TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, JUNE 1ST
#524 DENVER (-2) over Portland at 9 PM EST
Off that ugly 115-95 blowout loss at Portland in Game 4, Denver will return home with plenty of energy and grit and pound the visiting Trailblazers on Monday night. Let’s take a quick peek at the numbers.
As a host in this series, the Nuggets have played well inking a reliable 43-22 SU and 38-25-2 ATS record. In this run battling a Blazers bunch that carries a team won/loss percentage of .515 or better, Denver jumps to a magnificent 32-16 SU and 31-15-2 ATS including an elite 29-13 SU and 29-11-1 ATS provided head coach Michael Malone’s boys are rested. Also, NBA Playoff favorites that sport a team won/loss percentage of .605 or better own a lucrative 44-15 SU and 39-20 ATS mark provided they enter off a postseason straight up loss of 20 points or more. That bodes well for the Nuggets.
This is the perfect spot to fade Portland too. When hitting the hardwood with confidence off a straight up postseason win, the Trailblazers have really struggled inking a feeble 32-43 SU and 25-47-3 ATS mark in their next game. As a guest in this negative situation, the Blazers fall to a stiff 7-32 SU and 10-27-2 ATS. Additionally, on the road arriving off a blowout win of 20 points or more, the Trailblazers hold a pitiful 18-37 SU and 18-34 ATS tally provided their opponent scoots in off a straight up loss. In this setting fighting a division foe, head coach Terry Stotts and his troops fall to a woeful 5-17 SU and 4-17 ATS.
After coming out flat in Game 4, the Nuggets will use the energy of their homecourt to help them pick up this huge win. Take Denver. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
