3 units on Houston +2.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73) RESULT: WIN
Two teams heading in opposite directions in this game. The Nuggets have dropped three in a row and are only 1-4 with Michael Cooper as their head coach. This could be his last game as the head man on the Denver bench. Anthony has not been the same player since hurting his ankle versus the Heat three weeks ago. Houston has started to play together which has been resulting in victories. There is not a better one-two scoring tandem than Ming and McGrady. Houston is 45-17 ATS in road games after allowing 105 points or more since 1996 and 20-8 ATS in road games after a road game where both teams score 100 or more points since 1996. Three stars on the Rockets plus the points in this one.
