Brooklyn Nets vs Denver Nuggets prediction

The Denver Nuggets are the better team here, obviously, they're starting to get healthier and they have the rest advantage. The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back and Denver is the worst place to play in these spots given the altitude. With that said, the Nets continue to win and cover numbers at an elite rate, and it's hard to turn down this many free points. The Nets are 16-5-1 ATS on the season, and at some point you keep backing them until the tickets stop cashing. Give me the Nets.
