The Nuggets have been excellent against the NBA odds at home recently and they will need to have success in Denver if they are to stay in this series.
NBA Playoffs odds have seen home court matter a great deal to the Lakers and the Nuggets. Los Angeles has been excellent at home in NBA Playoffs odds as have the Nuggets. Denver has not lost at home in more than two months. That record will be tested though in NBA Playoffs odds in this series. The Lakers were the best road team in the NBA this season at 29-12. Denver was a very good home team as we have noted, going 33-8 during the regular season.
In this series the Lakers have held their own in Denver. The teams have split their last ten meetings in Denver as NBA Playoffs odds statistics indicate. The Lakers are an even better 6-4 against the NBA odds in those games. The teams met twice in Denver during the regular season and split those two games. The Lakers won 104-97 back in November while the Nuggets won 90-79 in late February. Both of those games went under the NBA odds total. In fact, the last five games between the two teams in Denver have gone under the total. That includes both games versus the NBA Playoffs odds last year when the Lakers swept the Nuggets in four straight, winning both games in Denver to end the NBA Playoffs odds series.
The Lakers would seem to be a team that goes over the NBA Playoffs odds total on a regular basis but that is not the case. During the regular season the Lakers were just barely an over team at home and on the road they were 20-20-1 in terms of over/under numbers as NBA Playoffs odds statistics tell us. With an offense that was third in the league and an average defense, those numbers are a little surprising. Denver as 6th in the NBA and offense and had a below average defense yet they were not a team that went over the total either with regularity this season. Even in the first game of this NBA Playoffs odds series when Kobe Bryant had 40 points and Carmelo Anthony had 39, the game went under the NBA odds.
