  • Pelicans @ Nuggets - Nuggets (-7.5) @ 5/6

Rockets @ Pistons - Rockets (-7.5) @ 10/11

Although the Rockets have just three road wins this year, it's hard not to fancy them against a Detroit team that are currently rock-bottom of the Eastern Conference.

Houston have one of the best defenses in the NBA, and they rank second for points allowed.

The Pistons have collected just three wins so far, and they'll be further hindered tonight with Cade Cunningham out with injury. When it rains, it pours in Michigan.

As I've mentioned, the Rockets haven't had much success on the road, but if you want to win on your travels, there's no better place to do it than in Detroit.

Warriors @ Bulls - Bulls (-3.5) @ 10/11

The Chicago Bulls welcome the Golden State Warriors to the Windy City on Friday night, hoping to implement further misery upon the Northern Californian outfit.

The Bulls come into this game off the back of two overtime wins, while Golden State have been blown out in their past two encounters against Toronto and New Orleans.

The Warriors are 6-8 on their travels so far this term, and rumours are circulating that they want to shake up the roster before the trade deadline, with reportedly everybody bar Stephen Curry on the trading block.

Chicago have been solid at home this year, going 13-9, and I think they can win their fourth-straight match here against a Warriors team in disarray.

Pelicans @ Nuggets - Nuggets (-7.5) @ 5/6

The Nuggets face a surging New Orleans side on Friday night who have won six of their last seven games, as well as seven in a row on the road.

The Pelicans are also coming off two impressive wins in California against the Kings and Warriors.

Denver have been inconsistent on their travels going 11-9, but they've been a force to be reckoned with at home, losing just four games out of the 19 they've played.

Nikola Jokic continues to put together an MVP-calibre season, averaging a triple-double, and he had 27 points in the defeat to Utah on Wednesday night. The Pelicans could be without several starters due to injury and fatigue issues, so I don't think they'll have anybody to slow down the big Serbian.
