    Nuggets. at Pelicans. picks and predictions


    Nuggets. 114, Pelicans. 109


    NUGGETS (-115) is where I’d lean even if Jokic is out again. The Nuggets. have shown they are one of the deepest teams in the NBA and G CJ McCollum is shouldering a lot for the Pelicans. with Ingram and Williamson sidelined.

    Against the spread

    NUGGETS -1.5 (-105) is how I’d bet on the spread in this contest, though, I’d rather take the moneyline instead. However, this spread does appear to be created with the idea that Jokic will be inactive again.

    The Nuggets. are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road meetings with the Pelicans.. The Pelicans. are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record.


    UNDER 231.5 (-110) is an intriguing bet in this matchup. regardless of Jokic. While the Pelicans. are 12th in pace, the Nuggets. play at the 10th slowest pace in the NBA this season.
