a young team that is finding itself on the defensive side of the ball. This has always been a defensive minded team even when Chris Paul was there and now they look to continue that as they come off scoring 107 points against another young team in Charlotte. Prior to that game going over at home, New Orleans had played 3 straight unders including under in its only road game of the year. As it plays a more seasoned team in Houston today who also focuses on the defensive end as they are top 16 in the league in defense whereas New Orleans is top 5 in the league in defense, I look for this game to likely be a defensive battle. Houston uncharacteristically gave over a 100 points to the Heat at home so they will look to correct that today. In fact, they gave up 113. This is the same team that gave up 93 to Denver at home and 95 to Portland - in overtime. Look for this game to likely dip under as both teams do well on the defensive end with motivation and note that the Under is 5-0 for the Rockets following a straight up loss and the Under is 7-3 for the Hornets following a straight up win
