Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?

The Warriors are in a slump right now. The team picked up its first four-game losing stream of the season. Although this might be an indication of Steve Kerr saving his core players weeks before the postseason, the Warriors still need some momentum before entering the next stage of the season.

Golden State produced incredible stats in its last 64 games. On the offensive end, the team retains top-ten scoring statistics. The Warriors average 111.0 points per game on 46.8% shooting (sixth). The Nuggets have to be on their toes. Steph Curry and company combined to shoot 55.1% from the field (second). The team also has some of the best passing in the game with an average of 27.2 assists (third) per game.

The team’s defense is just as good as their offense. Defensively, the Warriors limit opponents to 104.6 points (fifth) per game on 50.8% from the field (third). This is supported by incredible stats that keep teams to 50.8% two-point and 33.9% three-point shooting.

What keeps the Nuggets’ hopes high is the fact that most of the Warriors’ core players are on the injury report. The list features Stephen Curry (hand), Gary Payton II (knee), Klay Thompson (injury management), and Andrew Wiggins (foot).

Why Bet on the Denver Nuggets?

The Nuggets had their fair share of ups and downs into the season. Nevertheless, the team won eight of its last ten games and now holds the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference. A win here keeps the hosts out of the Play-In Tournament and secures a surefire playoff spot. Having a healthier lineup with Nikola Jokic leading the charge keeps the Nuggets in the game as well.

Let’s take a look at Denver’s stats in 64 games played. Offensively, the Nuggets average 110.5 points (13th) per game on 47.4% shooting (third). The team is neck and neck with the Warriors when shooting from the mid and short-range. They record a 56.2% two-point shooting (second) and an even more impressive 35.4% from downtown (11th). On top of all that, the Nuggets match the Warriors in assists per game. We anticipate quality ball movement coming from both sides on Monday night.

Checking out how the Nuggets do on defense, the team is up there with the best. Denver keeps teams to 107.7 points (12th) per game on 46.5% shooting (22nd). They shine when defending the arc and limit opponents to 33.6% three-point shooting (second). Having Jokic on their side also means lots of rebounding presence. As a team, the Nuggets average 35.0 defensive boards (ninth) per game.

Warriors vs. Nuggets Expert Betting Prediction

The Warriors are eager to snatch a win against the Nuggets this season. They have two games left to even things out, and it’s going to be tough for the Dubs. The visitors have the advantage on paper and are the favorites coming into the game. However, the Nuggets proved earlier that they can take on the Warriors even at their best. Covering the spread shouldn’t be much of a problem for the side. Having homecourt advantage and injuries troubling the Dubs gives the Nuggets a clearer path to victory as well. Ultimately, this matchup might go down the wire.
