Houston is 3rd in the West conference with a points average of 0.677 thanks to 44 wins and 21 losses overall. They are well above average offensively with 115.1 points per game. Defensively, they are giving up 108.4 per contest.
The Bulls are 8th in the Eastern Conference with an overall record of 31 wins and 33 losses. They are averaging 102.3 points per game and surrendering 103.1.
Houston's form is not at top given that they have lost 3 of the last 5 games. Things are not getting better for Chicago though, which has lost 4 out of their last 5.
Head to head, in the last 6 matches Houston is 1-5 against the spread, while Chicago is 5-2 in the last seven.
It is clear that both teams are not in a good run of form, but I think in the end the Rockets have the necessary quality and power to outrun the Bulls and come out of this match as the winners.
