Suns at Nuggets picks and predictions

Prediction

Nuggets 123, Suns 108

Moneyline

The Suns won on the road Tuesday, but are 7-14 on the road this season and have lost 5 of their last 7 road games.

The Nuggets are 3-0 on their current homestand. They are 17-3 at home and have won 11 straight at Ball Arena.

However, you should not be wagering 9 times what you can win PASS on the moneyline.

Against the spread

Five of the Suns’ last 9 losses have been by at least 13 points while the Nuggets have won 3 straight games by at least 13 points and 5 of their last 8 wins have been by at least that much.

With the Suns extremely shorthanded and coming off a game Tuesday night BET NUGGETS -13.5 (-105).

Over/Under

The Nuggets have had 7 straight games and 8 of their last 9 have more than 227 total points. They have scored at least 120 points themselves in 6 of their last 7 games and in 8 of their last 10.

Before the Suns’ 125-point outburst on Tuesday, they had averaged 95.5 over their six-game losing streak.

Denver’s opponents have scored 108 or more in 6 of their last 7 games.

BET OVER 227.5 (-110).
