I'd like to bet the totals as well in this game where the Rockets will host the visiting Timberwolves at Toyota Center in an hour or so.
Those two teams played 4 times this season between them and the slate looks like this:
|DATE||HOME / AWAY||LINE||ATS MAR||O/U||HOME FG||AWAY FG||REB H-A|
|03/18/18||MIN 120 - HOU 129||HOU -7.0||2.0||O 222.5||45/86||43/78||41-33|
|02/23/18||HOU 120 - MIN 102||HOU -7.5||10.5||U 223.5||40/83||40/94||50-43|
|02/13/18||MIN 108 - HOU 126||HOU -3.5||14.5||O 224.0||40/84||41/83||40-37|
|01/18/18||HOU 116 - MIN 98||HOU -5.5||12.5||U 224.5||42/88||38/81||45-40|
Tonight's line is set at 215.5 with no obvious reason if to look at the past results this season and the lines set for them. The line has never been any lower than 222.5 and the lowest the teams ever scored this season between them was 214 points on January 18, 2018. That game - however - was at Toyota Center. Like today. The line opened at 218.5 and dropped 3 points down while 7 out of every 10 dollars in on over.
A classic RLM on totals.
I'll take it.
