NBA action on Christmas Day has five games on the slate and we have decided to place our bet on the one featuring the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets. The game will be played at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas with a tip-off time of 8:00 PM ET. The Spurs have put together a 22-6 record to begin the season and the Rockets are 18-11. We will back the host Spurs to grab the win in this game.

San Antonio Spurs: One of best teams in the West

With their 22-6 record, the Spurs are just one game behind the Portland Trail Blazers for the top spot in the Western Conference. Ahead of them by a half-game are the Oklahoma City Thunder. If the Trail Blazers can keep up their pace, this should be an exciting season in the bid for the number one spot in the West as the playoffs near. The Spurs are 10-3 at home this season.

Houston Rockets: Sitting in sixth spot in West

With an overall record of 18-11, the Rockets are nothing to sneeze at in the West either. They are in sixth place in the conference standings and are 7-7 on the road so far this year. They are 5.5 games out of the first spot in the West and still have plenty of time to improve. They will need to improve when playing against Western Conference teams as they are just 9-9 this year.
