The Golden State Warriors will look to add to their NBA-best 27-6 record on Tuesday when they play host to the Denver Nuggets.  Golden State has won nine of their last 10 games, while Denver’s Boxing Day road win against the Clippers broke a two-game slide.

The Warriors are 7-point favourites to win on the NBA odds, with a total of 217.5.

Nuggets vs. Warriors NBA Betting Odds

In their three-game season series last year, Golden State got the better of Denver, with both their wins coming at home.  This has been a generally low scoring head-to-head as eight of the last 10 meeting, including the last four, have gone Under.  Despite the low total trend, about 75 per cent of Sports Interaction bettors are taking the Over for this one, while almost 70 per cent are backing the Warriors to win.

Denver has struggled against Steph Curry and Co., dropping eight of their last 10 games against G-State.  The Nuggets are 13-19 against the spread this season and have failed to cover in four of their last five games.  The total has gone Over in 10 of the Nuggets’ last 13 road games.

The Warriors have been dominant at home, winning 15 of their last 16 games in the Bay Area.  They’ve also been a great cover option, going 21-10-2 ATS overall and 13-4-1 ATS at home.  The total has gone Under in six of Golden State’s last seven games against the Nuggets.

Denver Nuggets

Nikola Jokic continues to remind NBA fans why he was last year’s MVP, putting up a monster performance of 26 points, 22 rebounds and eight assists against the Clippers, for his second straight game with at least 20 points and 20 boards.  Jokic leads the Nuggets in almost every major statistical category.  He averages team-highs in points (25.9), rebounds (13.8), assists (7.2), steals (1.3) and blocks (0.8).

Canadian Jamal Murray continues to remain out after tearing his ACL near the end of last season and is reportedly still months away from returning to the lineup.  Michael Porter Jr. (back) and P.J. Dozier (ACL) are both done for the season.  Aaron Gordon (hamstring) and Bol Bol (health and safety protocols) are listed as questionable for Tuesday.  Monte Morris (knee) is listed as probable.

Golden State Warriors

Curry continues to push Kevin Durant for the NBA scoring lead as his 33-point performance in Phoenix on Christmas Day led the Warriors to 116-107 win and sole possession of first place in the NBA.  It was Curry’s fourth straight game with at least 30 points and he’s averaged 34.8 ppg during that span.  Curry averages 27.9 ppg on the season, second to Durant’s mark of 29.7.

Canadian Andrew Wiggins (health and safety) and Andre Iguodala (knee) are listed as probable to play on Tuesday.  Jordan Poole (health and safety) is expected to remain out, although he’s been cleared to rejoin the team for practice.  Wiggins is second on the team with 18.7 ppg, while Poole is third with 17.9.  Draymond Green is expected to miss several games after entering health and safety protocols on Monday.  Green is averaging 8.4 ppg to go along with team-highs in rebounds (7.9), assists (7.5) and blocks (1.2).
