The Denver Nuggets will be on the road to take on the OKC Thunder on Sunday, January 9th.
The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from Payom Center.
Denver started off as a 6.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 7. The total has gone from 216 to 215.
The Nuggets have not lived up to their expectations so far this season. Yes, they can still get better as the year goes on, but I am not totally sure of that happening.
They have won three of their last five games. If they are on their game on Sunday, it should be four wins out of their last six.
Going into the season, a lot of folks were very high on this team and had them as a contender in the West. Simply put, they just have not played up to their capabilities.
I still feel that if they got in the playoffs, they could be a dangerous team. Right now, they are the 7 seed, but they could also drop to below that when the regular season is over.
Denver took care of Sacramento Kings on Friday by a score of 124-111. They did just what they had to do against a team that is not that great.
Nikola Jokic had 33 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists in the win on Friday. Once again, this guy is having another very impressive season with Denver.
Simply put, the Thunder are just not a very good team. It is not all that complicated.
Oklahoma City comes into this contest with a record of 13-25, which puts them in 14th place in the Eastern Conference. The only team below them are the Houston Rockets.
It is not very hard to figure out why this team is not having success. They just do not have the talent to compete with the good teams and in the NBA, you need talent to win.
These guys got crushed by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday by a score of 135-105. It was a game that got out of control for them pretty quickly.
The defense for this crew was just nonexistent in the loss to the Wolves. I get they are a good offense, but you cannot allow 130+ points to them.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Nuggets are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games against Oklahoma City.
- The Nuggets are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.
- The Thunder are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games when playing at home against Denver.
- The Thunder are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games this season.
Denver Nuggets vs. OKC Thunder NBA Analysis:
The Nuggets need to keep up their better play as of late when they head to the Paycom Center. It would be a killer to lose to a team such as the Thunder.
If Denver is on their game, they really should be able to make this game rather uncompetitive. At the very least, they should win the ball game.
I am curious to see how the Thunder play in this one after having a terrible loss on Friday. Will they make some adjustments or will they be just as bad?
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets ATS
At this point, I just have very little confidence in the Thunder. Besides SGA, they do not have many scoring options and I think that will be an issue for them on Sunday.
Denver has been very good against the spread when going against the Thunder lately and I think that will keep up in this ball game. OKC is a beaten team and I just think they are going to have a hard time slowing down the Nuggets.
