Denver Nuggets

Denver continues to have a fever. Mike Malone's players have lost 2 of their last 3 matches, losing to Minnesota (107:124) and Oklahoma (94:108). Only Atlanta managed to beat the “nuggets” (133:115).

Due to recent setbacks, Denver dropped to seventh place in the Western Conference. It looks like the management of the team made several mistakes. The stake was placed on the successful actions of Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. But the first one is injured and the second one finds it difficult to carry the team on his own. Added to all the problems was Michael Porter's damage. Nuggets need roster changes.

Charlotte Hornets

Towards the middle of the season, Charlotte slowed down. For a long time, Borrego's charges were not enough. Weak defensive play worsened the Hornets' performance. In the last three matches the Hornets have looked disastrously bad. They lost to Portland (116:125), Phoenix (106:137) and Utah (102:112).

This is how little by little Charlotte became one of the worst away teams in the league. They have suffered eight defeats in the last nine matches on foreign soil. By some miracle, they managed to beat San Antonio (131:115) and Atlanta (130:127).

Prediction

Denver has one of the best defensive lines in the league. At home, the Nuggets are conceding 101.3 points on average. But bookmakers for some reason believe that Charlotte will be able to break through the 113.5 mark.

In the previous two confrontations with Phoenix and Utah, the Hornets did not score more than 106 points. But "Suns" and "Jazz" also boast reliable defense. Given this, we question Charlotte's capabilities.

Our prediction is that individual total "Charlotte" is less than 113.5 points for the coefficient 1.87 in BC 1xBet.

Charlotte have been looking too bad away lately. It seems that Borrego's charges have lost faith in themselves. In this case, we suggest giving preference to Denver.

The second prediction is the victory of Denver, taking into account overtime for 1.61.
