December 15 NBA Action: Portland Trail Blazers @ Denver Nuggets


Portland Trail Blazers o109.5 (-110)

December 15, 2016, 6:00PM PST

Pepsi Center, Denver Colorado

We like Portland to beat the team score tonight. The Blazers are averaging about 110 PPG (108 on the road) on the season, good for sixth most prolific team in the League honors. The Trail Blazers are as efficient as they are productive, ranking eighth in True Shooting Percentage, Offensive Efficiency and Effective Field Goal Percentage. From a betting trends perspective, Portland's O/U is 18-9 overall, including runs of 5-3 as the road dog, 7-5 coming off a win and 13-4 following a night off.

We expect the Nuggets lax defense to help Portland exceed the number. Denver is 24th in Defensive Efficiency, 26th in Points Allowed and 25th in Opponents Shooting Percentage. Also supporting our view, the Mile High crew plays at a fast pace (suggesting more Portland possessions) and commits more turnovers per game on average than all but three NBA teams.

Happy betting!!
