November 8, 2023

Two high-scoring teams clash when the defending champion Denver Nuggets battle the veteran Golden State Warriors Wednesday night inside the Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado. They tip it off at 10:00 pm.

Mybookie has installed the defending champion Nuggets as a solid 3.5-point favorite. 

Denver Nuggets Betting Preview

The Nuggets (7-1) are playing like the defending champs and have raced out to a brilliant record with their lone blemish coming at the hands of the upstart Minnesota Timberwolves. However, they are a great team at home as they have posted a perfect mark of 5-0 and it will be tested against the Warriors, who are not afraid to go on the road at all. 

The Nuggets are led by all-world center Nikola Jokic, who some have said is the best player in the world. He plays both ends of the floor and he is not only a legit scorer but he can also handle the ball so well for a big man. He has the ability and the knack to find the open man and the open cutter as well. He is averaging close to 29 points per game while also handing out eight assists to go along with close to 13 rebounds. 

He is such a well-rounded player and just posted the 108th triple-double game of his career, which broke a tie with LeBron James and a great point guard in Jason Kidd to now move into fourth place in that category. He has a ways to go to catch HOF'er Magic Johnson for third place as he needs 30 more triple-double games. 

Golden State Warriors Betting Preview

The Warriors (6-2) have strung together some nice wins to start the season and they are winning games on the road. They have amassed a 5-1 mark so far on the road this season. They were a horrible 11-30 on the road last season en route to a 44-38 record. They have flipped the script in 2023 and they will look to put up a signature effort and win against a very good Nuggets team. 

Golden State is led by Stephen Curry who has netted a monster 30 points per contest and has reverted back to his All-Star form through eight games. He might be 35-years-old but he is playing like a 25-year-old and as long as this team can stay healthy they will contend and compete for a title. 

The Warriors are a team that loves to knock down three-point shots and they can bury them in spurts, which is why they are still a dangerous team. They can fall behind by ten or so points and quickly shoot themselves back into a contest. 

They are connecting on 37% from beyond the arc as a team and they are hitting 53% overall from the court. Veteran shooting guard Klay Thompson has also given the club a nice spark, as he is averaging a solid 17 this season. But, Thompson still has the ability to go off for 20 plus points on any given night.
