10* Lakers/Nuggets GM 1 TOTAL BLOCKBUSTER!
(NBA) LA Lakers vs. Denver, 04/20/2024 8:30 PM, Score: 103 - 114
Total: 223.50 | -110.00 Under
Result: Win
10* UNDER Lakers/Nuggets (BLOCKBUSTER)

The Nuggets won the NBA championship last year and they have a legitimate shot at duplicating that feat here this season as well. To get to the Finals last year, Denver steamrolled the Lakers in four straight. This season the teams meet in the first round. The Lakers got past New Orleans in the Play In Tournament, and we think they're going to be fatigued here now in the thin air of Denver. The Nuggets took all four of those Playoff games over the Lakers last year, but by a combined 24 points. The Lakers have had a few days off after the win in New Orleans, but they lost all three games to the Nuggets in the regular season. With the home side looking to clamp down and control the tempo and pace of this one, we're expecting a very defensive affair right out of the gates and considering all of the situational factors listed above here, everything does indeed point to the "under" as the correct call as far as the total is concerned in our opinion!
