Christian Wood Over 20.5 Points (-106)

Kevin Porter Jr. Over 5.5 Assists (+106)

Parlay odds: +827

Houston Rockets MoneyLine (+198)

The Rockets are coming off of a 124-91 win over the OKC Thunder. In this most recent game, Christian Wood dominated for 31 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 blocks on 68% shooting from the field. The Thunder were limited to 32 percent shooting from the field and 33% shooting from long range, as the Rockets controlled the game from start to finish. Celtics are still without a win and have struggled in both games so far. They have also listed Jaylen Brown as questionable for this one, he is a big contributor for them on both ends of the court. Boston is currently ranked 27th in offense, so there is great value in backing the Rockets to get the home win here.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for Boston Celtics vs. Houston Rockets.

Christian Wood Over 20.5 Points (-106)

After opening the season with just 16 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Wood proved once again he is the main scoring threat for the Houston Rockets this season. In Game 2 of the season he drained a cool 31 points against the OKC Thunder at home on 13-for-19 shooting from the field and 4-for-6 from distance while attempting just one free-throw the entire game. He is a versatile scorer capable of getting buckets in a variety of ways. Last season he averaged 21 points per game and scored 20 or more points 25 times during the course of the season. Against the Celtics, who have struggled defensively in both games this season, he should have a good game–especially with the uncertainty surrounding Jaylen Brown.

Kevin Porter Jr. Over 5.5 Assists (+106)

D.J. Augustine is literally the only official point guard listed on the entire Houston Rockets roster, therefore we have other players stepping up in ball handling duties. Porter Jr. took full advantage of that against the Thunder as he racked up 10 assists on the night. Against the offensively limited Celtics he should have another opportunity to distribute, especially if Brown isn’t playing. Houston has attempted 33 and 38 three-pointers in two games so far and someone has to feed all those shooters, so there’s definitely value in betting on Porter Jr.
