(535) Denver vs. Charlotte (536)
PICK: williamhill @ -9 DEN (-115)
DATE: March 5, 2020 - 7:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Al McMordie
EVALUATION: Loss (-1150) - Final Score CHA 112 at DEN 114
At 7:05 pm, our selection is on the Denver Nuggets minus the points over Charlotte. The Hornets come into this game on a 4-game point spread win streak, but tonight's game is an example of facing the wrong opponent at the wrong time. The Nuggets were favored by 16 points over Golden State on Tuesday, but actually lost by 16, 116-100. After the game, Denver's All-Star center, Nikola Jokic said, "it happens." Well, it hasn't happened very often. Since 1990, it was just the fourth time that an NBA team lost by more than 15 points after being favored by more than 15. We'll take the Nuggets to bounce back off that embarrassing defeat, as they're 12-7 ATS on the road off an upset home loss. Even better: Charlotte's a wallet-busting 1-14 ATS at home off 4 point spread wins. Take the Nuggets to rebound on Thursday, and blow out Charlotte. 10* PLAY. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
