The Trail Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 11-5 in Trail Blazers last 16 overall. The over is 38-17-2 in Nuggets last 57 overall. The Trail Blazers are 5-12-1 ATS in the last 18 meetings.

The Portland Trail Blazers are coming off back to back losses where the defense didn't look good, and they're still a banged up basketball team, something playing on the end of a back to back doesn't help. We're sure to see some tired legs from these Trail Blazers. The Denver Nuggets are starting to heat up offensively with 50.4 percent shooting in their last five games and they win at home by an average of 5.3 points. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Nuggets at home.
