The current betting odds at Oddsmaker sportsbook has the game lined at a pick with an over under of 206 points. A wager on the Clippers or Nuggets will return -110 odds so there is no clear betting favorite in this game.

The Clips have been a hot team as they have won four straight games and sport a 10-2 record on their home court. The Nuggets on the other hand are coming in with two straight defeats including a 109-105 home defeat to the Clippers on Sunday night. A couple of reasons here for such a short line on the Clippers. Some are playing the revenge angle which is an angle that does not apply to professional sports and is more of a college angle. The most significant reason for this line being at a pick is the fact the Clippers are on the back end of a back to back and more importantly playing their fourth game in five nights. An injury concern here for the LA Clippers is DeAndre Jordon who suffered what appears to be a mild knee injury last night but is expected to play tonight.

The Denver Nuggets could try and run on this Clippers team tonight. The Nuggets could take advantage of their deep roster and the Clippers thin depth by running and rotating players in an out to cause possible fatigue in LA’s second half performance. The Nuggets can bring scoring as they post six players who average in double digits plus reserve Rudy Fernandez averages nearly 9 points a game. Denver puts over 105 points a game and 48.1% from the floor on the season.

The trend in this game is heavily on the Clippers as they have covered the past six meetings with the Denver Nuggets. The over has cashed recently for both teams. The Clippers are 6-1 to the over in their past seven games and the Nuggets are 6-2 to the over in their past eight contests.
