Denver Nuggets Player Stats
The 2020-21 season for the Denver Nuggets likely brought mixed emotions for fans. On one hand, it was an extremely successful year for the team, and center Nikola Jokic brought home the franchise's first ever NBA MVP award. On the other hand, star point guard Jamal Murray went down with a torn ACL mid-way through the season.
Murray will be back at some point, though, and Jokic isn't going anywhere, which will set up the Nuggets to continue their success for years to come. See more information on the Nuggets, including their full schedule, odds, injuries, and much more.
Denver Nuggets Point Spreads
Just because a team has a winning record doesn't mean they're automatically good bets every night. That's because most bets are against expectations, and those were high for the Nuggets in 2020-21. In fact, Denver actually lost money for spread bettors with a 34-38 record on the year.
A spread bet is a super popular wager that's all based on how much a team will win or lose by. Let's look at an example.
- Denver Nuggets (-6.5)
- Minnesota Timberwolves (+6.5)
In this case, the Nuggets have a minus sign, which means they're favored to win by 6.5 points. If you bet on Denver, you'd win only if the team beat the Wolves by seven or more points. If the Wolves won outright or the Nuggets merely won by six or fewer points, those Denver spread bets would lose.
Denver Nuggets Moneylines
Moneyline bets are also quite common in the betting world, and those are simply bets on which team will win the game regardless of margin. If you bet on the Nuggets moneyline, if they won the game then you'd cash your bet whether it was a nail-biter or a blowout.
Let's look at another example:
- Oklahoma City Thunder +190
- Denver Nuggets -240
As with spread bets, the favorite has a minus sign and the underdog a plus sign. The American odds can be confusing at first, but think of them in increments of $10 or $100. A Nuggets bet would require $24 to win $10, whereas a Thunder bet would win $19 for every $10 wagered.
Denver Nuggets Over/Unders
While the Nuggets weren't profitable for a spread perspective, they did make money for over bettors. Over/under bets, also called totals, are wagers on the total point output in a game by both teams. Say the Nuggets played the Utah Jazz and the total was set at 213 points. If you bet the over, you'd win at 214 or more points by both teams. If it finished at 213 or lower, under bettors would win. If it landed at exactly 213, it's called a push and no one loses.
Denver Nuggets Props
What's more fun than betting on the MVP of the league? If you want to make some Nikola Jokic-specific wagers, those are called player props, which are simply bets on the performance of just one player. For example, some Nuggets props include Jokic to post a triple-double, Jamal Murray to score over/under 21 points, and more.
The Nuggets fell short of the Northwest Division title in 2020-21, finishing five games behind the Utah Jazz. If you think they'll get the crown next season, you can place a bet on that happening. Those are called futures bets, which means they settle at a later date than a single game. Some other Nuggets futures include Nikola Jokic to repeat as the MVP, Denver to win the title, and more.
