Denver Nuggets Betting

It has been an up and down run for the Nuggets the past weeks and will look to find more consistency in this season. Nikola Jokic is the team’s leader and this Nuggets team has been built around him. Jamaal Murray had been great as well and he is the team’s second-best scoring option. Will Barton has become a good compliment to him as this team boasts a good rotation at the guard spot with Monte Morris and Gary Harris adding up to that depth. So far, some inconsistencies at the forward position have been the problem for this team as Paul Millsap is in and out of the roster. Against the Warriors, expect Jokic to dominate as always and they will ride him to the win.

Players to watch: N. Jokic C 39 GP 39 GS 31.2 MIN 19.3 PTS 2.3 OR 7.5 DR 9.9 REB 6.4 AST 0.9 STL 0.5 BLK 2.5 TO 3 PF 2.6 AST/TO 24.93 PER

Golden State Warriors Betting

Mediocre has been the word used to describe the Warriors season so far with all the expectations and injuries. Draymond Green is the lone player from that championship roster of the Warriors best years and he has been in-and-out of the roster. D’Angelo Russell has been the team’s biggest acquisition but he is also hampered with injuries all season. This is the year that the Warriors are experimenting on their new players and at this point, they should be looking at making a good splash in the next NBA draft. Against the Nuggets, this team will try to find ways to stay afloat but it seems bleak with the type of players that they have on this roster.

Players to Watch: D. Russell SG 24 GP 24 GS 31.6 MIN 23.3 PTS 0.3 OR 3.2 DR 3.5 REB 6 AST 0.8 STL 0.3 BLK 3.1 TO 2.1 PF 1.9 AST/TO 19.11 PER
