DENVER – The Denver Nuggets will host the Portland Trailblazers in Game 5 of their first-round series on Tuesday night.

Denver is a minor favorite to win and take a 3-2 series lead, but there are some enticing alternate lines that carry some value.

Portland Trailblazers -6 (+230)

The Trailblazers’ wins in this series have come by 14 and 20 points. Any NBA bettors who believe Portland can win this game may be able to find more value in this alternate line.

Only one game in this series has been decided by single-digit points, further reinforcing the possibility for Portland to cover this spread despite being underdogs.

Over 230 Points (+125)

Throughout four games in this series, three games have had more than 230 points. Both teams rank in the top seven in points per game in the playoffs as well as in the bottom eight in points allowed per game.

The normal over/under is set at 226, so all this alternate line adds is an extra bucket and a free throw. Given this mark has been hit 75% of the time this series, getting plus money odds seems to have enough value to be worthy of a bet.
