Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns Betting Picks

The Nuggets opening at -1.5 points across the spread comes us a surprise considering the team’s status among the elite teams in the league. Online Bookmakers must have taken into consideration the lack of abled bodies on their roster. Add the fact that the Suns are coming off a big win over the Rockets, and we have a surprisingly narrow spread for this game.

ATS: Pick the Nuggets to cover the 1.5-point spread. Denver is 4-1 ATS in their last five games and should be poised to get another ATS win.

TOTALs: Pick the UNDER at 219 points. The Nuggets scored only 98 points in the win vs. the Jazz and is expected to play great defense on the Suns in their third matchup of the season.

Score Prediction: 110 – 103 Nuggets
