The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 13-6-1 in Nuggets last 20 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Trail Blazers last 4 home games. The Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Denver Nuggets are going to be big favorites for obvious reasons, but they're not a team that blows the doors off teams most nights, and they're on the end of a back to back. The Nuggets only win on the road by an average of 0.4 points. The Portland Trail Blazers have the rest advantage, they're at home, and they've been a lot more competitive lately despite all of their injuries. This is a lot of points. I'll take a shot with the Portland Trail Blazers at home.
