The Nuggets are climbing in the Western Conference standings and they have another chance to add to their current hot streak with the hapless Pistons coming into town on Tuesday night.
Let’s take a deep dive into the different markets out there for Colorado sports bettors in our Nuggets vs. Pistons betting preview, complete with the best odds, picks, and predictions.
Nuggets vs. Pistons Betting Preview
The Nuggets are undefeated since trading for Aaron Gordon and we see no reason why they are going to slow down against the Pistons. The addition of Gordon has bolstered the roster in unexpected ways and it’s giving Nikola Jokic another offensive weapon to utilize.
As for the Pistons, they are the worst team in the Eastern Conference and have a barren roster around Jerami Grant. The former Nugget went to Detroit to take on a bigger role than he had in Denver. He’s putting up career-best numbers for his new team, but he’s not winning like he once was.

Bets We Like With A Nuggets Win
Jamal Murray Score First Basket (+600)
First made basket is one of our favorite props to bet on. Not necessarily because it’s a smart play, but because it’s the most exhilarating way to bet on the NBA. You can grab fantastic odds on Jamal Murray to notch the first field goal of the game on BetMGM Sportsbook.
With this kind of prop, everything in the first few seconds of the game is magnified. Oftentimes, whichever team loses the tip will lose out on this prop bet. We’re hoping the Nuggets can get the first possession of the game. If they run an action involving Nikola Jokic and Murray, we love the point guard’s chances to score.
Take Murray to hit on this player prop for a quick win.

Jerami Grant To Score 25+ Points (+200)
This is a great price to grab on Jerami Grant to score 25 or more points. He’s the first option for Detroit this season and although they are struggling, he’s showcasing his ability to score the basketball. If the Pistons are going to have any chance at beating the Nuggets, Grant will need to have a great game.

Nuggets vs. Pistons Prediction, Pick
The Nuggets were not able to cover a double-digit spread against the Magic the other night, but we expect that to change against the Pistons. Take Denver laying the points as they look to win their sixth game in a row and 16th of their last 19. This one is an easy pick.
Pick: Nuggets -12.5
