NBA Betting Predictions: Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets
Tonight the Golden State Warriors who have been having severe defensive struggles try to pick up a road win against a banged up and slumping Denver Nuggets team. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Nuggets as -255 favorite at home giving up 6 points via the spread against the Warriors.
The Denver Nuggets with slew of injuries including forward Danilo Gallinari with a left ankle injury and Corey Brewer are looking to avoid their longest slide in five years where they lost 5 in a row in 2006-2007. The Nuggets most recent home loss was a 105-95 defeat at the hands of the defending champion Dallas Mavericks.
The Nuggets can certainly put up points as four players put up 16+ points. PG Ty Lawson had the most impressive game for the Denver Nuggets with 16 points and 10 assists. However with so many injuries during this losing skid they are scoring 92.8 points per a game compared to their 103.7 average.
The Golden State Warriors are scoring lots of points but giving up even more during a 3-6 stretch where they have surrendered on average 102.8 points per a game. Tuesday they lost another 119-116 and three days prior it was a 114-106 overtime defeat at the hands of Sacramento Kings.
Golden State guard Monta Ellis must be heart broken after leading the game with 48 points against Okalahoma only to lose by three points. He had some help scoring as David Lee put up 25 points and 10 assists. Stephen Curry also had 16 points and 10 assists. However letting your opponents 52% from the floor and hit 11-26 three pointers at a 42% rate will spell doom for your team.
NBA Betting Prediction: The Denver Nuggets get what would look like a great opportunity to turn things around as they have deafeated the Golden State Warriors in 10 of the last 12 meetings while scoring 127.2 points. I like the Nuggets at home against a team they have dominated but I also like the Warriors at +6 as they have been keeping games close.
