The OVER has Been a Golden Nugget for Denver Bettors

Despite losing their two most impactful players, the Clippers keep trucking along and will enter their game against the Nuggets tonight winning seven of their last eight games. Currently sitting in a playoff spot, Denver has made a serious leap forward this year. That said, the Nuggets still have a lot of work to do at the defensive end and could have trouble stopping the sixth-best scoring offense at the Pepsi Center this evening.

SHARK BITES
  • The Clippers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against the Nuggets.
  • The Nuggets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in 11 of the Nuggets' last 12 games against teams with winning records.

A bet that probably has your sportsbook sitting with a mile-high balance if you’ve been backing it this year is the Nuggets’ OVER. They’ve cashed the O in nine-straight games and have an overall OVER/UNDER record of 30-10-1. Their game against the Clippers tonight is another candidate for the OVER as Denver has allowed the third-most points per game and is currently scoring at will with the likes of Will Barton and Jusuf Nurkic coming into their own at the offensive end.

With no Chris Paul or Blake Griffin, the Clippers will have to rely on guys like Auston Rivers and Luc Mbah a Moute and that doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. It’s not a stretch to think the Nuggets could win this game outright so a spread bet on the Colorado crew seems like a reasonable one.
