This Christmas will see a number of fascinating basketball betting games. The sports odds will feature a premier matchup between the LA Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers, or as many people will call it, Kobe vs. LeBron. It will be a match to behold. The last game on Friday night will feature the Denver Nuggets as they visit Portland, Oregon to blaze the Oregon Trail.
The Trail Blazers host the Denver Nuggets on an ESPN televised game at 10:30 EST. The first time these two teams met in Oregon, the score was quite close. The Nuggets won that match, 97-94. However, the first time the two teams met Portland won 98-96 in Denver. It’s a tough game to call, and it will definitely be an exciting matchup. The Trail Blazers are favored in the sports odds for this match.
Portland’s defense is second in the league, but their offense tends to go up and down from time to time. But as you’ll hear many a coach say, defense wins the game. Portland’s injuries take a little away from their depth, so if Brandon Roy isn’t quite in his groove, the Trail Blazers could have a tough Christmas night.
