The over has hit in seven of the last eight meetings between these two teams in Denver and is also 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings overall. The over is 9-2-1 in the Nuggets' last 12 home games and has cashed in all four of the Lakers' last four games after they've covered in their previous contest.

Los Angeles ranks dead last in the NBA in terms of defensive efficiency and Denver isn't a brick wall itself, as the Nuggets rank 21st in the league in defensive efficiency. The combined score shouldn't have too much issue eclipsing 212-plus points tonight in Denver.
