Nuggets vs. Nets Prediction & Pick

Recent losses aside, Denver is still the better team. The Nuggets are a ridiculous 30-5 at home this year and are still 7-3 over their last 10 games overall, so it's not like they're in a slump. Nikola Jokic is still playing at an MVP level as well, helping Denver post the second-best offensive rating in the NBA.

Brooklyn, on the other hand, is a more pedestrian 19-17 on the road even after winning three of its last four away games. The Nets have also been playing mediocre basketball for the last two months now, going 11-16 since Jan. 10.

Brooklyn may make this game closer than expected, but Denver should ultimately prevail.

Final Score Prediction: Nuggets: 117 | Nets: 111

Nuggets vs. Nets Best Bet

While the Nuggets are the better team, asking them to win by double digits is a lot. Denver has been outscored by 24 points in its last three games, while Brooklyn has gone five straight games without losing by double digits. Expect the Nets to keep things relatively close and over the spread.

Bet: Brooklyn Nets +9 (-110)
