OUR PREDICTION: The Rockets have struggled mightily in the Mile High City, going 2-6 at the betting window in their last eight games in Denver and are 5-12 against the spread in their last 17 games overall versus the Nuggets. That said, Houston has been one of the better underdog teams in the league to start the season, going 6-2 against the spread as a dog this season and winning by an average margin of 0.4 points per game in those eight contests. As a home favorite, the Nuggets are 2-2 against the spread, winning by just 2.8 points per game. Thus, even if Houston loses coming off that big win in Oakland last night, the Rockets are still a great value at +3.5.
