GAME PREVIEW 📝

Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets have been picking up the pieces after their bad start for the season. They were tested well by the Boston Celtics in this NBA Eastern Conference swing and lost by 13 points to snap their three-game winning streak. Nikola Jokic had 43 points to lead the team but it was not enough to get them over the hill. Fingers have been pointed to Michael Porter Jr. who laid a goose egg after missing all his eight shots from the field. Playoff Jamal Murray made a sighting giving the team 25 points, six rebounds and six assists while Facundo Campazzo finished with 15.

Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards are looking pretty well winning back-to-back games after having an uninspired start for the season. They managed to pick up wins over the Boston Celtics and followed it up with a victory over the Houston Rockets. Bradley Beal led the team in scoring with 37 markers while Russell Westbrook tallied another triple-double. Five more Wizards came out to produce double-figure scoring and this looks like the team that they wanted to be during the start of the season. Moritz Wagner has been starting at center but much credit to Rui Hachimura for stepping up as the team’s third option.
Players to Watch: B. Beal SG 23 GP 23 GS 35.2 MIN 33.1 PTS 1.4 OR 3.8 DR 5.2 REB 4.4 AST 1.4 STL 0.5 BLK 3.1 TO 2.6 PF 1.4 AST/TO 25.19 PER
