Suns vs Nuggets ATS Pick: Nuggets -7½

This should be an exciting matchup for NBA odds. On the one hand, the Suns are at a disadvantage in the race for the sixth seed due to having a more challenging schedule, which made the loss to the Spurs so damaging. Furthermore, that loss also showed some of the issues with the Suns’ and why it is hard to back them right now.

In the loss to the Spurs, Devin Booker and Kevin Durant combined for 65 points. They also lost to a Spurs team without their best player, Victor Wembanyama, which only put a worse spin on a game the Suns had to win. To make matters even worse, Bradley Beal, who only had nine points in the loss, left the game early with an injury and is now a game-time-decision to face the Nuggets.

 

 

On the other hand, even with two starters (Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon) sitting out, the Nuggets dominated the Grizzlies. Nikola Jokić had 29 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists while not even playing in the fourth quarter. The Nuggets easily covered a 12½-point NBA spread.

While the Suns are talented and have star power, they have yet to show the consistency to be reliably backed in betting, especially against the best teams. Next, they are playing the best team in the West, on the road, only making this a tougher matchup for the Suns.

 

Suns vs Nuggets Over/Under Pick: Under 226½

The Suns will need to treat this game like a playoff matchup to have any hope of keeping it close. That could lead to a slower, more physical game. It is surprising that NBA lines have such a high over/under, especially as scoring has dropped since the All-Star break.

Also, even with the Suns’ two stars combining for 65 points in the last game, the team only scored 102. The Nuggets have a much better defense than the Spurs without Wembanyama, which could limit the Suns’ offense even more, again leaning this game toward the under.

 

 

Player Prop Pick: Devin Booker Over 26.5 points (-113)

There is no question that Booker is among the top scorers in the NBA. However, his consistency this season has been more up and down, possibly due to having another elite scorer on the team in Durant. Still, Booker has averaged 32.7 points over the last three games, scoring 30 or more in each. That shows Booker is ready for a hot scoring stretch, which should carry over into this game with the Nuggets.

Questions Of The Day

 

Do the Suns have a chance at the sixth seed?


Due to their inconsistencies, the Suns might need the sixth seed the most out of the three teams in the race. A one-and-done play-in game could pose real issues for them. However, because of their schedule, they might have the worst chance of getting the sixth seed.

Will the Nuggets finish with the best record in the Western Conference?


After some ups and downs this season, the defending NBA champions are playing amazingly well and should secure the No.1 seed in the West.
