The Denver Nuggets travel to the FedExForum to take on the shorthanded Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night.

Denver Nuggets Betting Preview

The Denver Nuggets will be aiming for a second straight victory to start the season after making light work of the Lakers in a 119-107 home win on Tuesday. Nikola Jokic led the way with a monster triple-double of 29 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, Jamal Murray added 21 points with six assists while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope chipped in with 20 points on eight of 12 shooting. As a team, the Nuggets shot a healthy 52 percent from the field and 14 of 34 from the 3-point line, but this win was set up with their defense as they were always in control after holding the Lakers to just 20 points in the first quarter.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting Preview

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies will be hoping to bounce back in this one after falling short to Pelicans in a 111-104 loss on Wednesday. Desmond Bane led the team with 31 points, five rebounds and five assists, Tillman Sr and Marcus Smart each scored 17 points, but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Grizzlies shot just 41 percent from the field and 12 of 43 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense early and were always in trouble after getting outscored by 32-19 in the second quarter. Jaren Jackson Jr. had a rough night as he scored just eight points on two of nine shooting as he battled foul trouble.

Peter's Pick

The Grizzlies were always going to be doing it tough with so many key players out, but they would've taken plenty of confidence from their narrow loss to the Pelicans. However, the Nuggets had to deal with the distractions of a ring ceremony and having their banner raised, but they were still good enough to get it done with ease against the Lakers in their season opener. The Nuggets looked impressive in their win on opening night and I think they can keep it going with another win and cover in this spot against this depleted Grizzlies outfit.

Peter’s Pick Denver -4.5
