The best and worst teams in the Western Conference face off on Tuesday, as the Denver Nuggets are on the road against the Houston Rockets.
Despite the San Antonio Spurs losing 16 games in a row, the Rockets still have a worse record, partially thanks to their own nine-game losing streak.
Houston will get Jalen Green back in the lineup tonight, but Kevin Porter Jr. and Jae’Sean Tate are both listed as out. Aaron Gordon (probable) and Jamal Murray (questionable) are on the injury report for Denver.
Let’s dive into the odds and pick for this lopsided matchup:
Nuggets vs. Rockets odds, spread and total
Nuggets vs. Rockets prediction and pick
There is no way that one could trust this Houston team, as six of its nine losses on this streak have come by double digits.
The Rockets are over .500 against the spread as road underdogs, but they are at a major offensive disadvantage in this game.
Houston ranks dead last in the league in offensive rating while Denver ranks No. 2, and the Nuggets should have a field day if Gordon and Murray are able to go.
Houston has no interest in winning games at this point in the season, and it allowed Damian Lillard to score 71 points against it on Sunday.
Denver lost to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday but bounced back with a double-digit overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Nuggets keep that rolling against a terrible Houston team tonight.
