NBA Odds: Nuggets-Wizards on NBA-TV

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 18-Mar-2019

The Denver Nuggets (46-22 SU, 36-32 ATS) continue their assault on the Western Conference standings this Thursday when they visit the Washington Wizards (30-40 SU, 34-36 ATS), tipping off at 7 PM ET on NBA-TV. The Nuggets have gone 4-2 SU and 3-3 ATS over their last six games to move within one game of the Golden State Warriors for first in the West.

Things haven't gone quite as well for Washington this year. They're still within shouting distance of the last playoff spot in the East, but with John Wall (achilles) out for the season and Dwight Howard (back) only playing nine games, the Wizards are likely headed for the golf course. Despite these issues, the Wiz are fighting hard at 5-3 SU and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games.

Denver's injury situation isn't too bad – Michael Porter Jr. (back surgery), whose health issues caused him to slide all the way to No. 14 in the 2018 NBA Draft, is the only Nugget on the shelf. Torrey Craig (shoulder) and Trey Lyles (hamstring) have recently come off the injured list; Isaiah Thomas, attempting a comeback from major hip problems, was dropped from the rotation last week.
