4* NBA *BEST BET* Blowout on Nuggets -12
Motivated by back-to-back losses, including an embarrassing 13-point home loss to New Orleans last game, expect the Nuggets to roll tonight.
The Nuggets have been one of the best investments in the NBA at 38-15-2 ATS in their last 55 games. They are 24-8-2 ATS in their last 34 games as a favorite, 22-6-1 ATS in their last 29 games vs. a team with a losing record and 20-6 ATS in their last 26 vs. the Eastern Conference. In addition, the Nuggets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a double-digit loss at home and 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite of 11.0 points or more. That's a 12-1 ATS angle I'll get behind any day of the week.
The Nets lost in Orlando by 16, in Cleveland by 16 and in Boston by 19. Denver plays great basketball at home, and I expect it to cover the number in this highly motivated spot.
