Another NBA match scheduled early for this evening between the Brooklyn Nets and the Denver Nuggets. The Nets are considered underdogs but I disagree with the bookmakers as odds should be much more balanced imo. Nets are playing good. Their offense is just amazing and they are playing very good. In fact, they have a 3-3 record. They have scored at least 112 points in 5 of these 6 matches played. Their only bad match was against New York Knicks as they have scored only 86 points. At home, they have played 3 matches and they were amazing in all of them. In fact, they won 126-121 against Orlando Magic (they are the only team able to beat Orlando until today), 116-104 against Atlanta Hawks and 112-107 against Cleveland Cavaliers. It's true that their defense is very poor but I don't care about that and that's why I'm betting on them to score and not to win.
Denver Nuggets, on the other hand, have a 2-3 record. They won against Sacramento Kings 96-79 and Atlanta Hawks 100-105 but they were terrible against Utah Jazz (106-96), Washington Wizards (104-109) and Charlotte Hornets (110-93). They didn't impressed me that much and I don't like them.
Their defense is not that good (even if it's better than the Nets') and their offense is nothing special. As I said before, I don't like to bet on Denver Nuggets...they are a very unpredictable team and they will suffer a lot today against the high tempo proposed by the home side.
Line for this match is 222,5 and that means we will see very high tempo basketball from both sides (especially from Brooklyn Nets). I think that Brooklyn Nets can even win this one. I see value.
Prediction: Brooklyn Nets 122-108 Denver Nuggets
