If it weren’t for the Miami Heat’s 23-game win streak, everyone would be talking about the Denver Nuggets, who have reeled off 12 straight wins.

The Nuggets (46-22 SU, 42-25-1 ATS) put their streak to the test when they hit the road to face the Oklahoma City Thunder (50-17 SU, 40-25-2 ATS), who are on a modest three-game win streak of their own, and have one eight of their last 10.

The Nuggets have done most of their damage at home this season, amassing a 30-3 record at the Pepsi Center, while also going 24-9 against-the-spread. However, the Thunder are laying nine points as home favorites, where they have posted a nearly as dominant records of 30-4 SU and 24-10 ATS.

If the Nuggets want to keep their streak alive, they will need to overcome their sub-.500 road record (16-19). They have found a bit more success against the spread on the road though, posting an 18-16-1 mark.

OKC is an early 9.5-point favorite, with the total posted at 215.5.
