Rockets vs. Hawks Prediction & Pick

These are two teams going in different directions. The season has been a struggle once again for the Rockets, who are just 3-14 and averaging the fifth-fewest points per game. Meanwhile, the Hawks' offense (No. 11 in PPG) has been a key part of their 11-7 start.

Atlanta's intimidating backcourt of Trae Young and Dejounte Murray should be licking its chops with Houston's weak defense on the menu. The Rockets have surrendered the sixth-most PPG, so the Hawks' playmakers should be able to lead their team to an easy victory.

Final Score Prediction: Rockets: 105 | Hawks: 120

Rockets vs. Hawks Best Bet

Though Young remains the No. 1 option for Atlanta, Murray has integrated seamlessly into the offense. He's kept up his distributing even as the complement to Young, averaging 7.1 assists per game. Murray has posted at least 7 assists in half of his 18 games this season, including an 11-dime outing against the Rockets in the season-opener.

There are a ton of points expected in this one given the high over/under, and Murray should be involved in setting up plenty of buckets against a weak defense.

Bet: Dejounte Murray Over 6.5 Assists (-120)
