Denver Nuggets (1-1) are in Moda Center at the Rose Quarter to ball against a hungry Portland Trail Blazers (1-1) team for Game 3 of this Western Conference Playoff series.
In the first two games of this playoff series Denver Nuggets offense is being led by Nikola Jokic and Michael Porter Jr. Michael Porter Jr. scored 18 in his last outing against the Trail Blazers. However, he scored 25 in the game before that. Nuggets need a big offensive performance from Porter Jr. to keep up with Portland’s scoring and he is not afraid to shoot the ball a ton. Trail Blazers defense ranks 23rd in points allowed per game.
Preston’s Player Prop Bet: Michael Porter Jr. OVER 23.5 Points (-110)
Denver Nuggets let the last game get away from them at the end. Tonight I anticipate a fast start as the Nuggets have played a stronger first half in both of the previous games.
Preston’s Dart Throw: Denver Nuggets +1 First Quarter Spread (-115)
Giving credit where credit is due Nuggets rank 5th in assists per game. Nuggets also rank 4th in Field Goal % per game. Over is 4-0 while Nuggets played on 2 days of rest.
Preston’s Best Bet: Denver Nuggets TT OVER 111.5 Points (-120)
