The 1-0 Warriors look to stay perfect against the 0-1 Nuggets, who suffered an embarrassing loss to the Utah Jazz on opening night. Denver is a trendy pick to come out of the Western Conference now that the team is healthy, but it'll have to go through Golden State first.

Tonight will be a good early season test for both teams to see where they are in this new year. BetSided has already previewed this game, so let's look at the best props on the board.

Best Prop Bets For Nuggets-Warriors

  • Nikola Jokic OVER 26.5 Points
  • Michael Porter Jr. OVER 2.5 Threes
  • Steph Curry 5+ Threes

Nikola Jokic OVER 26.5 Points

While Jamal Murray is still playing his way into shape, Jokic will have to continue to carry the scoring load. There isn’t anybody on the Warriors that can play Joker straight up, which means that he’ll get whatever he wants on the inside. Jokic averaged 28 points per game against the Warriors last regular season. Why would anything change now?

Michael Porter Jr. OVER 2.5 Threes

MPJ may still be working his way back into the swing of things, but he can still shoot the ball well. He went 2-for-4 from downtown in his first game back, and I’m banking on him taking more and more threes as the season continues. He’s a lifetime 42% three-point shooter. If the shots are there, I’m going to trust he’ll make them. 

Steph Curry 5+ Threes (+140) 

Curry was off from three against the Lakers, but that’s okay. He’s still the greatest shooter who ever lived and he still commands our respect from deep. Curry took 13 threes against the Lakers. If he’s taking upwards of 11 threes tonight, I want some higher end outcomes for Curry.

Even if he has another off-night, the sheer amount of threes is worth taking a chance on.
