Hawks at Rockets (Nov. 25): Prediction, point spread, odds, best bet




 

The Atlanta Hawks (11-7) are currently the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, while the young and rebuilding Houston Rockets (3-14) are in last place out West. But the visitors have alternated wins and losses in each of their past eight games, and the hosts would love to keep that trend going in Friday's matchup at Toyota Center.

If you're looking to do some last-minute betting research for the Rockets-Hawks game, you're in luck! We'll give you the latest point spread, money line odds and over/under number, as well as the information you'll need to make the smartest bet at BetMGM.

The game starts at 7:00 p.m. Central and can be seen via AT&T SportsNet Southwest (in Houston markets) or on NBA League Pass.

The game may feature the return of young center Bruno Fernando to the Houston rotation after missing a month with a knee injury, though it remains to be seen whether Fernando will reclaim his prior spot in the starting lineup in place of Alperen Sengun. On Friday, it could be more likely due simply to the fact that Sengun is doubtful to play due to what the Rockets listed as right groin soreness.

Houston, which hosts Oklahoma City on Saturday, will be on night one of a back-to-back. That could make them more likely to be conservative with any injuries, such as Sengun's groin.

Expected Lineups

Advice and prediction

The Rockets will enter Friday's game coming off four straight days of rest, and it took historic games from both Steph Curry and Klay Thompson on Sunday to prevent the Rockets from springing an upset on the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors.

This feels like a potential spot for an upset - or at a bare minimum, at least a competitive game and a chance to cover the spread.

Prediction: Hawks 118, Rockets 113
