Thunder vs. Nuggets prediction and odds for Sunday, January 22 (Lay the points with Denver)

The Denver Nuggets could be without their back-to-back NBA MVP, Nikola Jokic, when they take the floor against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.

Even with that being the case, Western Conference-leading Nuggets are set as favorites against the Thunder tonight.

Let’s dive into the odds for the game and then I’ll give you my best bet.

Thunder vs. Nuggets odds, spread, and total

Thunder vs. Nuggets prediction and pick

Even with the plethora of injuries the Nuggets are dealing with, I still like them to cover this spread against the Thunder.

When Jokic missed the team’s last game against the Pacers on Friday night, the team still had an effective field goal percentage of 69.9%. If they can shoot that well without their star player, their opponents are going to be in trouble.

I also expect the Nuggets to dominate the Thunder on the board, who are 26th in the NBA in rebounding rate.

I’ll back Denver to win and cover in this Western Conference showdown.
