Wizards vs. Nuggets Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Nuggets cover spread vs. Wizards? 10/23/17

Are the host Denver Nuggets going to win by at least four points Monday night versus the Washington Wizards? Game time is 9PM EST.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Nuggets are listed as a 3.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 222.

Washington is 2-0 on the season after a 115-111 home win over the Detroit Pistons Saturday night. Denver is 1-1 following a 96-79 home win over the Sacramento Kings. The Wizards won both meetings last year and the over-under is 1-1.

In the Wizards' win over Detroit, Otto Porter Jr. tallied 28 points and nine rebounds. John Wall had a double-double of 26 points and 10 assists. Bradley Beal put in 25 points to go with four assists and four rebounds. The Wizards outscored the Pistons 33-16 in the third quarter to go up by 10 before holding off a late rally.

Denver received an 18-point effort from Paul Millsap in a balanced scoring effort to beat the Kings. Denver held Sacramento to 31-of-85 shooting from the floor and 8-of-23 from 3-point range. Kenneth Faried had 18 points and eight boards off the bench, while Gary Harris scored 17. After trailing 18-17 after one quarter, Denver outscored the Kings 25-16 in the second quarter to take control.

The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Denver.

Bet on Wizards vs. Nuggets

The Nuggets have one of the best built-in home-court advantages with the thin air of the Mile High City. On the court, Denver is also an improving product that has a shot at a lower playoff seed in the stacked Western Conference this season. Washington held off the Pistons the other day at home, but traveling and taking down Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets is probably too much to ask. Side with Denver here.
