Nuggets vs. Clippers Betting Prediction

This is the third of their four regular-season games against one another and the Nuggets won both games by double-digits so far this season.

Looking at the offenses in the previous four games, there is a huge difference here as Denver is scoring 122.8 points per game while Los Angeles is averaging 106.8 points per game.

Without Paul George, the Clippers are going to struggle to score enough to keep up as Kawhi Leonard is trying to be more consistent.

The Nuggets have covered the spread in six of their previous eight road games against the Clippers, so go with the Denver Nuggets getting a couple of points on the road here.

Prediction: Denver Nuggets +2 (-105)
