Barring any buzzer beaters, Denver are expected to win a tight contest. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with them, who are 9-10-1 against the spread.
Brooklyn's victory lifted them to 12-10 while Denver's defeat dropped them down to 14-6. We'll see if the Nets can repeat their recent success or if the Nuggets bounce back and reverse their fortune.
