Charlotte Hornets vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks

Online bookmakers are bullish that the Nuggets will blow out the skidding Hornets on Wednesday. Although the availability of Harris and Murray is still up in the air, Denver possesses one of the deepest benches in the NBA. More so, Nikola Jokic is peaking at the right time.

Moneyline: Pick the Nuggets at -500. Surprisingly, Denver is 4-6 in their last 10 head-to-head meetings with the Hornets. However, everybody knows that this Nuggets team is an elite ballclub. It would take a Devonte’ Graham explosion and more to topple this Western Conference superpower.

ATS: Bet the Nuggets to cover the 11-point spread. Denver has racked up three ATS wins in their last four games, including a huge 12.6-point spread vs. Cleveland last January 11.

TOTALs: Bet on OVER at 213 points. The Nuggets, who started the season as a defensive team that limit opponents under the century mark, are scoring way above 100 in their last 10 games and allowing teams to put up 100 or more as of late. The OVER is also 6-4 in the Nuggets’ last 10 outings.

Score Prediction: 118 – 103 Nuggets
