Two teams trying to find their way back in to the win column meet as the Denver Nuggets get set to take on the Washington Wizards on Thursday.
Both teams currently sit below the .500 mark and sit in 11th place in their respective conferences.
This will mark the first meeting between the two this season. They last met on 1/25/15 in a 117-115 win for Washington on the road.
The Nuggets have just 5 wins in the month of January and will finish off the month with 3 games on the road and a back to back on Wednesday and here on Thursday.
Denver will be in Boston on Wednesday and then follow that up with this one in Washington as they try to dig themselves out of a big hole in the West. Currently they sit 3 games out of the 8 seed, but have Utah and Sacramento to jump before getting to Portland and that 8th spot.
The Nuggets have dropped 3 of their last 4 overall with their lone win coming against the Pistons. They’ve endured losses to Oklahoma City, Memphis, and Atlanta.
Denver has struggled on the road this season going just 8-13 overall. However, they’ve been a decent bet for backers as they have gone 12-8-1 ATS in those 21 games.
Washington has dropped 4 of their last 5 and that stretch involves a postponed game as they just haven’t been to pick up any steam here.
Washington has scored just 91 and 89 points in their last 2 as they’ve conceded 116 and 106 points in those 2. Their most recent outing was a blowout from the beginning as they fell 106-89 to the Raptors.
During their last 4 losses, the defense has completely disappeared for them. The Wizards have allowed 119 points (Boston), 108 points (Portland), 116 points (Boston), and 106 points (Toronto).
Home court hasn’t been any sort of advantage for the Wizards this season either. Washington is just 10-14 SU and their defense doesn’t get any better either. They’ve allowed 104.5 points per game inside the Verizon Center.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Nuggets are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
- Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
- Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
- Wizards are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Thursday games.
- Wizards are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400.
- Wizards are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. NBA Northwest.
Free NBA Prediction:
Both teams are a mess and extremely bad on the defensive end. That bodes well for the over here.
The key will be if Washington can find some offense themselves. They’ve struggled lately to reach the 100 point plateau, but have had no problem conceding there.
