ARE the Denver Nuggets a realistic contender for the 2018/19 NBA title?
The question must be asked of the Western Conference leaders, who sit at 20-9 after bright start to the season in which they’ve shown a roster with depth and a starting unit capable of mixing it with the best.
While the Nuggets have been a solid playoff contender for the past few years, they’ve taken a jump this season behind the incredible play of center Nikola Jokic, who is averaging 17.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 7.5 assists, making him an unselfish, nightly triple double threat that creates opportunities for his teammates.
While the Houston Rockets have dropped significantly and the Golden State Warriors are still not looking like the same team they were last season, there is scope for the Nuggets to maintain their grip on the top spot out West.
The boys from Denver will headline our parlay betting today, as they take on Western Conference rival, the plucky Dallas Mavericks.
We’ll also take a look at the impressive Indiana Pacers, Lebron’s Lakers and the revitalised Wizards.

Tuesday, December 18 NBA parlay analysis
Tuesday’s slate of games may look like a layup, but we’re not expecting anything to come easy.
The Pacers should get the job done over Cleveland, but the $1.10 may be harder to earn than you’d think, while the Wizards have shown strong form of late behind key man John Wall, who should prove way too strong for the young Trae Young and his Atlanta Hawks teammates.
Coming off a disappointing loss to the Wizards in their last outing, the Lakers and Lebron James will be out for revenge against the plucky Nets — the $1.77 provides some real value here if the Lakers play to form.
To cap things off, we’re all about the Nuggets to breeze by Dallas.
