Until we find out the status of F Danilo Gallinari, the NBA odds are going to stay off the board. Regardless as to whether Denver’s leading scorer is going to be on the court or not though, we still think that this is going to be a game that goes to the hosts. The Nuggets are obviously a tremendously worse road team (12-19 SU, 16-15 ATS) than a home team (24-3 SU, 18-9 ATS), and they have gone just 1-4 SU and 2-3 ATS over the course of their last five road games. On top of that, the Blazers are still a tremendous home team (18-9 SU, 13-12-2 ATS) in spite of their overall record. They topped the Boston Celtics and have played two very strong games in a row against some of the top teams in the league. We think that G Damian Lillard is one of the best budding point guards in the league, and the top five scorers on this team are all superstars in their own right. It’s going to be tough to run with the Nuggets, but the truth of the matters is that the home team has always dominated in this series. Denver is just 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings here at the Rose Garden, and the home team is now 14-3 ATS in the last 17 meetings (not to mention 16-1 SU in those 17 games). Roll with Portland on Wednesday night.
