The Denver Nuggets travel to Phoenix Monday to take on the Suns and John Martin says that Denver will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Phoenix –5.5.

Martin writes: The Nuggets are fighting for their playoff lives. They are playing as well as any team in the league right now because of it. The Denver Nuggets hope to match a season-high six-game winning streak Monday when they face the Phoenix Suns. Denver's winning streak has vaulted the Nuggets into a three-way tie for seventh in the Western Conference with Golden State (45-28) and Dallas (45-28). Each team has nine games remaining. The Nuggets have lost 6 straight meetings in Phoenix, but this team now realizes it’s time to get over the hump with their season on the line. Denver will pull off this upset tonight. Denver is 14-2 ATS versus teams who average 7 or less steals/game - 2nd half of the season this season. Cash in with Denver as the underdog.

Public betting information currently shows that of the 3,065 wagers placed on tonight’s game, 56% of bettors like Phoenix –5.5. Accuscore agrees with the public and has made the Suns a 69% favorite.
