As can be seen, Denver last played Sunday losing a nail-biter 120-122 to the Nets while the Raptors have been off since Friday following a 112-122 loss to the Lakers as they finished the road trip 1-4.
The Nuggets are 36-31-1 overall against the spread this season. Also, they are 14-18 ATS as the away team. Another key point, the Raptors are 33-35 against the spread this season. Also, they are 19-14 ATS as the home team

Last week I pointed to a lack of urgency by the Nuggets noting it’s not easy to just flip the switch and get back the success they enjoyed the majority of the season.
Now Denver has a bigger issue as they’ve lost three in a row including two at home where they were 30-4 just a week ago. More concerning was Jamal Murray exited the last game in the second half experiencing knee soreness.
On the positive side, Denver possesses the best offense in the league highlighted by scoring 116.9 points per game ranking seventh. Denver is shooting the best field goal percentage of 50.8% and second-ranked perimeter efficiency of 38.9%.
To be sure, defensively the Nuggets are improving. So far, they allow opponents to score 113 points per game which ranks 13th while limiting foes to 48% from the field and 34.8% from deep ranking 23rd and fifth respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Jamal Murray, PG (questionable —knee soreness/rest)
- Reggie Jackson, PG (probable —oblique)
- Zeke Nnaji SF (OUT indefinitely—shoulder)
- Collin Gillespie PG (OUT indefinitely—leg fracture)
Coming back from the Western trip the Raptors are reeling feeling like the refs stole a game in Denver, and they coughed up two winnable games. Scottie Barnes and OG Anunoby had strong performances but Pascal Siakam in particular had a rough trip.
The only good news is they didn’t drop out of the play-in seeding because the teams surrounding them also lost or couldn’t string together a winning streak.
On offense, the Raptors score 112.4 points per game ranking 23rd while shooting 45.5% from the field and 33.7% from the perimeter ranking 28th and 27th respectively.
Meanwhile, defensively, the Raptors allow 112.2 points per game ranking seventh best with opponents shooting 49.2% from the field and 37.2% from deep ranking 28th and 29th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Otto Porter Jr., SF (OUT for season, — foot)

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
In Denver, Scott Foster ensured Denver would win just prior to their three-game slide so this game takes on greater precedence with both clubs desperate to win. Toronto has been off since Friday but is no doubt emotionally and physically drained from a brutal five-game trip.
If Murray is out that’ll benefit the Raptors but striking gold twice (limiting Jokic) is easier said than done.
That said, if the basketball gods live up to their reputation Denver will lead for 95% of the game and then in the final 1:15 a series of whistles, bad calls, and referee bias will result in a Raptors victory.
