Betting on the Denver Nuggets (+7.5)

Regular Season Record: 48-34

Nikola Jokic can’t carry the Nuggets past this series on his own. Not against this Warriors squad that has the core of its glory years back playing together. But Jokic is still great enough to put Denver on his shoulders and carry them to at least a win. Jokic scored 25 points with 10 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 steals in Game 1 while going 12/25 from the field. Jokic is capable of producing more, but how about Will Barton and Aaron Gordon? Barton had 24 points in Game 1, while Gordon scored just 8 points. Denver can’t play Jokic the entire 48 minutes, so his supporting cast needs to generate more, especially offensively when the Serbian is on the bench.

The Nuggets are 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 games after a loss of more than 10 points.

Betting on the Golden State Warriors (-7.5)

Regular Season Record: 53-29

It wasn’t Steph Curry. It wasn’t Klay Thompson. It was Jordan Poole who led the way for the Warriors in Game 1, as the former Michigan Wolverines star dropped 30 points on the Nuggets. Thompson had 19 points. Curry, coming off an injury, entered the game as a reliever and scored 16 points on 5/13 shooting, Curry could get even better, as he knocks off the rusts. That’s terrifying for the Nuggets, who looked helpless in trying to stop Golden State’s offense that shot over 52 percent from the field and sank 16 of 35 attempts from behind the arc. Draymond Green and Otto Porter combine for just 16 points but each had a plus/minus of +21 – tied for the best in Game 1. Golden State looks like a well-oiled machine heading to Game 2.

The Warriors are 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 home games.

Writer’s Prediction

The Warriors win, 115-106.
