(26-21) New Orleans Pelicans vs Houston Rockets (34-12)
(Most recent H2H result: 123-130)
- We have got ourselves a huge game tonight in New Orleans. The “Twin Towers” are matched up with two of the most dynamic guards in the league. Anthony Davis & DeMarcus Cousins will have their hands full with James Harden & Chris Paul. We are due to see plenty of buckets tonight. Both teams are on a winning streak and are in very good shape. Chris Paul & Clint Capela from the Houston Rockets got snubbed from the All-Star game. Perhaps they may want to shatter some of the words said in the media recently.
- The Rockets may be terrific in the front court, but they will need some big time plays from Clint Capela to put up with Anthony Davis and “Boogie” Cousins. These two teams went face-to-face only once this season and the Houston Center dropped 28 points, to go alongside 8 rebounds. It only took him 24 minutes to pull that off. My estimation for his time on the floor tonight is around 28-30 minutes.
- Capela has been outstanding in the month of January. He scored double figures in each and every of the 11 games he played in. Clint is averaging 16.1 points, 9.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game in 2018 and I expect this trend to continue with Harden and CP3 on the “feeding” end.
Prediction: Clint Capela over 25.5 points, assists and rebounds, odds 1.87
Stake: 5.5 units
