Handicapping the NBA: Monday Picks

This article is part of our Handicapping the NBA series.

Richaun Holmes under 9.5 rebounds (-134) at NOP – DraftKings (3:28 PM CT)

The Pelicans remain the best rebounding team in the NBA, allowing just 40.5 boards per game to opponents. Holmes has averaged 10.1 boards across his past 10 games, but I think Steven Adams can limit him to below that number. 

Nick Whalen

Denver Nuggets -4.5 (-112) at GSW – DraftKings (2:21 PM CT)

Admittedly, this is a tough spot for the Nuggets on the latter end of a home/road back-to-back set, but I like Denver to bounce back after a massive collapse down the stretch Sunday versus Boston. Jamal Murray could miss another game, but Murray or no Murray, the Nuggets' roster is deeper, more talented and more consistent. On the year, Denver is 14-11 ATS on the road and 11-7 ATS as a road favorite.
