THIS GAME GOES OVER! WEDNESDAY (NBA) SHOOTOUT SPECIAL!
Denver vs. Orlando,
12/05/2018 19:00 EDT,
Score: 124 - 118
Total: -115/+207 Over
The set-up: I’m expecting a wide-open affair between these two hungry non-conference opponents. The Magic come in off a confidence building win in Miami just last night and there’s no reason not to think that the young and healthy home side can’t carry that momentum over here as well. The Nuggets are rolling as well, 16-7 on the year and off an impressive 106-103 road win in Toronto. Orlando won’t be rolling over here either as it plays with revenge after a 112-87 loss in Denver on November 23rd. The Nuggets average 110.2 PPG and they allow 102.7. The Magic average 105.8 PPG and they allow 108.1.
The pick: Take it for what you will though, but Denver has seen the total go “over” the number in 15 of its last 22 after successfully covering the spread in three straight games, while Orlando has seen the total go “over” in three of four already this year in trying to revenge a blowout loss of 20 points or more vs. an opponent. This number is low, play the “over.”
