The Denver Nuggets are looking to extend their winning streak to seven games on Tuesday when they host the Portland Trail Blazers.
Denver is the best home team in the NBA this season, which gives us some value betting on the game, and in the prop market as well!
If you’re looking to get in the action for some props on both sides, I have three plays that you should target tonight:
Blazers vs. Nuggets best NBA prop bets today
- Aaron Gordon OVER 9.5 Rebounds and Assists
- Denver Nuggets 1Q Spread -2 vs. Portland Trail Blazers
- Anfernee Simons OVER 3.5 Assists
Aaron Gordon OVER 9.5 Rebounds and Assists
Aaron Gordon is on a tear on the glass, averaging 8.0 rebounds per game over his last 10 contests.
Over that stretch, the Nuggets forward has cleared 9.5 rebounds and assists in eight of those 10 games. He did have a zero rebound game mixed in there, but Gordon has been fairly consistent on the glass overall, averaging 6.8 boards per game on the season.
Any time we can get this Gordon prop at 9.5, I think it is worth a shot, especially with Jeff Green still sidelined.
Denver Nuggets 1Q Spread -2 vs. Portland Trail Blazers
The Nuggets are the best team in the NBA in the first quarter, posting a net rating of 16.3 in the opening frame this season.
Portland, on the other hand, comes in at 19th in the league with a net rating of -2.1 in the first quarter.
The Nuggets have been extremely profitable in this prop, especially at home where they are arguably the best team in the NBA. Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets should get off to a hot start at Ball Arena.
Anfernee Simons OVER 3.5 Assists
Anfernee Simons has posted four or more assists in five of his last six games, including four straight matchups.
The Blazers guard is struggling with his shot as of late, but there is a way for Nuggets fans to even bet on him, because Denver’s defense is very susceptible to allowing assists this season.
The Nuggets rank 26th in the NBA in opponent assists per game (26.2), so Simons should be able to create for his teammates with ease, especially if his shot continues to struggle.
