Nets vs Nuggets Prop Bets Today

1. Monte Morris - Points: Over 13.5 (-102)

Injuries have caused Monte Morris to take on a much bigger role for this Nuggets team. He is playing in a career-high 30.0 minutes a night and it is starting to pay off. The former Iowa State standout has poured in at least 15 points in three of his last four games and is shooting 62.5% from the floor during that span. Morris has a great opportunity to keep scoring the ball against a Brooklyn defense that is allowing the fourth-most points to opposing point guards in the NBA this season (23.93). The 26-year-old has shown he isn't afraid to shoot the ball, so keep trusting him today.

2. Nikola Jokic - Made Threes: Over 1.5 (+106)

Placing this bet at plus odds seems like a steal. Nikola Jokic is playing at an MVP level and is starting to heat up from beyond the arc as well. In fact, he has nailed at least 2 three-pointers in five of his last six games despite only averaging 4.5 three-point attempts during that span. There's no doubt that the Nets excel at defending the perimeter this season. However, they are allowing an opponent three-point shooting percentage of 37.8% over their last three contests. Jokic loves to put on a show in front of his home crowd, which makes this bet worth a shot against Brooklyn.

3. First Half Total Points: Over 117 (-108)

This is a matchup between two teams that love to come out firing at the beginning of games. Both the Nuggets (57.6) and Nets (57.4) rank amongst the top 3 NBA teams in first half points scored per game. It shouldn't be surprising to hear that the over has hit in 13 of Denver's 22 home games this season. Meanwhile, the over has also hit in 17 of the Nets' 26 away games. Neither of these teams boast and amazing defense by any means and rely on their offensive abilities to get the job done. That makes betting the over here a smart idea.
