Suns vs Nuggets prediction

I considered grabbing the points with the Suns, especially after they beat the Nuggets earlier this month in overtime. However, this line is telling me the Suns injury report is probably worse off. The Suns have a questionable Beal and Nurkic while the Nuggets have a questionable Gordon and Murray. The fact this line is 7 points tells me which side is likely going to be missing guys. Big game for both teams as the Suns are fighting to stay out of the play-in tournament and the Nuggets are looking at the top seed in the West. Check the injury report before betting. I'll still lean Nuggets and the chalk because they're at home, where they're 29-6 SU.
