Let's get stuck into the action tonight.
POR Trailblazers @ DEN Nuggets
There’s no escaping how good the Nuggets have been on home court this year, and I expect their performance today to be equally impressive. So far in the playoffs they’ve gone 5-2 at the Pepsi Center, with 4 of their 5 wins coming by 9 points or more. The Trailblazers on the other hand have been patchy moving from the back end of the regular season and into the playoffs. So far they’ve gone 2-3 on the road in the post season, and when losing on the road, they’ve lost 6 of 7 by greater margins than today’s spread.

PHI 76ers @ TOR Raptors
Yet again we’re taking the home team to cover in the later game this evening. Philly have played well on the road in the playoffs, but we can’t hold too much stock in their road wins to the Nets. In their 3 road games to the Raptors, they lost 2 in one sided beatings with losing margins of 13 and 32 pts. It’s more than likely that Toronto will be the publically backed side of the line, but even still, I expect them to bounce back from their G6 performance and see off the 76ers here.
