Bottom Dwelling Houston With Wembenyama at Stake

Which Team Will Blast Off?

Anyone choosing to bet on NBA games this evening will likely go for the Denver Nuggets, which would make quite a bit of sense.

This may be the game where Nikola Jokic comes back to the court after missing the last three, making it impossible for the Houston Rockets to have a genuine chance of claiming a win.

NBA lines are all against the Rockets, who have done nothing but lose. They are thinking about next season, and this is probably Stephen Silas’ last week with the team.

Nuggets Continue to Dig for Gold

Basketball odds have Denver poised for a win in this match. It has been a good season for the Nuggets, as they are a victory away from clinching the top seed in the West for the postseason.

Aaron Gordon at the center isn’t something they have tried for the majority of a game before, but it helped them best matchup against the Golden State Warriors. And it worked out well on Sunday as they came away with the victory.

From a basketball perspective, it was good to see them trying something else, and NBA lines will favor them even more if they can handle games this way.

Rockets Try to Relaunch in Final Week

Betting on the Rockets is not a fun activity, and those who do it might need to reconsider their priorities. It has been a rough stretch since the year kicked off, as they have limped to a 19-60 record.

There are some impressive wins on the resume, including knocking off the Celtics a few weeks ago and nearly knocking off Brooklyn in the game that followed. But all the odds have been against them, and few things have gone their way.

NBA news surrounding them has been negative from the beginning. For example, KJ Martin requested a trade last season, and yet he is still here.

Rockets’ scores and odds have been brutal from the start, but they are nearing the end of things, where they can sit back and just watch the rest of the season unfold.

This is another campaign to forget, and there is no doubt that they will do exactly that. NBA odds tonight will focus on Denver more than these guys. Onwards and upwards, right?

Nuggets vs Rockets Head-to-Head

Denver will look to make it a series sweep on Tuesday, already winning the first three meetings this season. The last head-to-head was on Feb. 28, which the Nuggets won 133-122.

Houston leads the all-time series 102-97, but within a few years, the leader atop this board might shift to become the opposition. Denver has their number, and it’s programmed on speed dial.

Nuggets vs Rockets and Picks Prediction

The Nuggets are 9-point favorites for this match. This is surprisingly low, and considering Denver has won the last five meetings by 11 points or more, this could be an easy NBA pick.

The over/under is set at 230. Another over will kick in, and it’s wise to go for it. The over has hit in four consecutive Houston contests, whereas it hasn’t in five in a row for Denver. As bad as they have been, the Rockets should be able to score enough points to get what’s theirs here and have a hit.

The Toronto Raptors are listed at -160 in our Vegas NBA odds. This means that if you wager $100 on the Raptors, you have a chance to win $63. The Miami Heat is +140, offering a chance to win $140 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives the Toronto Raptors a 61.54% chance to win, with the Miami Heat at 41.67%.

Nuggets vs Rockets Previous Game (Feb. 28, 2023)

After the beatdown that the Trail Blazers put on the Rockets over the weekend, I believe this spread at 10½ is too short for this matchup. The Rockets are the worst team in the league and only getting worse. With no light at the tunnel’s end, Houston is counting the days until the regular season ends.

The Denver Nuggets have what should be an easy win on Tuesday against an awful Houston Rockets team. The Rockets are on the verge of losing their 10th straight game and remain in last place in the entire NBA. The Nuggets, meanwhile, lead the West and have the third-best record in the league at 43-19. Mismatches don’t get much bigger than this, so buckle up for a possible blowout in Houston.
