NBA Lines – Bet On Nuggets In Redemption Game

Posted by Brett Nielson on 2/1/2011 10:04:24 PM

After a humiliating loss to the New Jersey Nets, the Denver Nuggets are set to bounce back when they host the Portland Trail Blazers this NBA lines Wednesday.

NBA Lines
(25-22) Portland Trail Blazers at (28-20) Denver Nuggets
Live from Pepsi Center – CO
Tipoff: 9:00 PM EST Wednesday, February 2, 2010

The Denver Nuggets are coming off two days of rest from a brutal five-game road trip in the frigid Midwest. The Nuggets lost at Philadelphia on Sunday and fell 24 hours later to the New Jersey Nets by sixteen points.

However, I see a much different story with Denver returning to the Pepsi Center and having the extra rest.

With one of the most offensively talented rosters, the Nuggets currently hold the rank as the NBA’s most prolific scoring unit.

Thanks to Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith, Chauncey Billups and Nene Hilario, Denver has averaged 107.5 points per game, tops in the NBA lines 2010-11 season.

Their most valuable asset, Carmelo Anthony, was almost involved in a trade that would have sent him to the New Jersey Nets. The 26-year-old small forward is averaging 23.9 points per contest this season.

Next in line for the Nuggets are Chauncey Billups and Nene Hilario. Billups has been scoring slightly more than Nene this NBA lines season (16.3 points per game compared to 15.0 points per game).

However, Nene is finding many ways to prove his worth as one of the best centers in the NBA. The 6’11” center has, by far the best field goal percentage (63.9%) in the league.

When the Portland Trail Blazers walk into the Pepsi Center this NBA lines Wednesday, I think they’ll find out very early why the Denver Nuggets are 20-5 when playing at home.

Brett’s Prediction: Denver Nuggets: 112, Portland Trail Blazers: 99

Nielson Notice: The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging just 93.7 points in road games (25th in the NBA).

NBA Lines Pick: Denver Nuggets
