NBA Betting – New Orleans Hornets at Denver Nuggets

NBA betting on Thanksgiving Day doesn’t end until very late as the Denver Nuggets host the New Orleans Hornets in what should be a great game.

Pro basketball betting amblers can watch this game on TNT.  It is an excellent NBA betting matchup between two of the better teams in the Western Conference.

NBA betting schedule information shows that this is the second game of a three-game road trip for New Orleans.  It is also the first of a back-to-back as they are in Portland tomorrow according to the NBA betting schedule.  NBA betting history shows that the Hornets and Nuggets have split their last 10 meetings overall.  New Orleans is 6-4 against the pro basketball betting number in those meetings.  Last year the teams met three times, twice in Denver and the Hornets won two of the three according to NBA betting results.  Pro basketball betting stats show that the teams split their games in Denver with the Nuggets winning 105-99 and the Hornets winning 117-93.

The Hornets are led by their superstar point guard Chris Paul who leads the team in scoring according to NBA betting stats.  What might surprise some pro basketball betting gamblers is that the Hornets are in the Top 5 in defense in the league according to NBA betting numbers.  On the other side, Denver has not normally been known for defense but since Allen Iverson was traded that has changed.  The Nuggets are playing far better as a team both offensively and defensively since they got Chauncey Billups in the Iverson trade.  Billups has been a welcome addition and he provides a nice one-two punch with Carmelo Anthony.

Gamblers looking at the NBA betting total might notice that two of the last three meetings between the two teams have gone under.  At Denver, three of the last five games have gone under the basketball betting line.
