Prediction

Nuggets 109, Warriors 99

Moneyline (ML)

Denver (-200) is costly. Every $2 wagered on the Nuggets to win will profit only $1. The Warriors (+165) offer a 1.65-to-1 payout, but I’ll PASS. I can’t back a team on a nine-game losing streak. Golden State is 6-14 at home, while Denver is 11-7 on the road.

Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The NUGGETS ( -4.5, -115) are worth a small play despite possibly missing three starters – reserve PF Michael Porter Jr. scored 19 points Wednesday, while PG P.J. Rozier added 12 points as Murray’s replacement in the second half. Meanwhile, the Warriors have only been within 8 points twice during their nine-game skid and they’ve dropped their last two games by a combined 47 points.

New to sports betting? Every $1.15 wagered on the Nuggets spread will profit $1 if they win by 5 or more points.

Over/Under (O/U)

The UNDER 213.5 (- 106) is the STRONGEST PLAY. Golden State ranks 28th in scoring at 104.5 points per game; Denver is 20th at 108.9 PPG. As for O/U records, the Warriors are 17-25 on the season, and the Nuggets are 17-23. Toss in that both teams are missing players due to injuries and the Under looks pretty, pretty good.
