Raptors Aim for 12 in a Row vs Nuggets

The Toronto Raptors are the hottest team in the NBA and will be looking to extend their franchise best winning streak to 12 when they tangle with the Denver Nuggets in Colorado on Monday. Led by the dynamic backcourt duo of All-Stars Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, the Raps are 8-3 ATS during the streak but have failed to cover the spread in their last two matchups against New York and Detroit. With a win tonight, the Dinos can establish the longest winning streak in Toronto pro sports history.

Shark Bites
  • The Nuggets are 5-2 SU and 7-0 ATS in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Raptors' last nine games on the road.
  • The Raptors are 6-17 SU in their last 23 games against the Nuggets.

Despite floundering in the basement of the Western Conference, the Nuggets have quietly become a very solid bet as of late. Denver, who opened as 5-point underdogs, are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 affairs. Mike Malone’s crew are 25-21-2 ATS on the season when tabbed as dogs.

Here’s another trend that will appeal to Nuggets bettors: in the last eight matchups between these clubs, underdogs are 7-1 ATS. Denver (18-30 SU) won’t be competing for a playoff spot this season, but they are a team to watch when it comes to seeking underdog value over the second half of the NBA campaign.
