Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets 1/1/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Denver Nuggets will go against the Houston Rockets in NBA action in Toyota Center Houston, TX, on Saturday, January 1, 2022, at 8:00 PM (EST).

 

The Denver Nuggets had a rough year as they struggled to keep their team together without two of their three top players, Michael Porter and Jamal Murray. To make matters worse, two additional starters, Monte Morris and Aaron Gordon are doubtful for Saturday, as is a vital role player, Austin Rivers.

 

It’s a positive thing that they still have reigning league MVP Nikola Jokic because he can keep them in the game against anyone. Jokic helped the Nuggets to a 17-16 record and a fifth-place finish in the Western Conference. The Nuggets dominated their last two games in a row.

 

Last Sunday, they defeated the Clippers 103-100 in Los Angeles, and then had their finest victory of the season, defeating the league’s best club, Golden State, 89-86 in Golden State. The match against Golden State was meant to be played at home on Thursday, but it was delayed due to COVID.

 

Jokic had another terrific performance in the 89-86 victory over the Warriors, scoring 22 points and collecting 18 rebounds. He also added 5 assists and 4 steals to his stat line. With 21 points, Will Barton stepped up. With an average of 15.3 points per game, Barton proved to be a consistent second scorer. Jokic is posting MVP-like figures with 25.8 points, 14.8 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game.

 

  • Denver is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • The Denver Nuggets are 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches against Houston.
  • The total went OVER in 8 of Denver’s last 11 matches in the Western Conference.

Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets Predictions 1/1/2022

 

The NBA scheduling authorities were not kind to the Houston Rockets this season, slating them not only on New Year’s Eve but also on New Year’s Day. On Friday night, the Rockets faced the Miami Heat and fell 120-110 as 5-point favorites.

 

The Rockets lost for the sixth time in a row, dropping to 10-26, the worst record in the West. Houston made 44% from the field and 33 percent of its three-point attempts.

 

With 22 points and 7 rebounds, Jae’Sean Tate topped the Rockets. Jalen Green contributed 16 points and 8 rebounds to Christian Wood’s 18 points and 8 rebounds. David Nwaba produced 7 points and a team-high 10 rebounds, while Eric Gordon contributed 15 points.

 

The Rockets rank 19th in the league with 107 points per game. They allow 114.8 points per game, which ranks them 29th in the league. Gordon Mathews and DJ Augustin will not play on Saturday.

 

  • The Houston Rockets are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Houston’s last 5 matches against Denver.
  • Houston is 3-13 SU in their last 16 matches in the Western Conference.

Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets. The NBA pick for this game is the Denver Nuggets. The Rockets are in a tough place right now. They are performing back-to-back on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, not to mention a superior squad.

 

Back-to-backs are difficult enough as it is, but scheduling them on holidays is almost cruel. So, any celebrations the Rockets planned after their win against Miami on Friday night had to be postponed until Saturday morning to prepare for the finest player in basketball.

 

To begin with, the Rockets are reeling, and two crucial role players, Gordon Mathews and DJ Augustin are in COVID procedures. The Nuggets will easily win this game. The Denver Nuggets will win and cover the ATS to a predicted score of 117-108.
