NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers are 11-5 against the spread in their last 16 road games, but just 1-4 ATS in their last five following a win.

Denver

The Nuggets are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games, but 0-4 ATS in their last four games playing on 1 day of rest.

Prediction:

The home team has won and covered in both meetings this season. The Nuggets won by 21 points at home on Jan. 10. Denver has been very strong at home throughout the season, going 20-9 against the spread. Following the trades, the Clippers don’t have as much offensive fire power and that should open the door for Denver to really pull away and cover this spread.

NBA Prediction: Denver Nuggets -9
