Nuggets Good Bet Against Win Total

The Nuggets have made clearing their preseason Colorado sports betting win total a rite of passage, doing so 10 times since 2010-11, including in each of the last seven regular seasons.

Last year, the Mike Malone-coached club cleared its win total (51.5) by 1.5, while the 2021-22 squad cleared the mark by a half-game, finishing 48-34 after entering the year with a total of 47.5. The last Nuggets team that failed to clear its preseason win total was the 2014-15 team that went 30-52 after entering the season with a win mark of 42.

The Nuggets open the season against the Lakers at Ball Arena later this month, trying to become the first team since Golden State in 2017 and 2018 to bring home the Larry O’Brien trophy in consecutive seasons. With Colorado sports betting promo codes, bettors can get -400 odds on Denver to win the Northwest Division and +250 to win the Western Conference title.
