Los Angeles is the leader in the Western Conference at limiting opponent scoring, allowing 110.0 points while holding opponents to 46.1% shooting.

Denver are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.
Denver are 10-5 ATS in their last 15 games against LA Clippers.
Denver are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against LA Clippers.
Denver are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Denver's last 6 games when playing on the road against LA Clippers.
LA Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Clippers' last 5 games.
LA Clippers are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 12 of LA Clippers' last 16 games against Denver.
The Nuggets have won their last 4 games at home but they hit the road where they have a 10-10 record and have failed to cover the spread in 5 if the last 7 away. They'll be also playing without their All-Star and MVP candidate Nikola Jokic. The Clippers have lost 4 of their last 5 games but won their last game at home. The Nuggets are 1-2 this season and 12-19 all time playing without Jokic so it's hard to trust them on the road without him. I'm going with the Clippers at home.
