Nuggets on Clippers picks and predictions


Nuggets 114, Clippers 109

money line

Assuming Jokic is active for Denver on Friday, Nuggets (+105) it’s my inclination. The Clippers are without George again on Friday and have struggled to win games of late.

against the spread

PIPES +1.5 (-105) it’s an intriguing bet as long as Jokic is on the court for Denver. Since Jokic’s status is unknown, he would prefer to bet on the spread in this game rather than the money line.

The Nuggets are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record, while the Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. On top of that, Denver is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 road meetings against Los Angeles.


Regardless of who is active in this game tonight, UNDER 224.5 (-108) seems to be the ideal choice. Both teams are in the bottom half of the league in pace.

The Under is 28-8-1 in the last 37 meetings between these 2 teams in Los Angeles and 37-16-2 in the last 55 meetings overall.
