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.
