Nuggets vs Clippers prediction

The Nuggets are fighting for the top seed in the West, and the Clippers are hoping to lock up a top-4 seed. Big game for both the Clippers and Nuggets. The problem here is, the Clippers are without Kawhi Leonard due to a knee injury, and LAC just isn't as attractive without its best player. The Nuggets have also won 8 of the last 9 games against the Clippers. The Nuggets are just too consistent to bet against when the other team is missing major players. I'd need another point or two to consider the Clippers. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Nuggets on the road.
