Nuggets vs Rockets Prop Bets

All Nuggets vs Rockets prop bets and odds are available here via FanDuel Sportsbook.

Nikola Jokic - Over 38.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-106): Jokic is an absolute monster in all facets of the game for the Nuggets. On the season he's averaging 18.8 points, 10 rebounds and 7.5 assists. When he played the Rockets earlier this season, Jokic put up 14 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. While that performance wouldn't hit the over this time around, he did have a poor shooting night and still managed to hit a combined 33. 

- James Harden Made Threes:  Over 5.5 (+104): Harden has been the hottest scorer in the league over the past couple of weeks by launching 3-pointers at a near-historic rate. He has only taken fewer than 10 three-point attempts seven times this season and hasn't done so since December 15. Harden has also taken 40 combined attempts in the past two games and, being a 40-percent shooter, he should be able to hit over five. He's hit five or more in nine straight games and six or more in six of those nine games. Harden is going to be shooting from deep early and often against Denver.
