The Denver Nuggets are playing the better ball right now overall, but they've been shaky on the road, where they have issues defensively and lose by an average of 4.1 points. The Portland Trail Blazers do their best work at home and in the favorite role, where they win by an average of 4.9 points and shoot 48.3 percent from the field. Near pick em spot, I'll lean toward the Trail Blazers at home.
