Denver Nuggets first to 15 (-155) (Bet $155 to win $100)

This number is a bit juiced but I still see amazing value here. This bet has been an absolute cash cow when Jokic is playing. I will list below the past 14 races to 15 finals in games that Nikola plays in

  • 1/7: Kings (17-11) W
  • 1/9: Thunder (17-4) W
  • 1/11: Clippers (16-10) W
  • 1/13: Blazers (16-14) W
  • 1/15: Lakers (16-14) W
  • 1/16: Jazz (15-7) W
  • 1/19: Clippers (17-9) W
  • 1/21: Grizzlies (15-13) W
  • 1/23: Pistons (15-13) W
  • 1/25: Pistons (17-11) W
  • 1/26: Nets (15-4) W
  • 1/28: Pelicans (15-11) W
  • 1/30: Bucks (14-16) L
  • 2/1: Timberwolves (17-10) W

So as you can see the Nuggets have won the race to 15 points in 13 of their last 14 games in which Nikola Jokic plays. Not to mention they are 2/2 vs New Orleans in the race to 15 PTS as they started the game 16-10 vs them in December. Finding 13 out of 14 is not an easy bet to find so playing it at a little juice is more than worth it, especially against a team like the Pelicans who they’ve already done this both times against.

Both Jokic and Gordon were able to rest their last game so I'm expecting them to be more than prepared to start this game well in front of the home crowd. For those who don't know you can find this prop under “game props” and then scroll down to the Nuggets/Pelicans game. Make sure you select first to 15 PTS for the 1st quarter specifically as they give you options of first to 15 for all four quarters in the pregame.
