The NBA might not move the betting needle quite as much as a Monday Night Football matchup, but that certainly doesn’t mean it can’t compete in the value department.

And while Bills-Patriots is offering a valuable bet tonight (per our NFL model), the biggest betting edge across the multi-sport slate comes by way of tonight’s Rockets-Nuggets matchup.

Let’s take a look.

NBA Pick: Rockets vs. Nuggets

An opening spread of Denver -9 has already come down rather considerably to -6.5, and even following that move, our model suggests there’s more room to go.

We’re projecting the true spread for this game at Denver -4.4, which gives the Rockets more than two points’ worth of value at the current number, and earns them an A- value grade — the highest on tonight’s slate.

It should also be noted that some books are still hanging onto the +7 line (as of writing, at least), so be sure — as always — to shop around for the best number before punching in your bet.
