Nuggets at Warriors picks and predictions

Prediction

Warriors 116, Nuggets 113

Moneyline

BET WARRIORS (-104).

It is hard to get the best of a team 4 times in a season, especially when both teams are playoff-caliber sides. The Warriors have been on fire as of late and have home wins over the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns over their last 4 at Chase Center. They have won 8 of their last 9 and 10 of their last 12.

The Nuggets have dropped 2 of their last 3 road games, losing to the Sacramento Kings and Milwaukee Bucks before the All-Star break. Denver could be short its 2nd-leading scorer in Murray as well.

Considering how well Golden State has been playing, take WARRIORS (-104).

Against the spread

PASS.

The moneyline gives the better value here, and it is the preferred play.

Over/Under

LEAN UNDER 230.5 (-110).

Neither team likes to push the pace at a high rate. The Warriors sit 12th in pace, while the Nuggets are 27th. Denver has gone Under in 4 of its last 7, scoring fewer than 100 in 2 of its last 4.

The Warriors’ success recently has been on the defensive end, going Under in 7 of their last 9 games, allowing 110 or fewer in 6 of their last 9. The total is 1-2 O/U in 3 meetings this season as well.

Take UNDER 230.5 (-110).
