Denver Nuggets will meet New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday in Denver, that will be the fourth game between them after the Nuggets won the first 2 games and the Pelicans won the most recent one.

New Orleans Pelicans are the hottest team in the NBA right now blowing out the Lakers, Jazz, Suns and Kings last 4 games after the All Star break, We had the Pelicans last game against the Jazz and also against the Lakers and we got to go with them here again as they are a bet on team now, we will ride the Pelicans wave again till it fails.

Denver Nuggets coming off a win over Houston Rockets by 15 points in a game that Nikola Jokic didn't play but they still won comfortably even without him, Nuggets have been hot lately winning 7 of last 8 games, Jokic is questionable here but he should be good to go, also Z.Nnaji and A.Rivers are also questionable for this game.

New Orleans are 4-1 ATS and Straight up in their last 5 games, Pelicans are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against Denver even though they are 1-4 Straight up against them last 5 games, New Orleans are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games on the road! The O/U is 4-12 last 16 games for the Pelicans this season.

Denver Nuggets are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games, and they are 7-1 Straight up last 8 games, The total has gone Under in 4 of Denver's last 5 games against an opponent in the Southwest Division also the Under has hit 7 of last 8 games against the Pelicans.

Head to Head

Last 10 games are split between both teams with each of them winning 5 games but New Orleans are 6-4 ATS in those 10 games, the O/U is 2-8 so the Under have been the trend in this matchup last few years with the Pelicans averaging 112.5 points and the Nuggets averaging 110.8 points.


New Orleans Pelicans have been the hottest team in the NBA last few games with wins over the Jazz, Lakers, Kings and the Suns and the fact that all of these were blowout wins is even more impressive, Pelicans have covered last 8 road games so I like the Pelicans to keep it going here and get it done here.

Pick: New Orleans Pelicans +3 (-110)
