Nuggets vs Wizards Preview

Denver will travel to Washington on Wednesday for a battle versus the Wizards. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Wednesday’s game, check out our Wizards vs Nuggets preview below.

Nuggets Looking To Stay Hot

The Denver Nuggets are going to be coming into this one after a win against the Philadelphia 76ers. Considering the type of injuries that Denver has had to deal with this season, whenever you can beat another top team in the NBA, they have to be happy about that.

They were able to take care of business as they won 114-110. Nikola Jokic led the way with 22 points, 13 rebounds, and eight assists. Bones Hyland added 21 off the bench for Denver.

The Denver Nuggets are going to be coming in with the 11th rated net rating, the 10th rated offensive rating, and the 11th rated defensive rating.

Wizards Want To Bounce Back

The Washington Wizards have been one of the worst teams in basketball for the past few months and they’re going to be coming into this one losing four straight games. They are 3-7 in their last 10 games after losing to the Golden State Warriors on Monday.

In their most recent game against the Warriors, Kristaps Porzingis was able to lead the way with 25 points and eight rebounds. He hasn’t played much in Washington, but his minutes on the court have certainly been impressive.

On the season, Washington has the 23rd rated net rating, the 20th rated offensive rating, and the 25th rated defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks — Nuggets vs Wizards

For this game, I like the Denver Nuggets to cover the spread and for Nikola Jokic to have a triple-double. I would say that we should take Nikola Jokic to score over 25 plus points, but I think he’s going to be more of a facilitator tonight.

The Washington Wizards have the 25th rated defensive rating, but they have one of the better interior defenses in the NBA, meaning Jokic should rely on his teammates tonight.
