The Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Clippers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Nuggets last 8 games following a ATS win. The under is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall. The Nuggets are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles.
I don't trust the Los Angeles Clippers as much as the next guy, but they're at home here, and this line tells me oddsmakers think Jokic won't play due to a wrist injury. Assuming that's the case and the Clippers are at least rolling out Kawhi Leonard, I'll lay the bucket with the home team. However, if Jokic plays, we then have to turn our attention to the Nuggets. Check the injury report before betting.
