Nuggets vs. Warriors Pick

NBA Predictions: Is under right play when Nuggets meet Warriors? 12/23/17

Are the Denver Nuggets and host Golden State Warriors going to keep the score under the projected total tonight at 8:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, the Warriors are an 8-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is 221 points.

Denver enters with a 17-15 record and 14-17-1 ATS after a 102-85 win Friday night at the Trail Blazers. Golden State is 26-6 overall and 15-17 ATS following a 113-06 victory Friday night versus the Lakers, its 10th consecutive win. The Warriors won the first meeting this season in Denver by a count of 127-108 on Nov. 4. Golden State is 3-1 straight up and 2-2 ATS in four meetings since the start of last season. The over is 4-0.

Nikola Jokic tallied 27 points, nine rebounds and six assists in the victory at Portland. Wilson Chandler accounted for 21 points and 11 rebounds. Gary Harris added 17 points, three steals, two rebounds and two assists. The Nuggets led 52-41 at halftime.

Kevin Durant accounted for 33 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, four blocked shots and two steals in the win over Los Angeles. Jordan Bell had the best game of his rookie season with 20 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes. Klay Thompson added 16 points and two blocked shots. The Warriors led 61-44 at halftime, but blew the entirety of the lead and actually trailed briefly in the fourth quarter before rebounding for the win.

Denver is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The over is 24-8 in the last 32 meetings at Golden State.

Bet on Nuggets vs. Warriors 

These two squads are always playing high-scoring games against each other. But with the Nuggets having Jokic and Harris back in the lineup, it improves their defense considerably as shown in Portland. Both teams are on a back-to-back and the tired legs could lead to more errant shots than usual. We're due for an under in this series and I'm betting in that direction.
