  • Damian Lillard’s point total is set at 34.5 with the over being the betting underdog.
  • Nikola Jokic has odds of -120 to have Under 6.5 assists, a mark he’s only hit once this series.

PORTLAND – The Portland Trailblazers will host the Denver Nuggets in Game 6 of the series as the home team looks to avoid elimination. Game 5 went to double-overtime which led to some monster stat lines. We’ll break down some player props heading into Thursday’s game.

Damian Lillard O/U 34.5 Points

Damian Lillard is coming off of a monster 55-point outing in Game 5 and is now averaging nearly 35.6 points per game in the series. His point total is set at 34.5 points with the over being the slight underdog.

Damian Lillard Point Total Odds

  • Over 34.5 -105
  • Under 34.5 -125

Lillard’s point totals in this series are 34, 42, 37, 10 and 55. He’s also taking an average on 22. 8 shots per game and hitting at a 43% clip. Online sportsbooks may be undervaluing Lillard’s ability to replicate his recent performances due to his volume and efficiency.

He’s unlikely to match his record-setting performance from Tuesday, but he can comfortably reach 35 or more points in a variety of ways.

Nikola Jokic O/U 6.5 Assists

Arguably what makes Nikola Jokic so special is his passing ability as a big man. However, he is only averaging 4.2 assists this series and has multiple games with just one assist in the box score. The Under has shorter odds for this prop, and rightfully so.

Nikola Jokic Assist Total Odds

  • Over 6.5 -105
  • Under 6.5 -125

Jokic has hit this mark just once this series, in the double-overtime game. It’s possible Jokic is tired from playing 46 minutes a couple of days ago and decides to look for teammates more often, but that simply isn’t reason enough to go against what we’ve seen from him throughout this series.

Monte Morris O/U 1.5 Three-Pointers Made

Monte Morris has hit at least two three-pointers in back-to-back games which may leave bettors questioning why NBA betting giving such generous odds on the Over 1.5 three-pointers made.

Monte Morris 3PM Total Odds

  • Over 1.5 +180
  • Under 1.5 -245

Morris has been taking more attempts from behind the arc as the series has gone on, having taken just one in Game 1, two in Games 2 and 3, four in Game 4 and nine in Game 5. If he puts up the volume, he should be able to see a couple fall. Regardless, +180 betting odds are too good to pass up in this spot.

Robert Covington O/U 7.5 Rebounds

Robert Covington is thought to be a three-and-D type player, but has been hitting the glass in this series as he’s averaging 7.4 boards per game and has grabbed at least nine in each of the last three games. The betting odds suggest he won’t be able to hit this mark again, but it may be more likely than they suggest.

Robert Covington Rebound Total Odds

  • Over 7.5 +100
  • Under 7.5 -130

Something doesn’t happen three times in a row out of coincidence, Covington has been in a position to get rebounds and it’s paying off. It’s more than possible he grabs eight or more boards for the fourth straight game on Thursday night.
