Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets Betting Preview for Nov 8, 2023

Two Western Conference teams are set to face off at Denver’s Ball Arena this Wednesday as the Golden State Warriors go head to head with the Denver Nuggets. The Warriors enter the game with a 6-2 season record, having secured an 11-point victory on the road against Detroit just this Monday.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets boast a 7-1 season record and have clinched three consecutive wins, including an impressive 18-point win over the Pelicans on Monday. In this matchup, the Denver Nuggets are favored by -3.

Champs Look Strong

The defending NBA Champions, the Denver Nuggets, are off to a strong start this season, with just one loss on the road against the Timberwolves. Since that loss, the Nuggets have posted impressive scores of 125, 123, and 134 points in their last three games. For the season, Denver is averaging 117 points per game, ranking them 10th in the league.

Nikola Jokic continues to lead the charge for the Nuggets, averaging over 28 points and nearly 13 rebounds per game. His partnership with Jamal Murray has been exceptional, with Murray contributing just under 17 points per game, and Michael Porter Jr. at 15.9.

The Nuggets will host this game and then play against Houston on Sunday before facing the Clippers next Tuesday. The impressive early-season statistics of the Denver Nuggets raise the question of whether they can keep their key players free from injuries.

Veterans Leading Warriors

Stephen Curry, an NBA Hall of Famer in the making, leads the Golden State Warriors in scoring, averaging over 30 points per game. Curry is also contributing with 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. As a team, the Warriors are scoring an average of 116.1 points per game, positioning them in the middle of the league.

Draymond Green, who missed the first couple of games for the Warriors, has returned and is now playing an average of 26 minutes per game, scoring 10.3 points per game. Chris Paul, in his first season with the Warriors, is distributing nearly 8 assists per game. Golden State is looking to get more production from their bench players, including Dario Saric, Gary Payton, Moses Moody, and Kevon Looney. One of these players will need to step up for the Warriors to reach their peak potential.

The Warriors are playing their fourth and final game of a road trip, having secured victories in two out of the first three. Following this matchup, they will host Cleveland on Saturday, with back-to-back home games against the Timberwolves and Thunder, and then hosting the Rockets. The Golden State Warriors’ standing in the league will be interesting to watch, as they aim to reclaim the Pacific Division.

Nuggets Top Warriors on Wednesday

This matchup features two formidable Western Conference teams, with the Nuggets defending their NBA Championship title and the Warriors still possessing key pieces from their previous title runs. Playing at home, the Nuggets tend to elevate their performance when facing top-tier talent, and the Warriors certainly fit that description.

Expect a highly competitive game, but in the end, the Nuggets are likely to emerge victorious by more than a basket. Our pick is to take the Denver Nuggets -3 over the Golden State Warriors in this Wednesday matchup. Good luck and enjoy the game!
