Jamal Murray and the Nuggets managed to force a Game 6, but they will have to be at their very best again if they want to push this series to a decider.

Denver obviously has the weapons but will need to maintain a high level of defensive intensity throughout the 48 minutes to beat a rampaging Jazz that have surprised many in the first round.

BEST: Spread
Nuggets (-110*) +2.0 is a 53% chance to cover

Denver took claimed the win in Game 5 thanks to a great defensive effort and some fantastic offense from Jamal Murray. Our projections have them putting in another solid performance in Game Six, with Denver at the spread being the top pick in this game. Currently, they are a 53 percent chance to cover.

Moneyline
Jazz (-135*) to win has a 56% probability

Although our model is taking the Nuggets at the spread, the top Moneyline pick in this game is the Jazz. They are just a game away from progressing, and on the back of Donovan Mitchell, have been very impressive throughout the series. Our data suggests they are a 55 percent chance of winning this game.

Over/Under
o219.5 (-110*) has a 51% probability

The over/under is a hard bet to hit in the playoffs and this one is no different. The last two games of this series have been over 220 points, and therefore we are leaning towards that trend continuing in Game Six.

Dimers' take-out

This has been an excellent series so far and we expect it to get even better in Game 6. Look for a high-scoring contest that goes right down to the wire. If you're keen to tail any of our picks, you can review the best legal online sportsbooks here.
