Brooklyn Nets vs Denver Nuggets 11/14/2019 NBA Spread and Game Analysis
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Brooklyn Nets vs Denver Nuggets 11/14/2019 – Blame it on the injuries and bad defense why the Brooklyn Nets (4-6) have been miserably underperforming in NBA Moneyline and NBA spread betting so far this season. The Nuggets (7-3), meanwhile, are still searching for ways on how to maximize their offense that ranks fourth to the last in the league. The matchup between the Nets and the Nuggets should provide some intrigue in Thursday’s NBA lineup, as it features two teams striving to stay elite in their respective conferences.

Brooklyn Nets vs Denver Nuggets 11/14/2019 Betting Odds
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Nets have the talent to compete for a top-4 spot in the East but are so far falling short of their potential because of injuries and weak defense, a really weak defense. In fact, Brooklyn is currently 29th in the league in points allowed per game (121 points). Kyrie Irving is dealing with a nagging shoulder injury, while Caris Levert is expected to sit for several weeks due to a thumb injury.
Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (29.7 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 7.0 APG), Spencer Dinwiddie (17.1 PPG, 2.4 RPG, 4.7 APG), Caris LeVert (16.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.0 APG)
Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets didn’t saw what hit them last Tuesday as Trae Young erupted for 42 points and 11 assists to lead the Hawks to a rare road win, 125-121, in Mile High. Denver’s output in that game was their highest this season. They are averaging just 105 points per game on 43 FG% and 34 3PT% through their first 10 games.
Players to Watch: Jamal Murray (18.7 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 4.6 APG), Nikola Jokic (17.0 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 6.1 APG), Will Barton (15.6 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 2.5 APG)

Brooklyn Nets vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks
The Nets recently signed veteran swingman Iman Shumpert in an attempt to cushion the impact of Levert’s absence in the lineup. But the biggest concern for the Nets is the health of Kyrie Irving, who is dealing with a bothersome shoulder injury.
Moneyline: The Nuggets are 3-2 at the Pepsi Center this season, and should have an easy time dispatching the Nets, in the event Irving opts to sit out.
ATS: Despite sporting an ugly 3-6-1 record against the spread, I feel the Nuggets will get it done with a little bit of mouthful from Mike Malone.
TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the NBA over/under totals of 225.5 points. The Nets might have no defense, but I doubt the Nuggets can match or even exceed their 121-point explosion in their last game. Moreover, the possibility of Irving sitting out means the game could be missing a walking 25-point per game scorer.
Score Prediction: 108-98 Nuggets
