Best bets on Nuggets vs Lakers

Bookmakers from 22bet suggest that the odds of the Denver Nuggets winning are 1.3 and that is understandable considering how good they have been against under 50% win teams and will also play on their home floor. Of course, a lot will depend upon whether Nikola Jokic, Will Barton, and Aaron Gordon are available, especially Nikola Jokic. On the other hand, the Lakers have struggled away from home but have been giving much-better fightback recently. So, yes, place the bets when you see if Nikola Jokic is cleared to play. If he is playing, don’t risk a bet in favor of the Lakers, a team that has been given odds of 3.52.

Bookmakers at bet365 predict equal odds of 1.90 for a Total Over or Under of 229.0. The Lakers' defense can struggle if Jokic is playing and we are likely to see the total head “Over” in that case. I see the Lakers coming up with a strong offensive effort and I see Malik Monk and Talen Horton-Tucker finishing on a high note on the offensive end. So, yes betting Over 229.0 seems a safer bet.

Bookmakers at 1xbet suggest that Malik Monk has the odds of 1.87 for going Over 17.5. Malik Monk has been not in full flow recently, scoring 20+ once in the last five games while usually being in 9-13 points range. However, I see him finishing on a high note and I believe he will be over the points mark here. So I will go with “TO 17.5” for Malik Monk.

Denver Nuggets form

Depending upon how the Nuggets finish here, they will be at the fifth or sixth rank. If they finish at the fifth rank, they will be facing Mavericks but I believe they are probably going to finish at the sixth rank and will end up matching up against the Golden State Warriors. The Nuggets will have an advantage with Nikola Jokic in the middle but with Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray being ruled out for the postseason, the Warriors can finally show their depth on both ends. Remember the Warriors will begin with a two-game homestand and overall, four out of seven games have home-court advantage. The Warriors may end up beating the Nuggets here but Nikola Jokic has taken his game to another level during the Postseason. 

Los Angeles Lakers form

The Lakers will finish at the 11th position in the West. They began the season as title favorites so there is no doubt that this has been an underwhelming return. The experiment to bring in Russell Westbrook alongside Davis and LeBron failed so the team has a lot of decisions to make during the offseason. Malik Monk has shown promise at the off-guard position and he can become a viable scorer and even a playmaker next season. Anyway, this season is surely done for the Lakers, and let us see who they bring in during next season.

Nuggets vs Lakers: possible lineups

  • Nuggets most likely starting five: PG: Monte Morris | SF: Will Barton | F: Jeff Green | PF: Aaron Gordon | C: Nikola Jokic;
  • Lakers most likely starting five: PG: Austin Reaves | SG: Malik Monk | G: Talen Horton-Tucker | F: Stanley Johnson | C: Dwight Howard.
