Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets bowed to the Golden State Warriors in their last assignment in what most brand as shocking. But the loss was of Denver’s own doing. They were sloppy on offense and were outgun by the Dubs. Paul Millsap and Will Barton led the team in that losing cause and will be looking for redemption. Denver is one of the better defensive teams this season and will look to clamp down on the Hornets star players.

Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets are out of the playoff picture and are trying to end the season strong. Consistency in offense is needed if Charlotte wants to hand the Nuggets another stunning loss. That depends on how Terry Rozier and Miles Bridges respond to the challenge. Charlotte also has a decent defensive matrix but need to step it up against Denver. The Nuggets have multiple offensive options, a reason why they are at the top of the West standings.
