The under is 4-1 in Nets last 5 overall. The over is 35-16-2 in Nuggets last 53 Sunday games. The Nets are 12-4-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets are getting healthier, and that makes them worth a look in the underdog role. However, this is more about the Nuggets at home, where they win by an average of 10.8 points and are 23-12 ATS. It’s hard to bet against the Nuggets at home knowing those numbers. I’ll lay the chalk.
