Profitable data-driven system picks

The Rockets have lost a whopping 12 games in a row, the longest current losing streak in the NBA by a four-game margin. On Wednesday, Nets star and former Rockets guard James Harden will return to Houston to take on the franchise he so unceremoniously broke up with.

While Houston has been rough on both sides of the ball sans Christian Wood, the Nets have been dominant on offense regardless of who is in the lineup. Harden has specifically stepped his game up in recent weeks.

Brooklyn has covered in nine of its last 10 games, and Harden has averaged 27.3 points, 9.6 rebounds and 10.6 assists per game over that span per NBA Advanced Stats.

Our PRO Report suggests that sharps are backing Brooklyn to keep Houston’s losing streak going.
