Our handicapping professional has been on fire with his NBA picks, going 5-0 during the past two days. Go inside to get a superb betting edge on Saturday.

Denver Nuggets vs. Charlotte Hornets 
Saturday will be Denver’s fourth road game in the last six days. During the first three, they allowed 118.5 points per game, and opponents shot a sizzling hot 54.5%. The Nuggets have seen each of their previous four games go over the total, and there was a combined 224.8 points scored per contest. Denver has scored 110 points or more in eight of their last nine games. They only time that didn’t reach that plateau was versus Atlanta. That’s a Hawks team which has allowed 98 points or less during eight of its last eleven outings. The current NBA odds have a total of 217.0 on Saturday’s Nuggets and Hornets matchup. Denver has gone 14-2 over the total in their last sixteen games this season when the total is 210.0 or more.

Charlotte has scored 107 points or more in nine of its previous ten contests, and seven of those outings went over the total. During that ten game span, they averaged a lofty 113.8 points scored per game, and converted on a stellar 41.1% of its three point attempts. Denver has allowed a sizable average of 29 free throws per game during their last five games. That’s good news for a Hornets team which has made 78.7% of its free throws this season.

I like this game to be a very high scoring affair, and one of my Saturday NBA picks will be indicative of that prediction.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Indiana Pacers 
Oklahoma City has really tightened the screws defensively of late. During their last five games, they allowed less than 100 points four times, held opponents to a paltry 39.9% shooting, and permitted them to make just 27.5% of its three point shots. If they’re able to hold Indiana less than 100 points on Saturday, it certainly would provide us with superb betting value. Indiana has gone 18-1 (94.7%) under the total in their previous nineteen games this season when they fail to score 100 points. Oklahoma City has seen five of its last six away games stay under the total.

Indiana has gone under the total in its last three, and five of their previous six games overall. Those last three contests averaged a combined 191.7 points per game. During their previous three home games, Indiana has allowed only 96.7 points per contest, held opponents to a stifling 36.7% shooting, and permitted them to knock down a mere 23.2% of their three point attempts.
