Rockets vs. Nuggets Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Nuggets slow down red-hot Rockets? 2/25/18

Are the host Denver Nuggets going to secure a fifth straight win and end the 11-game winning streak of the Houston Rockets in the process? Tip-off is at 8PM ET.


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Rockets are a 4.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 225.5 points.

The line opened at 4.5 in favor of Houston, where it currently stands. The total has dropped from 228 points. The spread can be found anywhere between 4 and 5 at various books, while the over-under is anywhere between 225 and 226.


As of Sunday afternoon, 76 percent of public bets have come in on the Rockets. Online wager info also shows that 70 percent of bets have been placed on the over.


Eric Gordon missed the last Rockets game with an illness and is not expected to play tonight. For the Nuggets, three players are questionable - Richard Jefferson (wrist soreness), Kenneth Faried (personal reasons) and Torrey Craig (hamstring).


Houston has won six consecutive head-to-head meetings and are on quite the winning streak. But with the Nuggets being at home and on a hot streak of their own, I'm going to say they play another fantastic game to knock off the Rockets or at least cover the 4.5. Denver cener Nikola Jokic has three consecutive triple-doubles and I wouldn't be shocked if he has another one here.
