The New York Knicks are coming off a solid road win in Utah on Tuesday night after an embarrassing loss at home to the Oklahoma City Thunder that saw them surrender 145 points in regulation.

Denver, on the other hand, will be without their best player Nikola Jokic, who has entered the NBA's Health and Safety protocols. The Nuggets do come in as winners of five of their last six games.

Nuggets vs. Knicks Prediction & Pick

Denver remians one of the toughest places to play in the NBA. Of course you have a talented team and a loud fanbase, but the high altitude that comes along with playing in the Mile High City always makes things difficult for the road team. Sure, Denver will be without their best player in Jokic, but the Knicks are also on the second game of a back-to-back.

Denver 120 | Knicks 115

Nuggets vs. Knicks Best Bet

Despite this number dropping throughout the day, I think it's gone down enugh to like the over in this one. The two teams combine to average 232 points per game. Jokic's lack of presence down low should give the Knicks more easy opporunities in the paint and second-chance points. However, the Knicks coming off a game on Wednesday night, it would be understandable if they were a bit sluggish on the defensive end.

Bet: Over 226 points (-110)
