Denver Nuggets at Charlotte Hornets Overview

Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets enter into this contest searing hot on a seven-game winning streak both straight-up and against the spread. Most recently, the Nuggets were taken to overtime by the Orlando Magic on Wednesday where they won 124-118 to cover as a 4.5-point favorite. This outing marks Denver’s fourth consecutive road game.

Charlotte Hornets

On an opposite note, the Hornets come into this contest on a three-game skid both against the spread and straight-up. Most recently, Charlotte traveled to the Twin Cities on Wednesday where they were pummeled by the Minnesota Timberwolves falling 121-104 where they could not come in under a 4.5-point line as the underdog.

Reasons To Avoid Denver

Buying low and selling high is a practice we preach and no two teams typify this narrative more than the Nuggets and Hornets entering into this game. The Nuggets are more prone to be overvalued with each win and cover they pick up while the Hornets are on the opposite of the equation finding themselves in a better position to take back inflated points with each time they lose and fail to cover. Given the streaks of both teams, Denver is almost assuredly set up here for an overlay.

Reasons To Back Charlotte

Given the fact this game is forecasted to be a nip and tuck affair settled perhaps by one bucket, it is prudential to take the team with the better depth to go the distance who also is more responsible with the basketball. Charlotte owns an advantage in both the bench department and commits fewer turnovers compared to their opponents. Given the fact Charlotte also plays a better brand of basketball at home with an 8-5 SU record on their own court compared to their ghastly road record, the Hornets offer tremendous equity taking back a point here in The Hive.

Nuggets at Hornets NBA Prediction 12/07/2018

There is an old saying that it is better to be lucky than it is good and the Nuggets have lived by this idiom on their road trip. Their first two games against both Portland and Toronto (teams with prominent home court advantages) were settled by a combined four points. After this, Denver would be on the fortuitous side of an overtime period with the Magic in their latest venture. Very easily, the Nuggets could have gone 0-3 SU as opposed to 3-0 SU on their current road trip but the public solely puts stock in the fact they covered and picked up two quality wins on paper in a hostile environment. However, Denver is not the underdog like they were in Rip City or the Great White North and now are expected to win in yet another notoriously energized setting. Their luck will run out here, and the Hornets will end their winning streak.
