How To Bet On Rockets 76ers – Houston Takes Off in Philly

Houston Rockets @ Philadelphia 76ers – Saturday January 12, 2013 7:30PM

The Houston Rockets only made a few changes to its roster in the offseason, but those changes seem to be extremely effective. The online casino players were wondering if Jeremy Lin was actually a quality guard, or if he was just in the right place at the right time in New York. Judging by his performance so far in Houston, it looks like Lin is the real deal and could lead a team to playoff berth. When Houston also added James Harden to its lineup, fans knew that something special was about to happen in Houston this season.

The betting sites have all been reporting the unfortunate story of the Philadelphia 76ers since preseason. Andrew Bynum did not create a favorable impression of himself during his time with the Los Angeles Lakers, so fans in Philly were skeptical when Bynum signed with the 76ers. It looks like the skeptics were right as Bynum has maintained a series of mysterious injuries that have prevented him from playing a single game for the 76ers so far this season. Philadelphia gave up players to make room for Bynum and without Bynum on the court, the 76ers are unable to reach its full potential.

Why the Rockets Will Win

It seems to the betting experts that Jeremy Lin and the entire Houston Rockets team is getting better with each game. The Rockets is still having problems coordinating its defense against fast-moving teams, but that will develop as the team continues to play together. Houston continues to rack up one impressive win after another and it looks like the Rockets will be able to add the Philadelphia 76ers to that growing list of recent victims. Unless there are some drastic and quick changes in Philadelphia, there may not be much that the 76ers can do about it.

Why the 76ers Will Win

The problem that Philadelphia will face in this game is that the Rockets move the ball around quickly and Philly’s perimeter defense is weak. If the Philadelphia 76ers can pressure the Rockets to shoot and slow the game down a little, then that works in Philly’s favor. Philadelphia also needs to create consistent pressure in the paint that will help to keep Houston off balance. If there is one thing that the Rockets does not do well, it is defend strong underneath the basket.

The Bottom Line

As much as Philadelphia needs to dictate the pace of play to win this game, it will find actually doing that to be very difficult. The Rockets move the ball well and Harden gives Houston a presence under the boards that it did not have last season. The 76ers will come out and immediately try to slow the game down to a grind. But Houston will eventually dictate the pace of the game and get the win on the road.

Pick: Houston Rockets
