The Denver Nuggets finish of a long road trip tonight as they visit the Washington Wizards. The Wizards are chasing down the second spot in their division as the Nuggets look to keep their good fortune going.  Let's take a look and break down the NBA picks we chose.

According to NBA betting odds the Nuggets are a 2.0 point home favorite and the posted total is 200.0. These teams have seen 4 of their last 5 meetings go over the total. The underdog has covered 6 of the last 8 games between these clubs. The Wizards are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 versus the Nuggets.

Wizards on the Rise

Washington got off to a terrible 2-7 start to the season. Since then the Wizards are a stellar 7-3 in their last 10-games. Currently they’re 3rd in the Southeast Division 6.0 games behind the 1st place Miami Heat, 1.0-game behind the 2nd place Atlanta Hawks, and are tied for 5th overall in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards have been solid at the Verizon Center thus far going 6-3, and have also gone over the total in 6 of those 9 home games. Unfortunately they come off a surprising 109-105 home overtime loss that sportsbooks had listed them as a 9.5-point favorite versus the lowly Milwaukee Bucks. This will be the final game of a 4-game home stand in which they’ve gone 2-1 so far.

Back in the Saddle

The Nuggets broke a temporary 2-game losing streak in their time out with a 103-92 win at Philadelphia on Saturday. Denver enters tonight winners in 8 of their last 10-games. This will be the final game of a grueling 6-game in 9-day road trip, that’s seen them go 3-2 so far. Denver continues to be one of the more entertaining teams in the NBA averaging 104 and allowing 101 points per game. However, they’ve gone under the total in 7 of their last 10-games.

NBA Super System

Any road favorite or underdog of 3.0 or less that’s playing their 5th game in the last 7-days is 109-55 ATS (66.5%) since the beginning of the 1996-1997 year. I'm going to add the Nuggets as our NBA pick.
