On the season, the Nuggets average 103.9 points on 44.8 percent shooting and allow 105.8 points on 45.4 percent shooting. While defense has been an issue for Denver all season, the Nuggets have won six of their last eight games when scoring 100-plus points. Point guard Ty Lawson has dished out at least five assists in 13 straight games he’s played. The Denver Nuggets are 31-38 ATS overall and 14-20 ATS at home.

The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS loss. The Wizards are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams, while the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
In a toss-up game between two teams that have been widely inconsistent all season, I’ll take the home team.
