WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE: Denver. As of Wednesday afternoon, 67% of betting tickets are on the Nuggets while 88% of the money is also on Denver to cover the point spread.

INJURY REPORT: For the Suns, Jared Dudley is questionable to play tonight due to an illness. The Nuggets, meanwhile, will not have Paul Millsap, who remains out with a wrist injury

OUR PREDICTION: Denver. The Suns are 6-13-1 against the spread in their last 20 games in Denver and are winless at 0-6 against the number in their last six games versus the Nuggets overall. Phoenix has also failed to cover the spread in four of its last five games when its opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous game.

On the other side, the Nuggets have covered the spread in four of their last five games overall, are 7-3 against the number in their last 10 home games, and are 35-15-2 against the spread in their last 52 games playing on three or more days of rest. They’re also 6-1-1 at the betting window in their last eight games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
