Denver Nuggets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder: Key Injuries

Denver Nuggets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder: Best Bet

Moneyline: This game likely means a whole lot more to the Thunder, as it’s just a half game up on the San Antonio Spurs for the seventh seed in the Western Conference. The Nuggets are only one game back of the Golden State Warriors for the top seed, but expect an Oklahoma City crowd to help in this one. Take the Thunder at -172.

Against the spread: The line is a narrow -3.5, and the Thunder is the pick at -110

Over/under: The two low-scoring games between the two this year came in 2018. Expect February’s shootout to be the better indication heading into this one and pick the OVER at -110.
