Phoenix Suns vs. Denver Nuggets

Our Betting Pick for Today

Betting on the game! Nuggets +7

Last week, the Nuggets could not contain Kevin Durant who scored 30 points on 11-for-15 shooting from the field in their 100-93 victory against Denver. Playing without Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr., they were utterly outclassed by the Suns. While Jokic and Porter will return this time around, Murray's eventual absence would be a devastating blow for the Nuggets.

I expect a fierce battle between the Suns and Nuggets, with Kevin Durant and Devin Booker leading the charge. Denver may boast an excellent offensive team (4th in NBA in adjusted offensive efficiency), but they don't have enough firepower to slow down Phoenix's offense. Phoenix ranks 14th in league-adjusted offensive efficiency - however, this is a much different team with Durant in the lineup.

Still seven points is a lot to give Denver.

Over Under Suns vs Nuggets (227)

Bet the over in this one.

If the previous two games are any indication, I will bet the over on the 227.
