The Line: Charlotte Bobcats -6 -- Over/Under: 208 See the Latest Odds
The Denver Nuggets head to Charlotte on Monday night to face off against the Bobcats.
The Charlotte Bobcats are currently sitting at 29-34 this season, putting the Bobcats in seventh place in the East. Charlotte has one of the best defenses in the league this season, holding opponents to an impressive average of 97.4 points per game. The offense for the Bobcats has struggled this season, but with this defense, the Bobcats are showing that with another key addition or two, the Bobcats are capable of competing. Charlotte’s last outing was on Saturday, where the Bobcats fell to the Grizzlies 111-89 in Memphis.

The Denver Nuggets look to be watching the playoffs from home this season, as the Nuggets have a record of 27-35 this season, putting Denver nearly ten games out of the eight spot. Denver’s defense is struggling again this season, but unlike last year, the Nuggets are unable to put up the points needed to make up the difference. The Nuggets suffered a loss in their last outing, falling to the Pelicans in overtime on Sunday night 111-107 in New Orleans.
The Denver Nuggets are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven road games, and the Nuggets are just 2-9 against the spread in their last 11 games when playing on no rest. The Nuggets are also just 3-7 against the spread in their last ten road games against a team with a winning home record.
The Charlotte Bobcats are 6-0-1 against the spread in their last seven games at home, and the Bobcats are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six home games against teams with a losing overall record on the season.
Tough call here, but I have to take the Bobcats. Charlotte was able to get a win against the Nuggets in Denver earlier this season, and now with the game being home in Charlotte, and the Nuggets coming off a tough loss on Sunday, the Bobcats once again look to have the advantage here.
I don’t know if I’ll be on this one, but the Bobcats look like the side.
