Denver Nuggets have a 42-20 record (28-30-4 against the spread) and are sitting in the third place of the West. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Hornets with a 114-112 score, not beating the odds. Nikola Jokic leads the team in scoring with 20.7 ppg, in rebounding with 10.2 and in assists made with 6.8 per game. Jamal Murray follows with 18.7 ppg, 3.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Cavs won on the road with a 103-111 score. Cavaliers are 9-25 home, while the Nuggets are 18-12 on the road. Nuggets are better both offensively, scoring 110.8 ppg to Cavs’ 106.6 and defensively, allowing 107.6 ppg to Cavs’ 114.9. They also have better percentages both in field goals (47.1% to 45.6%) and in 3-pointers (35.6% to 35.1%). Both teams are very close in rebounding (44.5 to 44.2), while Nuggets are better both in turnovers committed (13.6 to 16.1) and in assists made (26.5 to 22.8). Bookmakers give the Nuggets a -8 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy win against an inferior Cavaliers squad.
