Denver at Portland: Odds, picks and betting tips

Moneyline : The Trail Blazers (-121) are slight home favorites in this contest over the Nuggets (-100). While there is value on both sides, consider taking Portland at home in this playoff rematch from last season. New to sports betting? A $10 bet on the Trail Blazers returns a $8.26 profit with a victory.

Line : Portland (-2.5) is a basket favorite over Denver (+2.5) at home, and that feels just about right. These two teams played several close contests in the playoffs, with three of their six playoff games being decided by four or fewer points. However, I'm taking the Trail Blazers to cover at home against what many people believe is the best team in the West in the Nuggets.

Over/under : The point total for this matchup is set at 211.5 points, which feels somewhat high for the first game of the season. However, these are two teams that can shoot the basketball and aren't afraid to shoot a ton of threes. Look for the OVER to hit late in this contest, probably via free throws from the Trail Blazers.
