Why Denver Nuggets are a good bet ATS?

The Nuggets are one of the top teams in the NBA. Center Nikola Jokic has turned into one of the best players at his position. That, more than anything else, is why Denver’s so difficult to beat.Jokic averages 20.2 points, 7.7 assists, and 10.5 boards per. He’s a matchup nightmare because he’s such a talented passer that if opponents double him on the blocks, he’ll find the open shooter. Not doubling Jokic leads to big time slam dunks. Jokic and the rest of the Nuggets should dominate for an easy win and cover on Wednesday night.

Nuggets vs Nets Final NBA Analysis

Denver and Brooklyn battled way back in early November. The Nets upset Denver 112-110. Brooklyn played Jokic a specific way that could lead to another upset victory on Feb. 6.The Nets allowed Jokic to get his points and rebounds. Nikola scored 37 and grabbed 21 boards. But, the Nets won every other battle on the court. They especially won the point guard battle where former Ohio State star De’Angelo Russell had 23 points and outplayed Denver starters Gary Harris and Jamal Murray.The Nets won’t be favored in this matchup. However, they tend to step it up against Western Conference foes, have a decided advantage at the PG position, and battle Jokic after he must deal with Andre Drummond at Detroit on Feb. 4. Nets are the play against the spread.NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn Nets ATS
