NBA Playoffs betting on Monday includes a very important game between the Denver Nuggets and New Orleans Hornets.
Oftentimes a Game 4 in NBA Playoffs betting will get overlooked but remember that either the series will be tied 2-2 or one team will have a 3-1 lead. New Orleans is favored in NBA Playoffs odds for this Monday matchup.
NBA Playoffs betting stats tell us that Denver has done okay through the years at New Orleans. That is somewhat surprising considering the Nuggets are a better home team than on the road. It just seems that since Chauncey Billups arrived the Nuggets are more focused and intent on winning in NBA Playoffs betting. Even on the road the Nuggets are a threat in NBA Playoffs odds.
Denver had an offense during the regular season that ranked in the Top 10 in the league but their defense struggled. In NBA Playoffs betting the Nuggets have turned up the defensive intensity and look like a team that might be able to give the Lakers some trouble in NBA Playoffs odds. The Nuggets have multiple players that can impact NBA Playoffs odds including Billups and Carmelo Anthony. It is amazing how much one player can impact a team’s chances in the NBA Playoffs but that is what Billups has done for Denver.
New Orleans is all about Chris Paul in NBA Playoffs betting. When he has a big game they are a serious threat in NBA Playoffs betting. When he struggles they are almost a sure loser in NBA Playoffs betting. New Orleans had a defense that was ranked in the Top 5 in the league this season so they can make defensive stops that can get them some success in NBA Playoffs betting. The problem for the Hornets was on offense and that problem continues in NBA Playoffs betting. Other than Paul the Hornets don’t have a lot of offensive weapons. It also doesn’t help that New Orleans had a lot of injuries down the stretch and lost their cohesiveness.
Earlier this season Denver and New Orleans split their two games at New Orleans with the Nuggets winning 101-88 while the Hornets won 94-81. Both of those games went under the total.
