Knicks vs Nuggets prediction

The Denver Nuggets are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, where they're 27-6 SU. The Nuggets are also playing their best ball of the season, with wins in 8 of their last 10 games. Still, the Knicks as an underdog is attractive as they play hard, and they have a punchers chance every night with Brunson leading the way. The Knicks beat the Nuggets by 38 points back in January, and they've won 3 straight games against Denver overall. The Knicks have also outright won their last 3 games as an underdog. I'll take a stab with the Knicks and the points.
