Denver at Charlotte

1.5 units on Denver -5.5 (-109) (risk 1.5 to return 2.88) RESULT: LOSS
Denver is fighting for the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference, and Charlotte is a win away from being in at least a play-in tournament game. The Nuggets come off two tough losses to Utah and Brooklyn, but they're favored in this game, and they won the only meeting this season with the Hornets, 129-104, in March. Charlotte has lost five of its past eight games, including 112-110 to New Orleans on Sunday, and their last three wins were against bottom-feeders Detroit and Orlando. Denver has had two days off to regroup, and the Hornets have lost four straight with one day of rest. Also, Charlotte is 1-8-1 ATS its past 10 games versus teams with .600 or better winning percentages, and it has covered just one of its last five games. Take the Nuggets.
