New Orleans Hornets vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Playoffs Odds

NBA Playoffs betting odds have the Denver Nuggets favored on Wednesday in Game 5 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal against the New Orleans Hornets.

If the Hornets are to win this NBA Playoffs betting series they have to find a way to win in Denver and in the first two games of this series they weren’t even close in NBA Playoffs odds.

NBA Playoffs betting action should be intense in this Game 5 matchup that can be seen on TNT television.  The first two games of this NBA Playoffs betting series in Denver were dominated by the Nuggets as Chauncey Billups ran roughshod over the Hornets.  New Orleans has really not been a very good road team in the past but on occasion they can at least have a shot.  They have lost four of the last five games overall at Denver but until these first two NBA Playoffs betting matchups, the games were close.  In the regular season they lost by five at Denver in January and they actually won 105-101 back in November but that was when the Nuggets were a much different team.

Denver was a solid team at home this season both straight up and against the spread as NBA Playoffs odds statistics show.  New Orleans will have to play a very good game to have a chance to win and cover the NBA Playoffs odds.  That really doesn’t seem that likely in NBA Playoffs betting considering the Hornets have been a poor road team for much of the season.  New Orleans really only has Chris Paul to rely upon for their scoring and he is just not enough considering the Nuggets have Billups and Carmelo Anthony although Anthony is a little dinged up.

The last four matchups in Denver between the two teams including both of the first two NBA Playoffs betting matchups in this series have gone over the total.  Although both NBA Playoffs betting matchups went over the NBA Playoffs odds in Denver it was just barely.  The Nuggets won 108-93 just going over the NBA Playoffs betting total of 200.5 and they won 113-84 which just barely cleared the NBA Playoffs betting total of 195.
