New Orleans comes in with an 8-7 record and 9-6 ATS after a 125-116 home loss to the Raptors. Denver is 8-6 overall and 5-9 ATS following a 99-82 loss at the Trail Blazers. The Nuggets went 3-1 straight up and ATS in four meetings last season. The over-under went 2-2.

Bet on Pelicans vs. Nuggets

The thin air of Denver makes for a tough atmosphere for road teams, but no other team has the duo of Cousins and Davis on the interior. Lately, the Pelicans have taken their creativity in setting up offense with them to a whole new level. Look for New Orleans to set the tempo and keep the Nuggets off balance defensively. But let's not forget Denver has a high-octane offense as well. This game screams high-scoring.
