Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets Betting Pick
This game will take place at 10:00 PM ET in Ball Arena.
Why bet the Nuggets:
✅ The Portland Trail Blazers looked downright tired against the Suns and a meeting on the road with the Denver Nuggets isn’t a recipe to turn things around. Nikola Jokic is one of the best players in the league and he’s given the Blazers problems numerous times over the last few seasons.
✅ The Denver Nuggets rank 3rd in FG% at 48.4% while the Blazers sit 27th at 44.3%. It’s hard to keep up on offense when you make close to 5% fewer of your shots. Jokic isn’t the only reason either with Jamal Murray starting to heat up in a big way.
✅ The Blazers also don’t share the ball much, ranking dead last in assists per game at 19.9. They do play a lot of isolation basketball and it’s not a good idea against a team with solid defenders. The Nuggets average 26.5 assists per game, to compare.
✅ Nuggets are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss.
The Pick: Nuggets -5.5
