Atlanta Hawks vs. Denver Nuggets Prediction, Tips & Odds
Both teams are in changeable form, and can never get into the desired rhythm. Atlanta has recently suffered two completely unexpected defeats by the Charlotte Hornets and Houston Rockets, so they will try to start a series of positive results in this match. They play very fast and efficient basketball, which is best seen from the fact that more than 230 points were scored in three of the last five matches played. With the return of Nikola Jokić to the field, the Nuggets started to play much more offensively, and their last five matches played ended with more than 220 points scored. Both teams are in a great offensive rhythm, and we believe that this trend will continue in this match as well.
Prediction: Over 222 Points
