Toronto Raptors vs Denver Nuggets prediction

The Denver Nuggets are 26-6 SU at home this season, and they've covered 7 of their last 9 games overall. The Toronto Raptors are losing games left and right, and they're one of the more banged up teams in the league. The Raptors will be without Barnes, and they could be without Brown, Barrett and Boucher. In fact, with this line being what it is, I expect the Raptors to be down several rotation players. Massive line, but the Nuggets at home are capable of blowout potential. A Raptors team without numerous key guys, it'shard to make a case for Toronto. Give me the Nuggets in a home beat down.
