The Pelicans are down with two of their best players to start the season, but for some reason, they are still favored at the sportsbooks against a sneakily good Nuggets team. With the advantage in size and depth, it's pretty surprising to see the Nuggets as underdogs in the NBA odds here.

The Nuggets are one of the most interesting teams in the league, but one thing is certain, they have depth and they are going to use it. With Mike Malone now in the coaches seat in Denver, I expect him to really put pressure on opposing teams. While they have no one to stop Anthony Davis tonight, outside of Davis the Pelicans have very little talent right now. 

Jrue Holiday is still out caring for his wife, while Tyreke Evans is out for the first few months of the season too. With the Nuggets' size and depth advantage, there is no way they should even be underdogs here. The books are trying to trap you into thinking the Pelicans are good. Don't fall in for that in your NBA pick. Denver's bench will be no match for the Pelicans.
