Denver Nuggets at L.A. Lakers -8 (230 total)

Denver will try to make it tougher on the Lakers tonight. It was too easy in game one, when L.A. scored virtually at will. To its credit, when the Nuggets hold opponents to under 100 points, they are 18-6 straight up and 17-7 ATS. For any chance to even the series, Denver will have to play defense. That may not be enough to win, but it should be enough to keep the scoring down. NUGGETS/LAKERS UNDER 230
