The Nuggets are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The Trail Blazers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 21-7 ATS in their last 28 Wednesday games. The under is 4-0 in Nuggets last 4 road games. The under is 5-1 in Trail Blazers last 6 overall. The Nuggets are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Portland.

The Denver Nuggets are still rolling despite the loss of Jamal Murray, and they actually play some of their best ball on the road where they win by an average of five points and shoot 49.6 percent from the field. The Portland Trail Blazers put a lot of energy into last nights loss to the Clippers, and now they have to play on the end of a back to back without Lillard. Tough spot for the Trail Blazers. Give me the Nuggets and the reasonable chalk.
