Washington Wizards vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks

The wide margin in the NBA spread showed Bookmakers aren’t sure if the Wizards’ offense will overcome Denver’s suffocating defense. The 106-points output against the Kings further validates the oddsmakers’ belief that Washington struggles against high-quality defense.

Moneyline: The Nuggets are 2-1 in the last three meetings with the Wizards and 5-1 on the road.

ATS: No doubt the Nuggets will win this game, but the Wiz could view the 9-point spread as another opportunity to get an ATS win. Washington has Bradley Beal and a very productive bench to stay within range all game.

TOTALs: The total for this game opened at low 227 points. The UNDER looks like a solid choice in this one since the Nuggets have the reputation of really punishing sub. 500 teams on the defensive end with the exception of the Atlanta Hawks, who dropped 125 points on them two weeks ago.

Score Prediction: 103-95 Nuggets
