Denver Nuggets - NBA Western Conference Outright @ 9/1 - BET NOW
The Nuggets have never managed a Conference title but this season looks to be a great opportunity as Golden State Warriors, who have dominated in recent years, are beset by injuries and in a period of transition.
Los Angeles duo the Lakers and Clippers, as well as Houston Rockets, will still take some beating but Denver are a solid unit who can beat anyone on their day - as they proved with a convincing 128-104 win at the Lakers just a few weeks ago.

The Mavs are one of the surprise packages in the NBA this season and they look on course for a playoff spot with a 23-13 record in sixth place in the West.
Houston (24-11) lead the way in the Southwest Division but Dallas are hot on their heels.
Dallas Mavericks vs Denver Nuggets Team News
The hosts have some big injury worries ahead of the visit of Denver and Latvian center Kristaps Porzingis looks set to miss out again with a knee injury.
Starting guard Tim Hardaway Jr, who is averaging 13.8 points per game, is unavailable with a knee injury, while fellow guard Ryan Broekhoff is also sidelined with a knee problem.
Denver have no confirmed absentees but they do have two players rated as questionable. Four-time All-Star forward Paul Millsap is a concern with a knee injury and Jamal Murray has a finer issue, although he did feature in the win over Atlanta Hawks last time out.
Dallas Mavericks vs Denver Nuggets Prediction
The Mavs have been better on their travels this season and at their American Airlines Center home, they have a modest 11-8 record.
Denver are 10-7 overall on the road and have managed four wins in their last six away games.
The Nuggets should be able to edge this clash given Dallas' injury issues, and they will be looking for another big performance from key man Nikola Jokic after he weighed in with a career-high 47 points in the win over the Hawks.
