NBA Betting Trends
The Wizards are 5-1-1 ATS in the their last seven road games. Washington is 0-5 ATS in its last five Tuesday games.
The Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. Denver is 1-3-1 ATS in its last five games versus the Southeast Divison.
Washington is strong offensively, but plays little defense and in the thin air of Denver that is not going to fly against a squad that is strong on both ends of the floor. I see a blowout in the cards here. The Nuggets are playing fantastic basketball right now and I see it continuing tonight.
