The Nuggets are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Warriors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Nuggets last 7 road games. The under is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 Monday games. The Nuggets are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Golden State and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, but they should be highly motivated after blowing a lead against the Celtics in historic fashion. The Golden State Warriors are still a tough team to figure out, as one night they're competing against a contender and the next night they're losing by 20 to a team that won't come close to the playoffs. I'm having a hard time getting behind these Warriors. Give me the Nuggets and the small chalk.
