Denver Nuggets DFS Notes

Nikola Jokic recorded his 60th double-double of the season in Saturday's 113-107 win over the Thunder, posting a line of 35 points (13-of-15 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), 12 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and two blocks in 35 minutes. With Oklahoma City starting Isaiah Roby in the middle, fantasy managers and DFS players alike were expecting a big night out of Jokic. While the reigning MVP may not have recorded a triple-double he did come close, and the field-goal and free-throw percentages were outstanding. Denver plays four games next week with no back-to-backs, so expect more of the same from Jokic.

Charlotte Hornets DFS Notes

Terry Rozier scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting (2-of-2 FT) Sunday, to go with seven rebounds, four assists, two triples, one steal and three turnovers across 37 minutes in a win over the Nets. The Hornets have won seven of their past eight games, and with the win tonight, they moved past Brooklyn for the No. 8 seed out East. They're now only 3.5 games behind the No. 6 seeded Raptors, so if they keep up their strong play, they may be able to dodge the play-in tournament. LaMelo Ball was Charlotte's leading scorer tonight, and he finished with 33 points (10-of-21 FG, 6-of-8 FT), seven rebounds, nine dimes, seven triples, three steals and one turnover in the nine-point win over Brooklyn.

Nuggets vs. Hornets NBA Betting Prediction

On the other side, the Hornets are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall and are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five home games versus a team with a winning road record.
