Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

The Denver Nuggets and points are attractive, and I wouldn't be mad if that's the direction you lean based on the value of rarely getting them in these spots. However, the Thunder are a team I'm not steeping in front of as they're 30-17 ATS on the season, the best covering team in the NBA. The Thunder are also 17-6 SU at home and smoked the Nuggets last month on the road by a score of 119-93. Statement game for the young Thunder. Give me OKC and the small number.
