The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 114.3 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Lou Williams is averaging 19.8 points and 5.4 assists while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18.8 points and six rebounds. Montrezl Harrell is the third double-digit scorer and Landry Shamet is grabbing 1.8 rebounds.

The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have won six of their last nine road games.

The Denver Nuggets look for a victory after splitting their last six games. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 112 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 107 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 20.4 points and 10.7 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 18.1 points and five assists. Gary Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Paul Millsap is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line.

The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games. The Nuggets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Clippers are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Denver and the favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 8-1 in Nuggets last 9 home games. The over is 4-0 in Clippers last 4 overall.

The Los Angeles Clippers are having defensive issues during this hit or miss stretch they're going through and the roster is very limited with some of the moves they made last week. The Denver Nuggets have been a team you can blindly back at home and make a nice profit, as they're winning home games by an average of 11.8 points while producing a 20-9 ATS record at home as well. The Nuggets are also 7-1 ATS this season as a double-digit favorite, as they're winning those games by an average of 24.9 points while shooting 51.7 percent from the field. Trends and numbers don't always tell the whole story, but the Nuggets at home has been as close to automatic as you can get in this business. 

Pick:
Denver Nuggets -10
