Prediction

The Nuggets have been on fire offensively and have one of the best records at home as they have lost only 3 games in Denver. The Trail Blazers were on fire in their 2 games against the mavericks as they scored an average of 138 points per game but they are allowing a lot of points as well. They have been struggling on the road and are  0-5 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Denver. However, they get here with some momemtum and full healthy so I'll take the points with the Blazers.
