Best Nuggets Predictions

Expect Denver Nuggets betting to be available for the following types of wagers this coming season:

  • MoneyLines – moneylines are the simplest form of wagering, allowing you to pick the winners of a matchup.
  • Point Spreads – spreads look to even out matchups by placing a handicap on the favorite. A handicap is provided in points. If you’re betting to ‘cover the spread,’ you are wagering on the favorite to beat the underdog by more than the handicap. Betting ‘against the spread’ refers to placing a bet on the underdog to not lose by more than the handicap.
  • Over/Under – over-under bets allow you to wager on whether the total points for a game will be over or under a given number. The number is provided by the sportsbook.
  • Outright – outright bets give you the chance to bet on the overall winner of the NBA Championship. Even now outright bets are available at most sportsbooks.

History of Nuggets

Historically, the Nuggets have been one of the less successful teams in the Western Conference Semifinals. They have been able, however, to string together a number of solid regular seasons during the 1980s and from 2004-2013.

The only final the team has been able to reach was the ABA Championship title in 1976, where they lost to the New York Nets. With one of their strongest teams to date, the Nuggets seem primed to make a run for the championship in the next few years.

Team Creation

The Nuggets franchise was created in 1967 as the Denver Larks but was quickly renamed the Denver Rockets. It wasn’t until 1974 that the team name was changed to the Nuggets.

Best Seasons

The team has yet to win an NBA Championship but have been to the finals of the ABA Championship once in 1976.

Their next best season came last year when the Nuggets made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals but came short against the Warriors.

The team has been able to win their division four times since the early 2000s. (2006, 2009, 2010, 2019)

Most Famous Players

The team has had a number of great players over the years. Two of the most notable names are:

  • Alex English – 8-time All-Star and inductee to the Basketball Hall Of Fame in 1997. English is widely regarded as one of the most gifted offensive players to ever play the game.
  • Dan Issel – Hall of Famer, Issel was one of the more prolific scorers of all-time. Upon his retirement, only three players had scored more professional points.
