Raptors at Nuggets picks and predictions


Nuggets 118, Raptors 115



The Nuggets (-240) should win, but they’re being slightly overvalued on the moneyline vs. a Raptors team that has won 3 of the last 6 head-to-head meetings. Bet the spread and/or total instead.

Against the spread

BET RAPTORS +6.5 (-115).

VanVleet’s clutch performance vs. Washington should give him more confidence moving forward after ending a shooting slump where he averaged just 9 points over 3 games. Couple that with Toronto playing up to the level of its competition lately, going 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games vs. teams with a winning percentage above .600, and the Raptors should be able to keep this one close.


BET OVER 229.5 (-105).

The Over has hit in 5 of Toronto’s last 6 games vs. teams with a winning record and is 4-0 in Denver’s last 4 vs. sub-.500 teams.

The Over is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings between these teams in Denver and Monday’s matchup should be another high-scoring affair.
