Portland Trail Blazers Form

Portland head to Denver looking to pull off an upset after knocking off two big guns from the Eastern Conference.

The Trail Blazers went into those two games in poor form, having lost four of their previous five outings.

They were beaten 134-110 at the Los Angeles Lakers and 111-109 in Oklahoma City, before heading to Houston and recording a 137-131 overtime win.

Portland failed to back that up though, as they lost 116-100 in San Antonio before returning home to lose 104-96 to Chicago.

The Trail Blazers bounced back in style though, following up a 130-104 blowout of Philadelphia with a 119-116 victory over Milwaukee.

Denver Nuggets Form

Denver return home on the back of a loss, but in solid form with seven wins in their last 10 games.

The Nuggets bounced back from a defeat in Utah with a 125-113 home win against New Orleans, which was backed up by a 117-109 victory over Indiana.

They then started a five-game road trip with a 126-121 defeat in Philadelphia, only to respond with a 102-100 win in Boston.

Denver then won 113-104 in Washington and 114-109 in Indiana, before losing 122-84 in New York.

The Nuggets hit back with wins against Philadelphia, 111-105, and Milwaukee, 113-107, but failed to make it three-in-a-row as they went back out on the road and lost 105-100 at Oklahoma City.

Verdict

Portland are full of confidence after a couple of big wins and they have a good recent record against the spread, so give us the Trail Blazers and the points.
