Nuggets vs. Grizzlies Pick
511 Denver Nuggets at 512 Memphis Grizzlies, 8PM ET
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Nuggets are a 6.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 215 points.
Denver is still at -6.5 where it opened, while the total has come down a point from 216. The spread ais -6.5 everywhere I see, while the total is 215 at most books but can be found at 215.5 through shopping around.
As of Saturday morning, 81 percent of public bets are being placed on the visiting Nuggets. Online wager info also says that 60 percent of bets are coming in on the under.
INJURY TO WATCH
Nuggets shooting guard Gary Harris (knee) is questionable to play. For the Grizzlies, point guards Andrew Harrison (wrist) and Mario Chalmers (hamstring) are also questionable.
This line is begging to take the Nuggets. Only three times in the last 10 games has Memphis lost a game by less than seven points, although once was its most recent defeat in a 111-110 home loss to the Bulls for its 19th straight setback. Denver has won all three meetings this season, including 108-102 at Memphis on March 2. Memphis is even further into tanking mode now and both teams are on one day of rest. Don't overthink this and take the Nuggets.
