Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 23.5 points and 4.8 rebounds, while Luguentz Dort is averaging 17.2 points and 4.2 rebounds.

The Thunder are 21-7 ATS in their last 28 road games and 21-10-4 ATS in their last 35 games overall. The Nuggets are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Thunder last 5 overall. The over is 9-2-1 in Nuggets last 12 home games. The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Denver and 4-13 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
This is a lot of points for a Denver Nuggets team that hasn't consistently blown teams out or even won games, but they're enjoying their best stretch of the season and are winning their last five games by an average of 13.2 points. The Oklahoma City Thunder have had covering success, especially on the road, but they're also no strangers to blowout losses, and they lose on the road by an average of 8.3 points. Big number and there are better options out there, but I'll lay the points with the Nuggets if forced to pick.
