Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets 2/4/2020 Betting Odds
Portland Trail Blazers Betting
The Portland Trail Blazers are making a big run for the playoffs with Damian Lillard producing a Kobe-esque type of performance for the past games. CJ McCollum is back in action after missing a couple of games but he didn’t miss a beat and has complimented Lillard’s stellar play. Carmelo Anthony came in this December and has become a very vital cog into the system of the Blazers. With Nurkic out, Whiteside has become a very huge piece for them as he produces 16 points, 14.1 rebounds and 3.1 blocks every night. Against the Denver Nuggets, Whiteside is the x-factor on how he would be able to contain the big guy on the court.
Players to watch: D. Lillard PG 48 GP 48 GS 37.1 MIN 29.8 PTS 0.5 OR 3.9 DR 4.4 REB 7.9 AST 1 STL 0.3 BLK 2.8 TO 1.7 PF 2.8 AST/TO 27.44 PER

Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets have been clicking recently and before their overtime loss against the Detroit Pistons, they had won four of their last five games. The team had been suffering from injuries from its key starters from Paul Millsap, Mason Plumble and Jamaal Murray. Another blow to them has been the inconsistency of Michael Porter Jr. who seems to be in-and-out of the roster as well. They will need Will Barton to step up along with Gary Harris and Jerami Grant. This is going to be a tough game for the Nuggets and limiting the production of Lillard and McCollum is going to be in the minds of the coaches.
Players to Watch: N. Jokic C 49 GP 49 GS 32 MIN 19.9 PTS 2.4 OR 7.7 DR 10 REB 6.6 AST 1.1 STL 0.6 BLK 2.9 TO 3.1 PF 2.3 AST/TO 24.15 PER
