NBA Betting Trends

Brooklyn

The Nets are 4-1 ATS in their last five games versus the Western Conference. Brooklyn is 4-10 ATS in its last 14 games overall.

Denver

The Nuggets are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games. Denver is 0-8 ATS in its last eight Thursday games.

Prediction:

This spread seems a little too wide for me. The Nuggets are a solid team, but have often played down to their competition this season and allowed the Hawks to beat them straight up on their home floor two nights ago. On paper, maybe this is a nice bounceback spot for Denver. But I'm going with a Nets squad that played Utah tough until a poor fourth quarter. The Nets go as Irving goes and he'll have Denver's weakest defender in the starting lineup, Murray, matched up against him. We saw what Trae Young did in that matchup a couple nights ago. I like Brooklyn and the points here.
