The Raptors are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games. The under is 5-0 in Raptors last 5 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Nuggets last 8 overall. The Raptors are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Denver and 7-22 ATS in the last 29 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors are coming off a big, tough fought game against the Suns last night, and there's a potential letdown factor here. Denver is also the worst place for the end of a back to back. Speaking of Denver, the Nuggets appear to have flipped the switch over the last few weeks, winning 10 of their last 12 games, and they're winning their last five games by an average of five points with an improved offense. The Nuggets win in the favorite role by an average of 6.1 points. I'll lay the chalk with the home team.
