Bet Tonight's Nuggets vs. Blazers Game

Joffrey Lauvergne is not expected to play tonight for the Nuggets due to a back injury. That means Denver will roll with a frontcourt that features Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic. Gary Harris, however, has been upgraded to probable despite battling a groin injury.

On the other side, only Chris Kaman is listed as questionable for the Blazers. But he isn't a regular part of Portland's rotation so this isn't a concern for Blazers backers. Damian Lillard scored 31 points during the tam's 106-105 loss to the Wolves on Saturday and should be sharp tonight as he and his teammates are well rested.

NBA PICKS: The Nuggets have failed to cover in four of their last five games and are 8-19 against the number in their last 27 games playing on two days of rest. The Blazers, meanwhile, are 11-3 at the betting window in their last 14 games following a loss and have covered in four of their last five games playing on three or more days of rest as well.
