Pick
-3 DEN (-109) @ Betamerica

I'm playing on DENVER. The Knicks have been on quite the run but I expect a trip to Denver to bring them back down to earth. The Nuggets hammered the Knicks (114-89) when the teams met at MSG. That's bad news for the Knicks as they're generally much better at home. They're 22-11 at home but just 15-17 on the road. The Nuggets are also stronger at home, as this has long been a tough venue to play at. The Nuggets are 19-12 on the road but 24-10 here at home. That includes a perfect 6-0 mark their last six games here. In fact, since late March, the Nuggets are 12-1 here and they're 15-2 here since mid-March. As I said, its a tough venue to play at. Making matters worse for the Knicks is that they're banged up at center. Robinson is out and Noel is questionable. I'll assume that Noel plays but even if he was 100%, which is unlikely, there's no stopping the MVP favorite. Jokic had a double-double in the first meeting and he's topped the 30 mark in b2b games. Look for Jokic to do his thing, the Nuggets staying hot at home, while covering the small number along the way.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
