Nuggets vs Warriors Prediction | NBA Picks

Moreover, prior to placing a bet, compare the teams’ betting records. Denver is 22-11 as a favorite, 10-14 as an underdog and 15-16 ATS away, whereas Golden State is 36-10 as a favorite, 6-6 as an underdog and 17-12-2 ATS at home. The Warriors have had a couple of hiccups over their past five games, but their only surprising loss was against the Knicks last Thursday. Both the Jazz and Clippers are playoff contenders in the Western Conference.

Entering tonight’s rematch, Golden State is a 5.5-point favorite at home. Denver won a low-scoring contest against them back in December. Nonetheless, Klay Thompson missed the game because he was still recovering from his ACL injury. Therefore, pick the Warriors to win, the Nuggets will cover the spread and the total will go under 224.
