Online NBA Basketball Betting - Mile High

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/6/2014 10:19:24 PM

Denver has always been a tough place for National Basketball Association teams to play because of the altitude and when a team has to play here in a back-to-back situation it’s even tougher and this season it will not get one bit easier.

The Nuggets opened the year leading the league in scoring at 104 a game and are only one of three teams hitting with triple digits on a nightly basis.

Maybe more importantly for online betting enthusiasts is the fact that after 24 games, Denver covered 15 and were even more potent on the road.

And they are doing it after the franchise left last year. Carmelo Anthony demanded a trade last year and got it but since he has been gone, Denver has gone 33 and 16. Guess he is not missed all that much.

The Colorado squad has beaten some good teams like Miami, the Lakers and the defending champion Mavericks.

And Coach George Karl, who has had talented teams in the past, has not only beaten cancer a couple of times but he is enjoying coaching now as much as he ever has in his long and successful career.

Karl: “We were on 2 and a half hours of practice and killing them in the short training and you never heard one moment of bitching. Not one word. It was refreshing but also motivating.”

They have even taken good things from losses. After a tough beat to the Lakers at home recently Karl told his team that when you don’t play well and have a chance to beat a good team, it’s the sign of a good team.

It’s no sports betting secret in this league that when a player comes to play a former team, or a coach for that matter, there is extra motivation and Karl doesn’t shy away from that fact.

Coach: “Friends and people who played with you, you actually want to beat them more than you want to beat your enemies. You want to beat people that you were close to at one time and now you’re battling them. Because you know them a little more and they know you a little more. Yet get more animated to kick their butt when you play them.”

Karl’s teams always ran and that was not really possible with Anthony because he is a ball stopper. He isolates when he gets the rock, looks to go one on one and the other guys watch.

Basketball is all about movement and the ball cannot be dominated by one player because the team will suffer. And it does not do anything for team morale.

This season, Denver is moving the ball, are ranked No. 1 in assists in the league and that kind of sharing will pay dividends during the season and also when it counts, the playoffs.

Denver is also third in the league in steals behind only Memphis and New York.

This week, the Nuggets have the two Texas teams to deal with and then get Golden State with no rest. These games are pivotal to maintain composure because they have to fly next Saturday to take on the formidable Indiana Pacers.

Look for the Nuggets to be very tough against the sportsbooks number at home this week.
