Statement Wins for Nuggets

The Nuggets have been going about their business in fine style, including a recent win over the Boston Celtics at TD Garden.

Beating the Celtics at home was seemingly impossible, but the Nuggets are the defending NBA champions for a reason.

They are built tough, and despite being third in their division with NBA standings, they’re only a half-game behind the Timberwolves and Thunder.

We expect the Nuggets to continue producing the goods on the court, particularly Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray. They are a dynamic duo, and they have led the Nuggets to a 30-14 record.

Jokic has been going through an emotional rollercoaster with the passing of Dejan Milosevic.

“The last couple of days, just been supporting him, comforting him, giving him a hug,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “Nikola went out there and he honored Dejan’s memory and his legacy, by playing at the level he played at. Not easy to do with a heavy heart. But Nikola is a special person.”

The only negative for the Nuggets is their against the spread record. Those who back them on the NBA spread haven’t enjoyed much success, but that could all change over the coming weeks.

Pacers Needing Home Court

After playing their last five games on the road, going 1-4, the Pacers should be happy to return to Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

Having suffered losses to the likes of Denver, Utah, Portland, and Phoenix, they need to get back to their winning ways, otherwise, they’ll lose touch in the Central Division.

Denver vs Indiana NBA odds have the Pacers at +3, which is a fair line given their form. We think they’re getting plenty of respect mostly because they’re at home.

Had this game been in Denver, the Pacers would have been around +7, but they are 13-8 at home.

They have a much better ATS record than the Nuggets, so bettors have cashed in with the Pacers. They have featured in many NBA predictions and rightfully so.

Indiana is a quality team on its day, and if players like Tyrese Haliburton and Miles Turner are anywhere near their best, it should be competitive against the Nuggets.

Class with Denver

We can’t turn down the value odds with the Nuggets, who are clearly the better team.

Despite having a poor ATS record, they aren’t often only favored by three points, so bettors get a generous line with Denver vs Indiana NBA odds.

Look for Jokic or Murray to have a big game, which will put pressure on the Pacers’ scorers because their defense isn’t up to scratch.

We’re also including under 242.5. That’s a big total, and although the Pacers defense is suspect, we expect a tighter contest, similar to the first meeting where only 226 points were scored.
