Starting with three world championships in the last four years is Golden State a top bet on NBA choice in every game that they play. However, it is that very public popularity that offers gamblers little in the way of value. Sharps have long ago abandoned the Warriors. As a matter of fact, the best gamblers are often looking for a reason to bet against Golden State. More often than not oddsmakers sweeten the pot for the Warriors opponents to draw betting action their way. Once again that issue of value will loom large when the Denver Nuggets come calling.

Stats to Consider
On the whole the Nuggets Warriors matchup is one of the biggest of the entire regular season. Denver and Golden State are the two top teams in the Western Conference. In fact, the winner of this game will take the top seed of the Western Conference. While its no surprise that the Warriors top the leader board Denver is another story. Nobody expected much from the Nuggets this year.
Denver is playoff bound with a bet on NBA record of 51-24 straight up, 39-36 vs. the odds, and 31-43-1 under the total. Late on the Nuggets have struggled with only three covers in their last nine games. Seven of Denver’s last nine games have gone under the total. Overall the Nuggets rank 19th in the NBA for scoring offense and sixth for points allowed. All Star center Nikola Jokic is the difference maker for the Nuggets. Jokic averages 20.2 points, 7.4 assists, and 10.9 rebounds per game. Mark Malone is a top NBA Coach of the Year candidate.
Golden State Warriors
Concurrently Golden State continues to be a sportsbook drain. Just one payout in their last four games is a feeling of “more of the same.” Despite a record of 51-24 straight up the Warriors have gotten the money only 31 times. ORACLE Arena has offered no home court advantage. Golden State has gotten the cash in only 13 out of 37 home games. NBA metrics have Golden State ranked second for scoring offense but 16th for points allowed. Stephen Curry is pumping in 27.9 points per game. Also looming large is Kevin Durant with 26.8 points per outing.
Denver has covered just five of their last 13 games as a road dog. And they have gone under the total in six of their last seven as away pups. In the same way Golden State has covered only three of their last 13 games laying points at ORACLE Arena. Six of their last seven in that role have gone under the total. Head to head the Warriors have covered just one of their last seven laying points at home to Denver.
Matchup to Watch
Most important of all is the bet on NBA value that Denver will bring to this matchup. Indeed, the Nuggets are a proven profit taker at Golden State. On this occasion their defense should add value.
