Both teams are in back-to-back NBA betting situations as the Clippers are at the Lakers tomorrow while Denver is at Minnesota. Let’s look at this matchup between the Clippers and Nuggets.
NBA betting trends substantially favor the Nuggets in this game. Denver has won 8 of the last 10 games against the Clippers and they are 7-3 against the NBA odds. The Nuggets have won the last four games against the Clippers at home and they are 3-1 against the NBA odds in those matchups. The teams have played three times already this season and the Nuggets have won all three games as basketball betting results tell us. They are also 2-1 against the basketball betting number in those contests. The teams played last month in Denver and the Nuggets won 107-94 and they just barely covered the 12.5 point NBA betting line.
The Clippers haven’t done much right this season either straight up or against the NBA betting odds. That is somewhat surprising considering Los Angeles does have talent. The starting lineup of Baron Davis, Al Thornton, Zach Randolph, Marcus Camby and rookie Eric Gordon really looks pretty good. For some reason though the Clippers struggle on almost a nightly basis on offense and on defense as the NBA betting stats show.
Denver has been solid this season at home versus the basketball betting pointspread. Their offense is potent, ranking in the Top 10 in the league as NBA betting numbers indicate. Their defense is below average but most of the time they get enough points to make up for it in terms of NBA betting. Carmelo Anthony leads the team in scoring as NBA betting stats show. Many gamblers are going to be looking to the Nuggets in this game against the Clippers and hoping that Los Angeles doesn’t get a backdoor cover.
Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting total. At Denver, the over/under is 2-2 in the last four contests as basketball betting numbers show. The total might go over tonight considering neither of these teams is playing much defense late in the season.
