Basketball betting on Thursday night has the Portland Trail Blazers facing the Denver Nuggets in a TNT nationally televised game.
NBA betting odds favor the Nuggets in what should be an exciting late night game. Let’s take a look at the numbers for the Blazers and the Nuggets. Basketball scheduling information tells us that the Blazers are in the second half of a back-to-back as they played at home last night against Indiana. The Nuggets are also in a back-to-back but a much easier one since it is a first half as they play at Utah tomorrow night.
Basketball betting trends show that the Nuggets have won six of the last ten games against Portland. Denver is 6-4 against the basketball odds in those games. Basketball betting results tell us that the Nuggets have won four of the last five home games against the Blazers. They are 3-2 against the basketball odds in those contests. The teams have played twice so far this season with both teams winning at home. The Blazers won 101-92 while the Nuggets won 97-89 as basketball betting results indicate.
Portland has a big home/road dichotomy this season in basketball betting. They are very solid at home versus the NBA betting number but they struggle on the road. Brandon Roy continues to lead the team in scoring and with a defense that ranks in the Top 10 in the league. That is oftentimes enough to win games and cover the basketball betting number.
Denver has been a solid team at home this season versus the basketball betting odds. The Nuggets have an offense that ranks in the Top 10 in the league as basketball betting stats indicate. Carmelo Anthony leads the team in scoring as NBA betting statistics indicate.
The over/under basketball betting trends show that the last ten meetings have gone 5-5. At Denver, three of the last five games have gone over the NBA betting total.
