NBA Picks January 26th

Houston Rockets vs. Charlotte Hornets

Tipoff – 7:00 pm EST
Spread: Rockets -5.5
Total: 225

After an impressive – and surprising – start to the season, the Houston Rockets are back to struggling. They’ve lost two straight games – including one at home against Portland – and have only managed one win over their last six. Plus, they are abysmal on the road this season – their 4-15 road record is one of the worst in the NBA. I think they are ripe for the picking here, so the Charlotte Hornets +5.5 is the play. No bet on the total.

Best Bet: Rockets +5.5 (-110)



Phoenix Suns vs. Indiana Pacers

Tipoff – 7:00 pm EST
Spread: Suns -5.0
Total: 242.0

The red-hot Phoenix Suns take their show on the road on Friday, facing the undermanned Indiana Pacers. The home team will be without their injured star, Tyrese Haliburton, in this game once again. They are also winless since acquiring Pascal Siakam (unless they beat the Sixers on Thursday). No Haliburton and Indiana playing back-to-back, against a team that just beat them by seven points, means I think the Suns make it eight straight wins plus cover the line for us. No play on the total.

Best Bet: Suns -5.0 (-110)
