Warriors on a win streak

Golden State is coming off a 119-114 win at Dallas on Sunday for a fourth straight victory. However, they are 2-2 against the spread during this win streak. The Warriors are 29-14 overall, 12-8 on the road, 18-25 against the spread and 23-20 with the over.

The Warriors have one of the top offenses in the NBA. They rank second in scoring (117.4 ppg), first in FG percentage (48.6), fourth in 3-point percentage (38.5) and first in free-throw percentage (82.4). Defensively, Golden State is giving up 111.7 points per game. Draymond Green is battling a knee injury, but listed as probable to play tonight. Steph Curry is leading the team with 29.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game while Kevin Durant is adding 28.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.1 assists per contest.

Nuggets tough at home

Denver is coming off a 116-113 win over Portland at home on Sunday. The Nuggets have won 12 straight games at home coming into tonight. Denver is now 29-13 on the season, 18-3 at home, 23-19 against the spread and 23-18-1 with the under.

The Nuggets have a very strong defense, allowing just 105.5 points per game while limiting opponents to 33.2 percent from the arc. Offensively, Denver is putting up 110.4 points per game while shooting 46.5 percent from the field. Both Trey Lyles and Garry Harris are questionable to play tonight due to injuries. Nikola Jokic is leading the team with 19.7 points, 10.2 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game while Jamal Murray is adding 18.5 points per game.

NBA Betting Trends

Golden State

The Warriors are just 5-16 against the spread in their last 21 conference games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games when playing on 1 day of rest.

Denver

The Nuggets have covered the spread in four straight home games against a team with a winning road record and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games.

Prediction:

These two met back in October and Denver got a 100-98 win. The Warriors weren’t playing very well back then, but The Nuggets have won four of their last six against Golden State over the last few years. The Nuggets give the Warriors some trouble and they struggle to deal with Jokic. This game means a lot more to Denver than it does to the two-time defending champs, so I expect the Nuggets to play a notch above average tonight and pick up a win over the Warriors.

NBA Prediction: Denver Nuggets +1
