Nikola Jokic is averaging 26.3 points and 11 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 21.3 points and 4.8 assists.

The Pistons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 0 days rest. The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Pistons last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Nuggets last 7 home games. The Pistons are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Denver Nuggets should win this game comfortably on paper, but they're just 10-14 against the spread at home and 1-4 against the spread as double-digit favorites. We also just saw the Nuggets struggle on Sunday against the Magic where they were getting the breaks beat off them until the second half. The Detroit Pistons have also covered seven of their last nine games on the end of back to backs. This is a lot of points to turn down. I'll take a shot with the Pistons.
