Denver Nuggets 2021-22 Season
Reigning MVP Nikola Jokic has the Denver Nuggets staying afloat in the Western Conference as the team deals with missing Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. There’s an outside chance that they miss the top six seeds in the standings and land in the Play-In game, but at the same time, they could realistically force themselves all the way up to the No. 4 seed too.
Either way, Murray will be back at some point and Jokic isn't going anywhere, which will set up the Nuggets to continue their success for years to come. See more information on the Nuggets, including their full schedule, odds, injuries, and much more.
Betting on the Denver Nuggets
The Nuggets will continue to follow the lead of their MVP Nikola Jokic to the finish line of the regular season. The team will be in a hard fought battle with other mid-tier teams in the Western Conference to avoid the play-in tournament. Be sure to utilize the following bet types through the end of the year when wagering on the Nuggets.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
Moneyline bets are quite common in the betting world, and those are simply bets on which team will win the game regardless of margin. If you bet on the Nuggets moneyline, if they won the game then you'd cash your bet whether it was a nail-biter or a blowout.
Let's look at an example:
- Oklahoma City Thunder +190
- Denver Nuggets -240
As with spread bets, the favorite has a minus sign and the underdog a plus sign. The American odds can be confusing at first, but think of them in increments of $10 or $100. A Nuggets bet would require $24 to win $10, whereas a Thunder bet would win $19 for every $10 wagered.
Just because a team has a winning record doesn't mean they're automatically good bets every night. That's because most bets are against expectations, and those were high for the Nuggets coming into 2021-22. Through adversity, Denver has a 27-31 record against-the-spread (ATS).
A spread bet is a super popular wager that's all based on how much a team will win or lose by. Let's look at an example.
- Denver Nuggets (-6.5)
- Minnesota Timberwolves (+6.5)
In this case, the Nuggets have a minus sign, which means they're favored to win by 6.5 points. If you bet on Denver, you'd win only if the team beat the Wolves by seven or more points. If the Wolves won outright or the Nuggets merely won by six or fewer points, those Denver spread bets would lose.
The Nuggets are 31-26-1 in over/under bets this season, which puts them in the top half of the NBA. Over/under bets, also called totals, are wagers on the total point output in a game by both teams.
Say the Nuggets played the Utah Jazz and the total was set at 213 points. If you bet the over, you'd win at 214 or more points by both teams. If it finished at 213 or lower, under bettors would win. If it landed at exactly 213, it's called a push and no one loses.
Nuggets Prop Bets
What's more fun than betting on the MVP of the league? If you want to make some Nikola Jokic-specific wagers, those are called player props, which are simply bets on the performance of just one player. For example, some Nuggets props include Jokic to post a triple-double, Jamal Murray to score over/under 21 points, and more.
Expectations will be high in Denver with Nikola Jokic leading the way, which means bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Nuggets futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Nuggets to make the playoffs, win the Northwest Division, win the Western Conference, win the NBA Finals, or even individual awards like Jokic winning league MVP.
