The Nuggets are in Cleveland for a Friday-night matchup with the Cavaliers on Friday night.

Denver has been solid, staying in playoff contention thanks to the impressive play of superstar center Nikola Jokic. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, have played solid defense while fielding easily the worst offense in the league.

Cleveland has made many headlines as of late, most notably with the Cavs shutting down center Andre Drummond with hopes of trading him before the March 25 deadline. On the court, the Cavaliers have lost eight straight, which is currently the longest losing streak in the NBA.

Denver has failed to cover in two of its last three games. However, the last time these teams met, Denver comfortably covered. The Nuggets were 9.5-point favorites back on Feb. 10 and won by 38.

Sharps seem to think the Nuggets will be able to produce a similar result, a theory that is supported by our PRO Report.
