The Houston Rockets (13-47) face off against the Denver Nuggets (43-19) on Tuesday at the Toyota Center. The game is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. EST. As professional NBA handicappers, we have analyzed the pre-game information and examined Sportsbook’s odds for the Nuggets vs. Rockets matchup. In this post, we offer our opinion on who we think will win the game, the final score, and our predictions for the moneyline, against the spread, and over/under.

Injury List

Before we dive into our predictions, let’s take a quick look at the injury list for both teams. Kevin Porter Jr. for the Rockets has been upgraded to questionable with a left foot contusion, while Jae’Sean Tate is out. For the Nuggets, Aaron Gordon and Jamal Murray are day-to-day, Zeke Nnaji is out, and Collin Gillespie remains out with a lower leg injury.

Prediction

Our analysis predicts that the Denver Nuggets will come out victorious with a final score of Rockets 110, Nuggets 130. While the Rockets have improved with the addition of Jalen Green to the starting lineup, the Nuggets have won nine times in a row against the Rockets, and we believe they will continue their dominance in this game.

Moneyline

Our professional NBA handicapping team feels confident in betting on the money line, spread, and total because the Nuggets are expected to win. Therefore, we predict that the Nuggets will win the game and recommend placing a bet on the Nuggets’ money line.

Against The Spread

The spread for this game is currently -10.5 Nuggets. While the Nuggets have a strong record, they have struggled to cover the spread in their previous seven away games against teams with a losing record at home, where they are 1-6 against the spread. On the other hand, the Rockets have covered the spread in six of their last eight meetings in Houston against the Nuggets. Therefore, we predict that the Rockets will cover the spread and recommend placing a bet on the Rockets against the spread.

OVER/UNDER

The Over/Under for this game is currently set at 230.5. However, we predict the total points scored in the game will be OVER 230.5. The Under has hit in the Nuggets’ last 12 games scoring more than 125 points in their previous game, but we believe that the Nuggets will continue their high-scoring ways, and the Rockets will also contribute to the total points scored.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Denver Nuggets are the clear favorites to win this game, but we recommend betting on the Rockets to cover the spread. We also predict that the total points scored in the game will be OVER 230.5. Make sure to sign up for our email list to receive more free picks in the future!
