No.5 seed Devin Booker squares off against the Denver Nuggets No.12 seed Michael Porter Jr. in the first round of the tournament. They certainly seem pretty evenly matched when it comes to NBA 2K20 Ratings, so why does Booker have such a solid edge in Vegas sportsbooks? Classified as an absolute Scoring Machine by the game, Booker has maintained a steady rating all season long, never veering by more than one-point. He had a stronger mid-season, rated at 87 between Week 3 and Week 19, but even though he dropped by just one point he is one of the most consistent offensive threats in both the virtual and real game. That said, his opponent has been on steady climb, increasing his rating from 76 to 81 through the season. Some may choose to back Porter Jr for this reason, but Booker is just too damn dependable to ignore. Plus, he’s a big gamer, playing Call of Duty on the regular in addition to NBA 2K20.
Devin Booker wins the first round game against Michael Porter Jr, 88-81.
