Pick
6 DEN (-105) @ pinnacle

This is an 8* SUPER PLAY on the Nuggets.

Denver looked great in the first half of Game 1, but it got out to a slow start in the second, and it stumbled down the stretch.

Since Game 1 happened, Nuggets' star Nikola Jokic has won the league MVP. I think that matters here. I think that's going to help Jokic and the Nuggets rally here in Game 2 and at the very least, take this one right down to the wire.

Denver has recent histor on its side, as it took two of three both SU and ATS in the regular season series between the clubs.

After both double-digit losses in the Portland series, the Nuggets bounced back in the next game and won outright. The Suns have been playing well, but I can't see Denver being held to just six free throws again either, like it was in Game 1.

I think these teams are evenly matched, and I expect Mike Malone to make adjustments to make his team much more competitive.

While the outright is possible, let's grab the points.

The play is DENVER.

Good luck, NP

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.
