Betting on the Denver Nuggets

Nuggets vs Magic Predictions Picks Betting Odds NBA February 9, 2023
  • Regular season record: 38-17

The Denver Nuggets continue to be unstoppable in the Western Conference, and on Tuesday they returned to winning ways, avenging Sunday’s 20-point loss to the Timberwolves.

Denver shot an impressive 62.4% from the field and three of its players scored more than 20 points, including another double-double from Nikola Jokić with 20 points, 12 rebounds, and 16 assists.

This collective performance, which has been consistent throughout the campaign, has Michael Malone’s team fighting with the Celtics for the best record in the NBA and 4.5 games ahead of the Grizzlies for first place in the Western Conference.

Denver’s quintet is seventh in the league in average points per game with 116.8, but it is the best in the league in field goal shooting percentage with 50.8% and is also first in three-point shooting percentage with 39.6%. Besides, they have a possible MVP in Jokic for the third year in a row. They’re clearly on fire.

On the defensive side, it doesn’t matter that they receive 113 points per game if the offense responds as usual. Denver has problems when it comes to defending shots from the field, but that flaw is clouded by being the ninth-best team at stopping the three-point shot and allowing the fewest rebounds per game to opponents (40.3).

Betting on the Orlando Magic

  • Regular season record: 22-33

The Orlando Magic’s season is going better than expected for them, despite playing in 11 sub-.500 games prior to this one. Jamahl Mosley’s quintet is far from being one of the worst in the circuit, and they are only three games behind the Pacers for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

However, this three-game stay at home, where they have a 13-14 record, could not be a pleasant one since, in addition to Tuesday’s loss to the Knicks, they must host the best team in the Western Conference on Thursday and then the always complicated Miami Heat.

The Magic’s main problem is its offensive deficiency, the same one that has it as the fourth team with the lowest average points per game, registering 111.4. Only Paolo Banchero averages more than 20 points per game, and they are the sixth team that loses the most turnovers, with 15.2.

If they can improve, their performance could be of great help to a defense that has not been too bad. Although they allow 114.4 points per game, they are the sixth-best team at defending long distance shooting with just 35% of baskets allowed, and they are the fourth team that allows the fewest rebounds to their opponents with an average of 42.0 per game.
