The Houston Rockets are a complete mess right now, and they don't cover numbers despite being massive underdogs every night. The Rockets are losing their last five games by an average of 11.6 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 10.9 points. The Denver Nuggets have had consistency issues at times, and they don't cover numbers a ton, but backing the Rockets in any shape or form hasn't been an option for a while. Give me the Nuggets.
