The Los Angeles Clippers will get to host the Denver Nuggets as both these teams look to embark on the NBA season.
The Clippers opened up as 1 point favorites and the line is starting to drop to even while 65% of the public is backing the Nuggets.
The totaled opened up at 227 points and has remained unchanged.
The Denver Nuggets put together a 46-36 record a season ago and were on the outside looking in after an unfortunate loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The good thing is the Nuggets are young, talented, and they got a taste of what it takes to be a good team in the competitive West.
If PG Jamal Murray can take that next step, Isaiah Thomas gets healthy and they rely heavily on studs PF Paul Millsap and C Nikola Jokic, then they have a good shot at knocking down that playoff barrier.
Last season the Nuggets were elite at home going 31-10, but on the road they were a sub-par 15-26, while they went 37-42-3 ATS.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers were in the playoff hunt all the way to the end of the season, but after a sickening slump where they went 1-6 to finish the season, they missed out on the playoff.s
The Clippers lineup is very interesting as it goes PG Patrick Beverley, SG Avery Bradley, SF Danilo Gallinari, PF Tobias Harris, and C Marcin Gortat.
Not sure what to expect from this group, but this seems like a team that will have to play pass-first basketball and distribute to get efficient shots, and head coach Doc Rivers is the right coach for the job.
Last season the Clippers were pretty balanced as they went 22-19 at home and 20-21 on the road, while they went 42-40 ATS.
