In what should be one of the best matchups on Sunday, I expect the Rockets backcourt to be the difference. Westbrook should have a huge night in this one as he has a big edge over Murray. Jokic will play well for Denver but it won’t be enough to overcome the Rockets perimeter play.. Read more at capperspicks.com

Pick : Denver Nuggets
The Nuggets are dealing with several key injuries that are going to take a toll on their rotation. Missing Murray and Millsap takes away 40 percent of their starting lineup though Jokic has stepped up his production of late. Houston has won two straight after losing four straight though Harden has struggled with his shot of late. The Rockets got a solid outing from Westbrook to make up for their star’s issues but the fact remains that the altitude and a short rotation isn’t going to be beneficial for the team. Denver plays extremely well at home, posting a 17-6 mark while Houston is only 13-9 on the road. Give the Nuggets a slight edge here.. Read more at winnersandwhinners.com

The Rockets have the 2nd best scoring offense in the league, while the Nuggets have the 5th best scoring defense. While the Rockets score a lot of points, Houston also gives up a lot of points. The Rockets rank 22nd in scoring defense, allowing over 114 per contest. I think the Nuggets will be able to do enough defensively, to stay in this game.

Pick : Denver
I will be going with the Nuggets in this matchup. Denver is tough as nails at home and Houston allows too many points for me to go against the Rockets. Houston beat Denver by 16 points in their previous meeting earlier this week and has won both their previous meetings. The Nuggets are too good a team to suffer a season series sweep and especially so against the defensively challenged Rockets. Denver allows the fifth-fewest points at home in the NBA this season and I think they are going to beat Houston. I will take the Nuggets to defeat the Rockets in this one.. Read more at statsalt.com

Pick : Denver Nuggets -2
The home team has won and covered the spread in all three meetings this year, so I am going to ride the trend and say Denver gets the job done today. Harden won’t be 100 percent if he plays, so that takes a lot of offense away from the Rockets. Westbrook has proven he can’t really lead Houston consistently on his own. The Rockets don’t shoot a high percent and are facing a team that plays good defense, so I expect Houston to struggle to find consistent points.. Read more at thespread.com

Pick : Nuggets
Denvers good play on Sunday all depends on how well Nikola Jokic plays he is the Swiss Army knife of the Nuggets he can do it all from rebounds to scoring to dishing the basketball. Jokic just 24 years old will look to get off early against Houston. Look for the Nuggets to establish the paint early and get up by 20 at the half and hold on to cover and win this game 125-117..

Pick : Denver Nuggets +6.5
The Nuggets are playing good on the year and are coming in with quite a bit of momentum on the year. The Rockets have a great offense, but the offense for the Rockets has not been able to keep pace with the number of points the defense is giving up in the past 4 games and that will definitely show up in the game here. Final Score, Denver Nuggets win and cover the spread 112-105. Read more at winningfreepicks.com
