Denver Nuggets Betting History

While the odds to win the Northwest may be lower for the Denver Nuggets than that of Oklahoma City for the foreseeable future, the Nuggets figure to consistently be in the mix and challenge for the division annually. However, 2013/14 wasn't their season, ending their run with the lowest record in eleven years. Betting against the spread was hard to pick as they only managed to win 48.15% of the time. Despite the losing record, they scored high in all their games, only scoring less than 90 points in three games. Because of this, sportsbook set the Over/Under stats high, and it was hard to pick which games the Nuggets would do well in. They did better in over betting, but only just, with 51.2%.

2014/2015 Denver Nuggets Schedule

The Denver Nuggets' 2014-15 campaign opens at home for the first time since 2010 on Wednesday, October 29 and in a matchup that could have playoff implications in the West, the Nuggets close the season at Golden State on April 15. The Nuggets play Dallas, Golden State, Memphis and Phoenix three times and all other West teams four times. The Mavs, Warriors and Grizzlies made the playoffs last season, while the Suns missed the postseason by one game. The Denver Nuggets are awkwardly positioned as it relates to prominence amongst NBA fans so ticket sales are often poor.

Denver Nuggets History

The Denver Nuggets were established in 1967 and joined the NBA after the ABN-NBA merger in 1976. The Nuggets experienced success in their early years in the NBA and were regular playoff qualifiers in the late 1970s and 1980s. However, the franchise was never able to make a deep run in the NBA playoffs and have never played in the NBA finals. The Nuggets struggled in the 1990s and failed to qualify for the playoffs from 1995 to 2004. The Nuggets drafted Carmelo Anthony in 2003 and their fortunes were instantly turned around. They have not missed the playoffs since 2004 but even with a number of star players have failed to win an elusive Western Conference title.

Denver Nuggets Star Player: Kenneth Faried

Kenneth Faried was selected 22nd overall in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets. Before that he was a center at Morehead State University, where he was named Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year twice and an All-American in 2011. He got little playing time in his rookie season, but after another of Nuggets got injured his minutes increased. Faried's style of playing impressed the Nuggets coaching staff and he has been the Nuggets' starting power forward ever since. He finished 3rd in NBA Rookie of the Year voting for the 2011–12 NBA season. Faried was the MVP of the 2013 BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, where he recorded a double-double with 40 points on 18-for-22 shooting and 10 rebounds.

Denver Nuggets Star From the Past: Alex English

Alex English was selected in the second round of the 1976 NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. English spent two seasons in Milwaukee before joining the Indiana Pacers in 1978 and the Denver Nuggets in 1980. English had a great deal of success at the Nuggets and was one of the leading scorers in the NBA during the 1980s. He was selected as an NBA All-Star on eight occasions and was the NBA scoring champion in 1983. English led the Nuggets to nine consecutive playoff appearances but could not lead the team on a deep playoff run in a period in which the NBA was filled with star players. English left the Nuggets in 1990 and is now an assistant coach at the Sacramento Kings.

Denver Nuggets Head Coach: Brian Shaw

Brian Shaw was hired as head coach of the Denver Nuggets in 2013, his first head coach gig. From 2005 to 2013 he had worked as an assistant HC with the Lakers and Pacers. Shaw was a highly respected assistant coach by other NBA coaches as well as the media. His first season with the Nuggets was less-than-stellar but he can hopefully improve in 2014-2015.
