Tuesday NBA Betting Action: Raptors vs Rockets

With hockey still in a holding pattern, we look to the NBA Tuesday, November 27, 2012 as the Toronto Raptors take on the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Tipoff is slated for 8 PM ET. Toronto has just three wins, one of which has come on the road, while Houston is 6-7. The Rockets are playing with heavy hearts after the death of head coach Kevin McHale’s daughter but are still stronger than the Raptors, which is why we will back Houston in this game.

Houston Rockets: Playing with very heavy hearts

Rockets players are dealing with the loss of one of their own after the daughter of head coach Kevin McHale passed away on Saturday. McHale has not been with the team since November 10 due his daughter’s illness and the Rockets are sitting at 6-7 after an impressive win over the Knicks on Friday night. A three-win Raptor team could help the Rockets reach .500 on Tuesday night in front of a home crowd.

Toronto Raptors: Struggling out of the gate to 3-11 mark

Toronto is not a very good team right now and is awful on the road, coming into this game with a 1-7 record away from home. Kyle Lowry returns to Houston to face his former team, of which he spent three-plus seasons before he was traded to Toronto over the summer. The Raptors dropped their most recent game to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday in double overtime and blew a fourth-quarter lead in that game.

It is tough to take the court just days after a tragedy hits a franchise but the Rockets will look to provide the organization with some happiness on Tuesday night when they host the Raptors. Bet365.com, one of the top online sportsbooks, has the Rockets as -6 (-110) home chalk over the visiting Raptors. We like Houston’s strong lineup in this one, so put your money down on the Rockets Tuesday night at home.
