The Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Trail Blazers last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The Trail Blazers are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Denver.

The Portland Trail Blazers are coming off back to back heartbreaking losses to OKC, and it's the type of results that could carry over to another road game. The Denver Nuggets are a very tough out at home, where they win by an average of 9.5 points and shoot 51.3 percent from the field. Betting against the Nuggets at home usually doesn't pay off. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Nuggets.
