1 unit on Denver -9.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
George Karl and the Nuggets cannot afford to play badly here. They've lost two straight and need to get their confidence back. No better way than to play a horrible team at home. During Karl's amazing post-All Star run, these are the kind of teams that Denver has pounded. Denver is 10-1 ATS at home vs. teams with a losing record since Karl took over. The Nuggs are 14-2 ATS this seas as a home favorite of 6.5 to 12 points. Denver should win this one by close to 20 points. One star on the Nuggets.
