NBA Betting Trends
The Nuggets are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games on 1 day of rest, but 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss.
The Warriors are 7-19-1 against the spread in their last 27 home games and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 following a win.
Golden State has won and covered in its last two meetings with Denver, including a 122-105 win at home on March 8. The Nuggets are not playing very consistently right now. Their offense has been held to less than 100 in four of their last five. That’s not going to lead to good things against the Warriors. Golden State can obviously score at a high rate and the Nuggets won’t be able to keep up.
NBA Prediction: Golden State Warriors -8.5
