Nuggets vs Suns Prediction & Pick

The Nuggets' life will be hard tonight as they'll likely be without a handful of key players. Nikola Jokic (calf), Jamal Murray (thumb) and Zeke Nnaji (knee) are all questionable for tonight's game. While Jokic did play against the Rockets, he was hardly at 100%, as proven by his only playing 25 minutes. If he does suit up again, it'll likely be on a limited basis.

Meanwhile, momentum is on the Suns' side due to their winning streak. In fact, one of those six victories came in a 100-93 win over the Nuggets last Friday. Even though Denver was without Jokic that night, his hobbling presence won't be enough to make the difference tonight.

Everything is going right for the Suns at the moment. Kevin Durant is finally while the likes of Booker and Deandre Ayton are playing well. The team has also played well on defense, allowing just a 102.2 PPG clip over the last six games. Considering that the Nuggets have been held to 103 or fewer points in three of their last four games, the Suns are in a great spot to get the job done.

Final Score Prediction: Suns: 114 | Nuggets: 105

Nuggets vs Suns Best Bet

After losing to the lowly Rockets by 21 points, I don't see the Nuggets making this a close game. Besides, they're 3-7 ATS in their last 10 matchups against the Suns, who've covered the spread in five of their last six outings. On top of that, Phoenix is also a solid 4-1 ATS in its last five Western Conference tilts.

Having outscored the Nuggets by an average of 13.2 points in their last five clashes at Footprint Center, back the Suns to cover as 7.5-point favorites tonight.

Bet: Suns -7.5 (-108)
