The Nuggets are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Pelicans are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 7-1 in Nuggets last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Pelicans last 5 Friday games. The Nuggets are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

The Denver Nuggets have been hit or miss for much of this season, but they're starting to get healthy and starting to string things together. The New Orleans Pelicans are playing subpar ball over the last week or so, and now Ingram is expected to be out due to an ankle injury. I don't like the Pelicans in this spot without their best player. Give me the Nuggets and the somewhat reasonable line.
