Free NBA Pick: UNDER 216 ½Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

The Thunder had their eight-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday, but they come into this game against a team that has lost their last two games by 2 points or less. Both will want to bounce back and get the win, and defense might be key to the game plans of both coaching staffs.

The last time these two met, the final was 95-94, and the first time they met the Nuggets won at home 102-94. The Thunder offense is playing a lot better than it was back in those games, but against a sneakily good defensive team, they may fall into the low 100s tonight on the road.

OKC is still averaging less than 105 points per game on the road, and Denver is allowing only 102.8 points per game at home this season.

With one day off in between games this season, these two teams combined to cash the under at 35-24 this season. In games against the West, Denver is 21-12 cashing the under and the Thunder aren’t bad either in conference games, cashing the under at 16-12.

In divisional games, these two combined to cash the under at 17-6 this season, and the Nuggets are 9-3 cashing the under in their last 12 home games against Western Conference teams.
