Additionally, the over/under point total against Denver is 232.5. Portland has averaged 124.6 points per game during the restart and Denver has averaged 119.3 points per game.
It marks the second time that the Blazers are favored in the seeding games and the first time since the opener of the restart against Memphis. Portland has covered in two of their games (Memphis and Houston) and pushed the four-point spread in its loss against Boston.
Damian Lillard's over/under for points scored is 26.5. He has averaged 22.0 points against Denver this season. Meanwhile, CJ McCollum, who has averaged 15.7 points against the Nuggets this season, has an over/under of 22.5.
The Nuggets, who are playing on the second of a back-to-back, will likely be without Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, and Will Barton. All three players did not play the day prior against San Antonio.
ESPN's BPI index has raised its odds of Portland making the postseason from 9% to 25% after the first week of the restart.
Meanwhile, Portland continues to be +400 in Westgate to be the eighth seed in the Western Conference.
