Houston Rockets at Denver Nuggets Preview & Picks

Denver are backed to cover as they record another home win.

Houston were the Nuggets' bogey team early in the season, but Denver appeared to put that to rest with a comfortable win over the Rockets last month.

  • Denver Nuggets are 9-0 at home this season
  • Denver beat Houston by 10 points when the teams last met on November 29
  • Houston Rockets are 0-3-0 ATS in their last 3 road games
  • The Under has cashed in 2 of the 3 meetings this season

Head To Head

  • Houston Rockets lead the all-time series 109-100
  • Denver Nuggets won 134-124 when the two teams last met on November 29

Houston Rockets Form

Houston head to Denver looking to build on a win that snapped a three-game losing skid and improved their record to 9-9.

The Rockets rebounded from a three-game losing run in late November with back-to-back wins at home, downing Memphis 111-91 and Denver 106-86.

They failed to build on that when they went back out on the road though, suffering three more defeats on their travels.

Houston lost 121-115 in Dallas, before heading to Denver for a 134-124 loss and Los Angeles for a 107-97 defeat at the hands of the Lakers.

A return home brought return to winning ways though, as the Rockets beat Oklahoma City 110-101 on Wednesday night.

Denver Nuggets Form

Denver return home on the back of a couple of road defeats that dropped them to 14-8 on the season.

The Nuggets form cooled in the second half of November as they lost five times in a six-game spell.

They did get back on track before the end of the month though, bouncing back from a loss to Houston with four straight wins.

Denver beat San Antonio 132-120 at home and the LA Clippers 113-104 on the road, before taking down Houston, 134-124, in their final game of the month.

The Nuggets then made a winning start to December as they won 119-111 in Phoenix, only to then lose 123-117 in Sacramento and 111-102 at the LA Clippers.

Verdict

'Normal service' was resumed as Denver beat Houston by double digits last month, and we are expecting more of the same here.
