The Nuggets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. The Clippers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win. The over is 13-3 in Nuggets last 16 overall. The under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 overall. The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

This line makes no sense to me, given that the Los Angeles Clippers will be without the majority of their top players and now just lost PG13 for about a month or so. The Denver Nuggets have issues of their own they need to figure out, but they'll have the best player on the floor for this game, and the road team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between these two clubs. This line probably changes heading into the game, but I'll side with the Nuggets regardless of what it drops to.
