The Nuggets and Suns might be the highest scoring game of the night and the NBA Odds for the total show why. At 220 ½ and even 221 points at some shops, these two fast-paced teams are going to have a barn burner tonight, leading to the over in the betting odds. 

Suns vs. Nuggets

If the Pistons and Knicks is one of the lowest scoring games of the evening, the Suns and Nuggets might be one of the highest. The NBA Odds makers have the total for this one at 220 ½, but both teams are going to push that number over the top.

The Suns are playing at the fastest pace of any team in the league and their defensive rating 109.4 points allowed per 100 possessions is going to go up again tonight. The Nuggets aren't far behind. They are allowing about 107.7 points per 100 possessions and their pace is close to 100 possessions per 48 minutes this season.

If you add that up, that's about 218 points, meaning all we need is another couple of baskets to cash the over from what these two teams are averaging this season.

Plus, the Suns are allowing the second most free throws per field goal attempt this season on defense and guess who is taking more free throws than almost every team this season? That's right, the Nuggets. The NBA Odds are begging you to take the over because if there are a bunch of points being scored when the clock is stopped, the over is a great bargain.
