Bets We Like With A Nuggets Win
Nikola Jokic Over 23.5 Points (-125)
The juice on this Nikola Jokic prop is a bit high, but we still love the idea of Jokic going off against the Spurs. Even though the Pistons didn’t put up much of a fight on Tuesday night, the Nuggets are still going to need Jokic to carry his team to a certain degree.
He has only gone over this number once in his last five games, but we don’t expect defenses to keep Jokic’s scoring down for very long. Go with the MVP frontrunner here.

Bets We Like With A Spurs Win
DeMar DeRozan Over 20.5 Points (-116)
We’re using the same logic here with DeMar DeRozan. If the Spurs are going to snap this current losing streak, they need their best and most experienced players to step up. Look no further than four-time All-Star DeMar DeRozan.
He has gone over this number in three of his last four games and he dropped 30 points on 11-for-14 shooting in his last meeting with the Nuggets. Although DeRozan might not get the attention that he did when he was making All-Star teams in the Eastern Conference, he is still a bonafide scorer. Go with the over on his points if you think he’s going to lead the Spurs to a win.
