Expect ‘The Joker’ to supply the fireworks on New Year’s Day in Denver
Pick: Nuggets -10.5
The Knicks are in the middle of a west coast swing and don’t appear to be showing any life. We faded them at home last week on Christmas Day when they were catching 10 against Milwaukee and the Bucks got us to the window. Now we only need to give another half point to back Denver, a team that’s 14-3 at home and 12-5 ATS in the mile high city? This is a rare case of a double digit line still managing to come up short. It goes without saying that New York misses Kristaps Porzingis, but they’ll certainly miss him even more here when Denver’s Nikola Jokic rings in the New Year with yet another big game and the Nuggets cover this number.
