Betting Odds

  1. The Rockets prevailed in their last four call-ins to Denver, including a 109-99 victory on Nov. 13.
  2. Houston PF Kenneth Faried – who spent his first seven NBA seasons with the Nuggets – recorded three double-doubles and is averaging 17.3 points and 11.7 rebounds during the stretch.
  3. Beasley scored 22 points against New Orleans and is averaging 18.3 points over the last four contests.

Predictions

Nuggets have beat their opponents under 100 points 17 times this season, but they failed to do so in both clashes opposing the Rockets. The Rockets like a quick game and three-pointers, while the Nuggets are also good at it. That is the reason this game cannot be defensive, so we can predict a lot of points from both teams.
