Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Pick Prediction 8/17/2020

Jazz at Nuggets—NBA pick is Denver Nuggets -3. Nuggets have won and covered all three against the Jazz this season. Like the depth on this Nuggets team and the ability of Nikola Jokic to get inside position for shots around the basket. He is making 52.8% of his shots. Nuggets fourth best offensive efficient team in the bubble averaging 118.2 points per 100 possessions. Jazz bottom third in offensive efficiency. Nuggets fourth best shooting team in the league. Concern about the back injury for Rudy Gobert and how that impacts his abilities on the court in the opener. Play Denver -3.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Pick Prediction 8/17/2020

Nets vs. Raptors—NBA free pick is Brooklyn Nets +10. Remember there is no home court in the playoffs as these games are played on a neutral court in Orlando. Like the energy and confidence, the Nets are playing with. They have covered four straight and six of their past seven in the bubble. They have a huge scare to Portland dropping a one point decision in a game the Trailblazers needed to win to make the play in series. Toronto has not seen this Nets team in the bubble.
