Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers Betting Pick – Apr 4, 2024

A pair of Western Conference teams will meet up in Los Angeles on Thursday. The Denver Nuggets are slated to take on the Los Angeles Clippers. The Denver Nuggets are leading the Western Conference standings with their 53-23 record. The defending champions are coming off a win over the Spurs on Tuesday.

For the Clippers, they are 47-28 on the season. The Clippers currently sit fourth in the Western Conference standings. The Clippers are 5-5 over their last 10 games, and coming off a loss on the road at Sacramento on Tuesday.

The Denver Nuggets are -2 over the Los Angeles Clippers in this one. The total is 223.5.

Jokic Big Man for Nuggets

In the Tuesday win over the Spurs, Nikola Jokic was once again unstoppable. The big man recorded 42 points, ripped down 16 rebounds, and dished out 6 assists. On the season now, Jokic is scoring 26.5, and adding 12.3 rebounds and 9 assists per game. The Nuggets continue to remain without their point guard Jamal Murray. Murray has been out since March 21st with a knee injury.

Denver on the season is 14th in scoring with 114.5 points per game. The Nuggets are making nearly 50% of their shots. Denver is not a great three point shooting team, as they are making just 11.5 per game, which is 28th in the league.

The Nuggets are at home on Saturday to take on the Atlanta Hawks. After that, they are in Utah to take on the Jazz. The final three games for the Nuggets are at home against Minnesota and on the road at the Spurs and Grizzlies.

Clippers Down Home Stretch

The Los Angeles Clippers finished the month of March strong with three straight wins. They beat the 76ers, Magic and Hornets all on the road. They were unable to finish with a perfect road trip as they lost their first game in April at Sacramento.

Kawhi Leonard did not play in the loss for the Clippers. Russell Westbrook came off the bench and scored 20 points in 24 minutes. Paul George scored 18 for the Clippers. On the season, Los Angeles is 12th in the league with 116 points per game. Leonard is the top scorer at 23.7 per game. George sits second at 22.6 per game.

The Clippers will remain at home for a game against the Jazz on Friday and Cavaliers on Sunday. Following that, Los Angeles will play a road and home game against the Suns, before finishing the season against the Jazz.

Nuggets Top Clippers

We expect a competitive game between these two Western Conference contenders. The Nuggets are in the home stretch, trying to grab that top seed, and run it back to the NBA Finals. The Clippers are a little beat up, and just focusing on getting healthy. Look for the Nuggets to get the job done on the road here. Our final bet for this game is the Denver Nuggets -2.5 over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday!
