Denver Nuggets Betting

The Denver Nuggets are not as good as they seemed last year contending at the top of the NBA Western Conference but they are good enough to hang in for a playoff spot. Nikola Jokic is arguably the best center in the league right now flirting with triple-doubles while Jamal Murray is already showing his playoff form recently. Murray will be written in the history books of the NBA as the first player to reach 50 points without going to the free-throw line. The team lacks depth since Mason Plumlee and Jerami Grant left but are still very much in the mix to give teams in from of them a very tough challenge.

Players to watch: N. Jokic C 29 GP 29 GS 35.8 MIN 27 PTS 2.9 OR 8.2 DR 11.2 REB 8.6 AST 1.7 STL 0.7 BLK 3.4 TO 3 PF 2.5 AST/TO 31.62 PER

Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks are just downright disappointing after being hyped as one of the teams that could make a good run in the NBA Eastern Conference. That vision right now is far-fetched but it should be very much possible probably next season. This team needs to find a way to gain more chemistry and it seemed harder than said. Trae Young has been dubbed as Steph Curry 2.0 but he needs to find a way to lead this team and fulfill his potential. The young point guard is not short on support with Rajon Rondo, Danilo Gallinari, and Clint Capela in the mix. The team is complete in most positions and it is just finding a way to mix it all up.

Players to Watch: T. Young PG 27 GP 27 GS 34.7 MIN 26.6 PTS 0.7 OR 3.2 DR 3.9 REB 9.3 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 4.3 TO 2 PF 2.2 AST/TO 23.37 PER
