Before making any Warriors vs. Nuggets picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 11 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 48-24 roll on all top-rated NBA picks, returning almost $2,000. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows the Warriors are leading the NBA in point differential and win-loss record, dominating the competition. Golden State is a top-five team in offense and defense, out-scoring opponents by more than 10 points per 100 possessions. The Warriors average 27.8 assists per game while shooting 56.5 percent on 2-point shots on offense. On defense, the Warriors lead the NBA in field-goal percentage allowed (42.7 percent) with the No. 1 mark in assists allowed (21.4 per game) to opponents.
The model also knows the Nuggets have home-court advantage and several key strengths. Denver is a top-six team in the NBA in 2-point accuracy and assists this season. The Nuggets also make more than 46 percent of field goal attempts with only 13.6 turnovers per game. On defense, no team allows fewer second-chance points (10.8 per game) than Denver, and limiting the Warriors to one shot per possession is critical.
