“Denver” vs “Portland”: will the favorite take advantage of the opponent's problems?

On August 7, “Denver” will play its match against “Portland”. Will the “Trail Blazers” be able to stop the “Nuggets”? - read our prediction.

Denver Nuggets

“Denver” has played its last games with a suboptimal roster. Will Barton and Harry Harris are currently in the team's infirmary. Jamal Murray is also injured. However, there is a chance that he will appear on the floor in this match. This will be known closer to the match.

Despite the fact that the leading players of the “nuggets” were absent, the wards of Mike Malone managed to beat “Oklahoma” (121-113) and “San Antonio” (132-126). Michael Porter and Nikola Jokic "made the weather" in those matches. It looks like these two will be team leaders in the near future.

Portland Trail Blazers

“Portland” continues its battle to get into the playoff zone. So far, Stotts' wards are only ninth in the West, but they are one point away from eighth-ranked “Memphis”. The “Trail Blazers” have played regularly in the playoffs recently, so they are trying to do everything they can to make sure this season is no exception.

In their last game, “Portland” unexpectedly beat “Houston” (110-102). Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Yusuf Nurkic offset all the efforts of James Harden and the company and brought their team an important victory.

  • The “Nuggets” has lost 5 of their last 10 games.
  • The “Trail Blazers” has won 4 of their last 10 games.

 

Our Prediction

Due to problems with the roster, bookmakers assign "Denver" the role of an underdog. But Malone's players have proved that they can play well without their leaders. Wins over “Oklahoma” and “San Antonio” confirm this. We believe that the “nuggets” will definitely give the fight to the favorite, so we suggest playing a plus odds on them.

Our prediction is – odds for “Denver” (+5.5) points for 1.70 CF
