Golden Nuggets: Why bettors are loving Denver this season
The Denver Nuggets are quietly making some noise in the betting world.
The Nuggets are riding a seven-game win streak (6-1 ATS) into action Thursday night when the Bulls roll into town. Denver has also been destroying totals, playing over the number in five straight games and 10 of its last 11. The Nuggets’ 29-20 O/U record is the third best in the Association and they also boast an identical 29-20 ATS mark.
Denver has been getting it done for bettors with a well-balanced scoring attack. Six players on the roster average double figures in scoring, led by Danilo Gallinari’s 17 points per game. The Nuggets are putting up an impressive 104.2 points per contest – the fourth-best offensive output in the league – and are allowing opponents to drop an average of 100.7 points.
Denver’s dominance on the offensive glass is another reason for its impressive over run. The Nuggets are snatching 13.6 offensive rebounds (second in the league) and 45.4 total rebounds on a nightly basis - tied for the best mark in the Association.
