Basketball Betting – New Orleans vs. Denver Nuggets

Basketball betting on Saturday should be intense as the Denver Nuggets host the New Orleans Hornets.

These two teams are among the best in the Western Conference and the pro basketball betting odds indicate as much. The matchup of Chris Paul versus Chauncey Billups should be exciting to watch.

Basketball betting information shows that both teams are in back-to-back situations tonight. Basketball betting info tells us that the Hornets are in the second game of a four-game road trip having played in Portland last night. The Nuggets are in a difficult basketball betting situation as well. They played in Oklahoma City last night as basketball betting scheduling info shows and are now starting at seven-game homestand.

Basketball betting trends show that the Hornets have won six of the last ten games against Denver and they are an even better 7-3 against the pro basketball betting number in those games. Pro basketball betting results indicate that at Denver the Hornets have actually won four of the last six games between the two teams including a 105-101 victory in late November.

There are mixed basketball betting trends on the total in this game. Six of the last ten games have gone over the basketball odds but at Denver the over/under is 3-3 versus the basketball betting pointspread. The Hornets have been a solid under team versus the basketball betting number this season due in large part to their defense which is ranked in the Top 5 in the league.

Denver is not known for their defense as pro basketball betting stats show, but they are much better since trading Allen Iverson away. Their offense is still potent, ranking in the Top 10 in the NBA with Carmelo Anthony leading the way as basketball betting stats indicate. The matchup of Denver’s offense against the Hornets’ defense should be fun to watch.

The Nuggets and Hornets game should be one of the better ones on the Saturday basketball betting schedule. You don’t want to miss out so make sure to open an account at SBG Global today and take a look at all of the basketball odds.
