With his prop line at 25.5, our model indicates that taking the over is the way to go as we project him to end up with 26. We foresee him having a field goal percentage of 55.6% and connecting on one three.

  • The Prop: Nikola Jokic Over 25.5 Points (-105)

Heat vs. Nuggets Predictions

The Heat come in as the underdog at +4, making them our top choice on the point spread. We not only expect them to cover the spread but also believe they have a strong chance of winning the game outright, especially if you’re aiming for a higher moneyline payout.

Right now, the over/under line for the game is sitting at 215 and given that our model is projecting 224 points between the teams, we like the over.
