Denver Nuggets are playing at home after an impressive win vs the Nets (124-104) in the last home game While the Knicks continue their 5 road stand games after losing to the Jazz (104-113) and Lakers (115-122).

Knicks are having their worst run this season as they are 2-8 SU last 10 games and 4-6 ATS. They will play in a back to back after they lost to the Jazz today by 9 points.

Knicks lost last 7 games as an underdogs covering only 2 games in those 7 games and they are 2-8 ATS as Road underdogs and O/U 6-3-1 in last 10 games While the Nuggets are O/U 8-2 in last 10 home games and 8-2 as favourites last 10. So the Over might be a good look too But i prefer the Nuggets spread more.

Injury Report

Michael Porter Jr. , Jamal Murray still out for the Nuggets while Austin Rivers is doubtful. 

For the Knicks Derrick Rose is still out while Kemba Walker, Quentin Grimes are doubtful


Head to Head

The Nuggets have dominated the Knicks in the recent years as they are 9-1 straight up and 7-3 ATS in last 10 games vs the Knicks averaging 117 points vs only 104 to the Knicks. I think this trend will continue Tomorrow as i can see a double digit win for the Nuggets. Nuggest are playing on a one day rest too while the Knicks are on back to back road games which advantages the Nuggets.


Expected Line Ups

Nuggets: N.Jokic - W.Barton - A.Gordon - M.Morris - J,Green

Knicks: J.Randle - R.Barrett - M.Robinson - E.Fournier - A.Burks



Jokic should be able to dominate this game vs a bad Knicks team that doesn't look like they will start playing good again till the trade deadline ends and see if they will trade Julius Randle or not after all the rumours. I think Nuggets are the better team and the rested team here and they will win by double digits.

Pick: Denver Nuggets -6.5 (-110)
