The Nuggets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Trail Blazers last 7 overall. The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

This line tells me oddsmakers believe Jokic will not be playing for the Nuggets. If that's the case, it's hard to back the Nuggets here with any confidence. The Portland Trail Blazers are playing their best ball of the season, and they're winning at home by an average of 11.2 points while allowing 43.9 percent shooting from the field. Assuming Jokic doesn't play, I'd lay the buckets with the Trail Blazers at home.
