NBA Free Picks, NBA Odds, NBA Predications
The Nuggets are taking on the Lakers in a late-night contest and the Nuggets being involved means the total has to be spoken about. There is no better team in the NBA than the Nuggets at hitting the OVER, now sitting at 14-5-1 on the season. You'd expect the total to inflate when this team plays, but that hasn't been the case so far, as 219 in this one is pretty modest. LA has been having a tough go at hitting the posted number but they may have to hit the gas when they take on Denver
If you're playing against the Nuggets, you're probably playing catchup so I have all the confidence that Denver can outpace LA and it'll force Lebron and his crew to score. Denver has hit the OVER in their last 5 of 6 and their offense currently ranks 4th in the league. LA's issue has been scoring, somehow with Lebron and AD, this team is only good enough for 16th in the NBA, but the good news is that Denver's defense ranks 17th overall. This is a win-win, Denver will score regardless and LA is playing a weak defense that they'll have to score on to keep up. 219 isn't a high total, especially for these two teams.
Prediction: Denver 115 Lakers 120
