The Denver Nuggets look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 115.3 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 109.8 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 26.1 points and 11 rebounds while Michael Porter Jr. is averaging 17.6 points and one assist.

The Grizzlies are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Nuggets are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 Monday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. The over is 7-1 in Grizzlies last 8 overall. The over is 8-1-1 in Nuggets last 10 Monday games. The Grizzlies are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Denver and 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies have played some of their best basketball on the road this season where they win by an average of 5.3 points and shoot 48.9 percent from the field. The Grizzlies also just beat up on the Bucks as big underdogs. The Denver Nuggets are still a good team and their home court advantage is one of the best in the league, but eventually that Jamal Murray injury has to impact them. The Grizzlies are 17-9 against the spread on the road, which includes covers in six of their last seven tries. Give me the points.
