Pick #1 – Brooklyn Nets at Denver Nuggets
This is pretty much a meaningless game for both teams. While it might not look like much on paper as the woeful Brooklyn Nets who hold a 4-6 record over their last 10 game stretch take on the Denver Nuggets who hold the same unimpressive 4-6 record over there last 10 its a great position to be in for a bet. These teams are playing some extremely high scoring ball as of late and Brooklyn (17-44) and Denver (24-37) should give us a nice run up of the score as both teams play uninspired defense. Each team has injuries to key players so this is also a great chance for some of the backups and young guys to really showcase there skills which usually leads to more scoring. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Jarrett Jack are the hurting Nets while Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari are riding the injury pine for Denver. The Nets and Nuggets have both been playing questionable defense as of late so the hoops should be falling tonight without issue. Breaking down these two NBA teams over the last 10 heads up scenarios the over/under is 5-5 so these teams rarely favor a side and our very situation specific. The good news is that this game is putting us in a very favorable position if we look deeper into more recent events and the most current stats. The total has gone OVER in 5 of Denver's last 7 games including going OVER in 4 of Denver's last 5 games at home. Its gets better. The total has gone OVER in 12 of Brooklyn's last 18 games. The trends are clear here and offense seems to be the focus as the offensive and defensive last 10 game averages of 205.7 and 210.1 show a nice potential peak on the high side. The point spread for this NBA over/under begin at 209 and has moved 1 point down which is not too telling either way. When these two teams met less then a month ago the score was 104 – 105 so these two teams should have no problem getting us to the number we need to be at. Despite the over/under moving down a notch we are still seeing a super strong 63% consensus so the line movement may not be as telling as it is normally. The Nuggets need to pick up the win by -5.5 so they should showing up and showing off for the home crowd. Lets follow the analysis and trust read here and take the OVER 208.
