The Nuggets have a chance to take a commanding 3-1 series lead with a win in Portland on Saturday, but Damian Lillard and the Trail Blazers won’t be an easy out.
Let’s take a deep dive into the different wagering markets with our Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers Game 4 betting pick, complete with the best odds, prop predictions, and analysis.
Nikola Jokic is the clear-cut MVP of the regular season, but Damian Lillard was in the conversation for a while. Jokic and Lillard are the two best players on the floor in this series and they are showing it. Both guys are averaging at least 36 points per game through three games.
However, it might come down to the other guys on each team in this game. We know Jokic and Lillard are going to put up 30+ points, but it’s the second, third, and fourth stars on each team that could make the difference here.

Bets We Like With A Nuggets Win
Michael Porter Jr. Over 21.5 Points (-110)
Michael Porter Jr. is the second option offensively for the Nuggets right now. Since Jamal Murray went down with a torn ACL, Porter has been magnificent for the Nuggets. So far in the playoffs, Porter is averaging just over 19 points per game, but he’s not shooting it as well as we expect him to.
The 22-year-old dropped 25 points in Game 1 despite shooting 1-for-10 from deep. Jokic has been carrying the scoring load for Denver, but they need Porter to have a big night on Saturday.

Bets We Like With A Trail Blazers Win
Damian Lillard Over 4.5 Threes (-125)
Damian Lillard isn’t shy when it comes to launching it from deep. They call him “Logo Lillard” for a reason and he has been chucking it this series. He has attempted 44 threes in three games and hit at least five in all three games. We expect that trend to continue as Lillard and the Blazers try to even this series at two games apiece. Lillard has had no problem shooting over Facundo Campazzo.

Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers Game 4 Prediction
Let’s roll with the Nuggets in Game 4. Although they struggled to stop the Blazers in Game 1, it looks like they have finally figured them out. Despite the fact that Lillard is going off with 35+ point games every night, Denver is good enough to outscore Portland anyway. Take the Nuggets getting the points here and go big on any Michael Porter Jr. points props.
Betting Pick: Nuggets +4.5
