NBA Odds: Pick Nuggets


The Nuggets vs Warriors betting odds pits two offensive-minded teams against each other on Thursday night. Online betting handicappers should expect to see a high-scoring affair in the later game of the TNT double-header as both teams don’t play much defense. Overall, the Nuggets are better and should win.

What: NBA Betting
When: Wednesday, February 25th – 10:30 PM ET
Where: Oracle Arena – Oakland, CA
Key Stat: Alternated wins and losses in last seven home games


The Storyline: Nuggets vs Warriors Betting Odds
The Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors have swapped roles over the last few years. Now the Nuggets are now a playoff contender in the West and the Warriors are completely irrelevant. The Nuggets need to keep winning to keep Utah and Oklahoma City off their backs.

Meanwhile, Golden State is already playing for next year. Their roster has little identity and they don’t have much of a foundation for the future. With just 16 wins on the year, they are already eyeing the lottery.


Offensive Matchups: Nuggets vs Warriors Betting Odds
The Nuggets have an excellent offense but they clearly play better at home than on the road. Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups aren’t among the culprits as they average more on the road than at home, but the supporting cast clearly prefers the Pepsi Center.

Meanwhile, home court advantage isn’t a huge advantage for the Warriors, who have alternated wins and losses in their last seven at Oracle Arena. Sportsbook odds makers know that offense isn’t ever an issue with this squad as they have all sorts of random parts that can fill it up. The problem is defense and rebounding.

Betting Edge: Even


Defensive Matchups: Nuggets vs Warriors Betting Odds
The Nuggets don’t play much defense whatsoever but they’ll have an advantage in this game: rebounding. The Nuggets are 19th overall while Golden State is 29th. Also, there is a big disparity in defensive rankings. Denver’s defense is rated 21st in the league, which isn’t good but it’s not as bad as Golden State, who is dead-last.

As mentioned, Golden State is a horrible defensive team and a horrible rebounding team. Those two factors seem to go hand in hand, which is why the Warriors are just one of three teams in the NBA to have 40 or more losses.

Betting Edge: Nuggets


Notable Injuries: Nuggets vs Warriors Betting Odds
The Warriors have a slew of injuries as Kelena Azubuike, Brandan Wright and Anthony Randolph are out for the season. Also, Corey Maggette (hamstring) is out for a couple of weeks while Raja Bell and Vladimir Radmanovic are out for a while.

Betting Edge: Nuggets


Betting Prediction: Nuggets vs Warriors Betting Odds
Considering neither team plays any defense, this could go either way. But the Nuggets are the better squad and sports betting fans know that that his good enough to overcome Golden State’s weak home court advantage


Craig’s Pick: Nuggets
