The Nuggets have struggled lately as they have been dealing with injuries but looks like they will be full healthy for this game. The Pelicans have lost 8 games in a row and they have been also dealing with injuries but CJ and Ingram are set to be back for this game so this a huge boost to their offense and I think they can keep this game close enough to cover the spread. Take the Pelicans.
