Nuggets vs. Clippers Best Bets

Nuggets +1 (-110 DraftKings)

Denver has been dominant in their last three contests, scoring 123 points per game, with a league-high 60.6% effective field goal percentage and 42.3% from the three. Meanwhile, the Clippers’ effective field goal percentage is at 48.2% over their last three games (second-worst) and they’re averaging just 112 points per tilt in that time frame.

The Nugs are 4-0 ATS in their last four games and should continue to produce tonight against a Clippers team that is most likely without Paul George. Take Denver to cover and possibly sprinkle a little on the moneyline.

Nuggets vs. Clippers Game Total Under 225 (-110 DraftKings)

The game total went under in the two prior meetings of these two squads this season, as the Nuggets held Los Angeles to an average of 97.5 points per contest. Both the Clippers and Denver sit in the lower half of the NBA in pace of play and are also only allowing some of the fewest points per game in the league in their last three games, respectively. The Nuggets have only yielded 104 points, while LA has surrendered just 113.7, with Denver giving up 113 and the Clippers allowing an average score of 110 on the entire season.

This matchup is set up for Denver’s defense to hold again and the under is the play tonight.
