Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

The news on the injury front aren’t looking good for Phoenix here as they head into tonight’s game against the defending champions with both Bradley Beal and Jusuf Nurkic questionable to play. The potential absence of Nurkic could be devastating as without him the paint becomes wide open for the 2-time MVP Jokic to dominate. Phoenix hasn’t had the best of times vs Denver lately, they’ve covered the spread just 3 times in 11 meetings and have only 1 victory to show for in their last 6 visits to Ball Arena. A 3-game win streak ended abruptly in San Antonio of all places, as the Suns lost 104-102 on Monday to a Spurs team without Victor Wembanyama. Out of all the teams battling for the 4th seed in the West, Phoenix has the hardest remaining schedule.

Speaking of playoff seeing, the Nuggets have jumped back into the number one spot, which would give them home court advantage until the Finals (assuming they meet Boston there). This team is on a 4-game win streak and 9-1 SU over their last 10 games. Their last 2 games were against Portland and Memphis which means the starters got a break, none of them played more than 31 minutes vs the Grizzlies on Monday. As we get closer to the final couple of weeks of the regular season, the Nuggets have really dialed in on both ends of the floor. They rank 11th in defensive rating and 3rd in offensive rating over the last 10 games played, if they can capture the number one seed then Jokic might very well have a case for another MVP award.

Denver Nuggets Point Spread Prediction

Nuggets -6.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Like many other people, I was really disappointed with the Suns performance vs San Antonio the other day. Without their 3rd best player in Beal and their best rebounder in Nurkic, I’m afraid they cannot hope for a result here. I’ll take the Nuggets to cover at home.

Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets Total Points Prediction: Under 224.5

Under 224.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Both meetings so far this season have been a grind, the latest one played 20 days ago saw 224 points, but only after overtime. Coincidentally, we’re seeing exactly that number for tonight’s projected total, which is a good thing. Denver being the home team here, I think they’ll control the tempo which could mean another slow paced affair. In their last 10 games the Nuggets are averaging only 96.5 possessions per game, ranking just 18th in pace. The under has cashed in 4 of the Nuggets’ last 5 games vs Pacific division teams. They’re playing a team in the Suns that has gone under the total in 13 of 18 games, including 8 of 9 against Western Conference opponents. Only KD and Devin Booker scored in double-figures from the Suns starters in that embarrassing defeat vs San Antonio on Monday, that is really concerning before a game against one of the elite defenses in the NBA. With 2 of the 3 most recent meetings cashing on the under, I’ll take my chances with that bet once again here.
