The Nuggets are 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite, 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 0-4-2 ATS in their last 6 home games.

The under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Denver and 36-16 in the last 52 meetings.

The Los Angeles Clippers seem to have found their stroke offensively over the last week or so and have improved to 21-18 ATS on the season. The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back and are allowing 51.4 percent shooting in their last five games. The Nuggets also just lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers, which doesn't sit well with me. So while the Nuggets are red hot and will be out to make a statement at home, I have to side with the better and more rested team in the Clippers. You're not going to get these lines often this season with the Clippers. Take it while you can.
