Denver Nuggets DFS Notes

Nikola Jokic put up 38 points, 19 rebounds, eight assists and one steal in Friday's loss to Minnesota. The Nuggets will not be happy about dropping this game to Minnesota as they are now just 2.0 games ahead of the 7th-seeded Wolves. On the bright side, the Nuggets actually have something to play for in the final week, so if you have Jokic on your fantasy roster you can plan on at least a few more unfair lines. Jokic came into Friday’s game as the No. 1 player in 9-cat for the season and for the past month when it mattered the most.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James (ankle) is questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup vs. the Nuggets. James played through an ankle injury in Friday night's loss to the Pelicans and put up great numbers. Unfourtnetly, he is still dealing with this issue going into Sunday's game. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on the Lakers' injury report leading up to tipoff.

Nuggets vs. Lakers NBA Betting Prediction

The Nuggets are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games in L.A., are 1-4 against the number in their last five games as a favorite and are 3-7 at the window in their last 10 games after allowing more than 125 points in their previous game. The Lakers, meanwhile, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games playing on one day of rest, are 3-1-1 against the number in their last five games as a home dog and have covered in four of their last five games when facing an opponent with a winning record.
