Nuggets vs. Rockets Pick

NBA Totals Predictions: Nuggets vs. Rockets 11/22/17

Are the Denver Nuggets and host Houston Rockets going to race past the projected total tonight at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Rockets are a 10-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under sits at 229 points.

Denver enters action with a 10-7 overall record and 7-10 ATS after a 114-98 win at the Kings. Houston is 13-4 and 10-7 ATS following a 105-83 victory at the Grizzlies. The Rockets went 4-0 straight up and 2-2 ATS in four meetings last season. The over-under went 2-2.

The Nuggets were paced by Will Barton with 25 points, six rebounds and five assists in the win at Sacramento. Gary Harris had 20 points and three steals. Jamal Murray scored 18, while Nikola Jokic added 16 points along with 14 boards and three assists. Denver was without two starters in Paul Millsap and Wilson Chandler. Millsap will be a huge loss as he is having wrist injury and is out for maybe up to three months or more.

James Harden tallied 29 points, seven assists, five boards and three steals in the win at Memphis. Clint Capela accounted for 17 points, 13 rebounds and three blocked shots. Chris Paul added 17 points, six assists and two steals. Houston led 59-50 at halftime and outscored the hosts in every quarter.

Denver is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Houston. The over is 5-0 in the last five Denver games when the opponent scores 100 or more points in the previous game.

Bet on Nuggets vs. Rockets

The loss of Millsap hurts a lot on the defensive end and he is also a very capable scorer, although Denver has plenty of other options to fill it up in his absence. But in a game like this against a high-powered offense, a player of Millsap's ilk is almost essential. Expect these two teams to get into a shootout as the scoreboard will light up all night. Take the over.
