Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets: Prediction and Betting Tips

21:00, Nov 06 2021
The Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets will face each other in the NBA regular season. The match is scheduled for the 7th of November at 21:00 UK time.

Possible line-ups for the match:

Denver Nuggets:
G – Monte Morris; G – Will Barton; F – Michael Porter Jr.; F – Aaron Gordon; C – Nikola Jokic.
Houston Rockets:
G – Jalen Green; G – Kevin Porter Jr.; F – Jae’ Sean Tate; F – Christian Wood; C – Alperen Sengun.

Denver Nuggets:

Mike Malone’s team hasn’t had the best start to the new season. The Nuggets have already lost four games. Two of their losses came against the Memphis Grizzlies. First Nikola Jokic and company lost 97-106, then 106-108.

We can’t ignore the fact that the Nuggets have been paying more attention to defense this season. Perhaps the injury of Jamal Murray has had an impact on that. The Canadien’s absence has diminished the team’s attacking options, and his replacement hasn’t been very effective yet. Aaron Gordon hasn’t been able to fill that role yet. Michael Porter Jr., Will Barton and Nikola Jokic carry the team, but their efforts are not always enough.

Houston Rockets:

After James Harden left, Houston fell apart. Management had brought the team to a standstill. Why did they buy the transfer of  John Wall if he doesn’t play? The former Washington player will not play for the Rockets this season. Regardless, he will get almost $92 million. An absurd situation.

The Rockets picked up their only win of the season at the start of the regular season, beating Oklahoma City Thunder 124-91. In their most recent games, the Houston Rockets lost twice to the LA Lakers (85-95 and 117-119) and also to Phoenix Suns (111-123).

Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets statistics:

  • 16.5 and 19.3 – that’s how many losses the teams have allowed this NBA season.
  • The Houston Rockets have 8.4 steals per game on average this regular season.
  • In the last three games, the Nuggets have not won in the first quarter.
  • Nikola Jokic is scoring 22.3 points at home on average this season.

Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets Tips:

The Denver Nuggets are a slow team. In 6 of their last 8 games, the Nuggets have not allowed more than 100 points per game to their opponents. Houston’s attacking line is not that strong. It’s unlikely the Rockets can play any better.

Our first prediction is total match points under 222.5 with the odds of 1.73 with the VBet bookmaker.

The Denver Nuggets have looked unconvincing in recent games. Mike Malone’s team has been struggling, so we have our doubts about a very easy win for the home team. Most likely, the visitors will be able to put up a fight.

Our second prediction is Nuggets’ win with -7 points handicap with the odds of 1.61 with the VBet bookmaker.
