It will be Game 2 of the Western conference semifinals as the Houston Rockets host the Utah Jazz.

The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the home side Houston Rockets favored by -11 points with the over under line set at 205 ½ points.

Houston went up 1-0 in this best of seven series with their 110-96 victory at home to the Jazz. Rockets were able to cover as an -11 ½ point favorite. The Rockets and Jazz have now met a total of five times. Each time the Rockets won and covered the spread and their margin of victory was by 11 points or greater. Utah has had issues defending this Rockets team this season. Specifically, the Rockets guards in Chris Paul and James Harden. James Harden led Houston in the opener with 41 points and seven assists as he made 12 of 26 shots with 7 of 12 going in from three point range. Chris Paul had 14 points and six assists as he made 7 of 14 shots. Jazz must find a way to contain these two guards of the Rockets. Houston tried 32 three pointers in the opener making 17 shots for 53.1% shooting.

Utah suffered a blow in this series as guard Ricky Rubio has been sidelined for ten days as he recuperates from a hamstring injury. Utah did shoot 50% in the opener but turned the ball over 18 times. Rookie Donovan Mitchell led the starters with 21 points with five assists on 9 of 22 shots. He was only 1 of 7 from three. What makes this series tough for the Jazz as they have to attempt a lot of three point shots in this series to keep up with the Rockets velocity and makes in this series. That means Rudy Gobert may not be as effective in this series.
