Doc's Sports Free NBA Pick Friday
Houston vs. Denver,
02/01/2019 22:00 EDT,
Score: 122 - 136
Point Spread: -4½/-103 Denver
James Harden is doing incredible things this season, but this Rockets team is not as good as last year’s squad. The Nuggets have definitely taken their place as the No. 2 team in the west. And we think they will flex their muscles in this key Western Conference matchup on Friday. Denver is almost unbeatable at home at 22-4. They are 18-8 here ATS, which means they are constantly underrated by the oddsmakers. We feel like this is another public line tonight. Houston has a long winning streak going in this series, but that will be broken tonight, and we had this line handicapped at 7, so there is nice value here.
