Are the Nuggets ready for the challenge vs Warriors?

The Denver Nuggets get their first true test this season when they welcome the Golden State Warriors to the Pepsi Center. The reigning champs look to be getting back to their winning ways and opened as 9-point road favorites.

SHARK BITES
  • Golden State is 21-4 SU in its last 25 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 15 of Golden State’s last 19 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in the last 5 games in this matchup.

Denver has been hit-or-miss to start the season. After acquiring Paul Millsap in the offseason, experts touted the Nuggets as another team in the Western Conference to make the proverbial “leap.” And like most teams who integrate new talent, it took a few games to find their groove. Now, the Nuggets are 4-1 SU in their last five. Despite their winning ways, the Nuggets make it tough for bettors who like to take the spread evidenced by their 3-6 ATS mark this season. Bettors should steer clear of a Denver upset for this game. The Nuggets are hovering around +325 on the moneyline to win outright.

The Warriors, on the other hand, keep on rolling and things are business as usual. After dropping two of their first three games, Golden State is 5-1 SU in the last six but is not blowing out teams like in years past. The Warriors are 3-6 ATS this season but the saving grace is they know how to get it done on the road. They’ve covered the spread in three consecutive road games and with the Dubs’ style of play, this game could turn into a landslide in a hurry.

Bettors looking for a score-fest need to look no further. The total opened at 228.5 and the trends point to the OVER. Golden State ranks first in the league, averaging 120 points per game and the OVER has hit in nine of the last 10 games in this matchup. Both teams also rank in the top five in three-point percentage.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The visiting Golden State Warriors betting line opened this morning as -7.5-point favorites in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at Odds Shark (including Bovada), while the total was hovering around 230 at BetOnline and other betting odds shops.
