Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks
The Suns were one of the best NBA bets in the opening three weeks of the 2019-20 NBA season. The buzz surrounding Phoenix has wound down a bit, but they figure to be a competitive team for the remainder of their campaign. As for the Nuggets, the back-to-back hiccups against New Orleans and Dallas have apparently helped mold Denver’s defensive identity to what it is right now.
Moneyline: The Nuggets barely squeaked past the Suns in their first meeting, 108-107. Back then, Denver’s potent defense was at its initial stage. Expect the home team to really suffocate the Suns’ shooters in this game, as shutting their gunners down will be the key in this match.
ATS: The Nuggets might be the popular SU pick over the Suns, but a 9-point spread against a very competitive Sun’s squad will prevent them from tallying an ATS win.
TOTALs: The total for this game will go UNDER 221 points. The Nuggets’ defense is no joke. The Suns will try to speed up the pace of the game and score a bunch of points, but Denver’s defense will still find a way to slow them down and hold the visitor’s output below 100 points.
Score Prediction: 105-98 Nuggets
