BEST ODDS TO BET ON:
- Underdogs: Grizzlies +3 (-110)
- Grizzlies vs Nuggets Over/Under: 232.5 points
The Nuggets (36-44 ATS) are 4-2 SU in their last six games but are 1-8 ATS in their last nine matches at home. The total has gone UNDER in five of Denver’s last seven outings against Memphis even as the Nuggets are 6-1 SU in their last seven contests when playing at home against the Grizzlies.
The Grizzlies (51-27-1 ATS) are 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 matches played in April and are 10-5 SU in their last 15 outings on the road even as the total has gone OVER in five of Memphis’ last six contests against an opponent in the Northwest Division. Memphis has won seven of its last eight games but the team is coming off a 115-121 loss to the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.
Denver has won five of its last eight games but it wasted a chance to grab an outright playoff berth after absorbing a 97-116 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday. The Nuggets will again rely on MVP candidate Nikola Jokic, who averages 27.0 points, 13.7 rebounds and 7.9 assists per game, along with forward Aaron Gordon (14.9 ppg, 5.9 rpg) and guard Will Barton (14.7 ppg, 4.8 rpg) to formalize their entry into the playoffs.
Final Predictions and Picks:
- Spread — 117 Denver Nuggets – 114 memphis Grizzlies
- Over/Under — OVER 232.5 points
