Basketball betting favors the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday as they host the Golden State Warriors.
It should be an inspired Denver team on Tuesday since they are coming off a shocking home loss in NBA betting to Minnesota on Sunday.
Basketball betting has Denver in a very good situation. They are rested while Golden State was home last night vs. Indiana. Denver had won 17 straight at home before laying an egg against Minnesota. The NBA betting win by the Timberwolves was shocking since Minnesota had lost 15 straight. “We got exactly what we deserved,” Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin said. “A team ain’t going to stop playing because they lost 15 straight. They’re a professional basketball team and they’ve got pride. We got exactly what we deserved. Nothing more, nothing less.”
The Nuggets have been getting by lately against inferior teams even though they haven’t played well. It caught up to them on Sunday in basketball betting. “A team that we should beat, we’ve got to beat ’em,” said guard Chauncey Billups, “That’s our fault in this locker room. It’s my fault for not stepping up and leading enough at the start of that third quarter. All the leaders on this team, we’ve got to take accountability for what happened in this game.” The Nuggets led 64-50 at the half and looked to be well on their way but Denver let up and let Minnesota back into the game.
Golden State has done pretty well in basketball betting on the road of late. They are 5-1 in NBA betting in their last 6 road games. They have also done well on no rest as they are 4-1 vs. the basketball betting pointspread in their last 5 games playing on no rest. The Warriors are 3-8 in basketball betting in the last 11 meetings at Denver
Even though they lost on Sunday at home, the Nuggets are 13-5 against the basketball betting odds in their last 18 home games. They also do well against the Western Conference as they are 35-17 in basketball betting in their last 52 games.
The basketball betting total trends show that 7 of the last 9 Golden State games against the Northwest have gone under. Seven of the last nine Denver games against the Pacific have gone under the basketball betting line.
Denver has won 7 of the last 10 against Golden State and they are 6-4 against the NBA betting odds. The Nuggets have won five of the last six at home against Golden State and they are 5-1 against the basketball betting lines in those games.
