Why Bet on the Portland Trail Blazers?
The Trail Blazers want a back to back win with hopes ending this series back home in a few days. This past Saturday, it seemed their game plan worked and took down the Nuggets by 20 points. They are currently averaging 115.5 points per game, with a 47.9% shooting rate and they are also averaging 40.4% of their shots from the three point line and 83.5% form the free throw line.
On the defensive side they’ve allowed 113 points per game, giving their opponents an average 45.9% of effectiveness when shooting and have averaged 42 rebounds per game. They aren’t bad in the defense, but not completely solid or consistent. If they are able to consolidate the defense tonight, they can definitely go back home with just a victory to go.
Why Bet on the Denver Nuggets?
The home team is looking to get back on track and take the lead after the game clock goes off the board. They need to make some adjustments if they plan to take that lead. Game 4 was the example of that. Despite having scored more than 120 points and only allowing 46 points in the paint combined in the last two games, that wasn’t the case from last Saturday.
Denver currently has a shooting rate of 38.4% from the three point line and 78.2% from the free throw spot. They are averaging 43.8 rebounds per game, allowing 40.4% for the opponents to shoot from beyond the arc. They definitely have a good offense, but if they let go on the defense like they did in Game 4, they will head into Colorado with a lot of pressure.

Trail Blazers vs. Nuggets Expert Betting Prediction
Like I mentioned in the beginning, this series is hard to pin point which teams has the better chances. They both have played pretty similar and consistency hasn’t been key for either team. Nevertheless, Portland seems to be putting all the pieces together after their recent win. They will looking to do the same tonight in Denver, unless the Nuggets wake up and keep on going back and forth with the wins.
