the iceman's free pick
Denver vs. Houston,
01/22/2020 20:00 EDT
Point Spread: +8/-108 Denver
This is a Free play on the Denver Nuggets.
The Houston Rockets have been a dumpster fire in recent weeks, losing four straight and five of their last six. James Harden has been struggling, and he was 1-of-17 from beyond the arc in Monday's loss to Oklahoma City. Russell Westbrook has scored 30+ points in five straight games, but it hasn't translated into wins for the Rockets. The bookmakers are asking Houston to cover an eight point spread here at home, against a Denver team that has a better overall record and is coming off four straight road wins. Until the Rockets snap out of their funk, I would be reluctant to lay points betting on Houston.
