NBA Picks have been winning at a 77.3% rate and will continue through the 2016 NBA Finals in 2016. The (4-8) Portland Trailblazers of the NBA Western Conference Northwest Division will be in the “LONE STAR STATE” for a Conference matchup. Portland play’s the (4-7) Houston Rockets of the Western Conference Southwest in 2015 NBA action. The teams will play at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Tip-Off time is at 8:00 PM EST. The game is on Wednesday, November, 18th 2015. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Portland Trailblazers let three core players go in the offseason. LaMarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews, and Nicholas Batum are no longer with Portland, and it is showing with their less than impressive record. The Houston Rockets are playing less than spectacular basketball the first three weeks of the season. Houston will get better as the season progresses. The Opening betting line has Houston as seven-point Home Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds total is 209′-points for Wednesday’s game.
The 2015-16 Portland Trailblazers lost 93-80 at San Antonio on Monday, November 17th for their sixth loss in a row. Portland has been held under 100-points the past two games including a 106-94 loss at Charlotte. The team broke the century mark in seven games before the loss in the “TAR HEEL STATE”. Point Guard Damian Lillard is the team leader in scoring and assists early in the season. Shooting Guard C.J. McCollum is second with 17.0 ppg. Center Mason Plumlee is the leader in rebounds, blocked shots and steals. The coaching staff is looking for growth from both Plumlee and McCollum this season. Shooting Guard Gerald Henderson has been a disappointment since coming to Portland from Charlotte in the offseason, but it’s still early. Head Coach Terry Stotts is in his third season on the bench in “RIP CITY” and a playoff spot could be in jeopardy this season. It is going to take time for the team to gel; the talent is in place.
The Houston Rockets made it to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals last season before losing to eventual Champions Golden State Warriors. After starting out, the season winless the Rockets went on a three-game win streak but has lost their last four. The Rockets have dropped their last two at home by double digits. The latest an 111-95 defeat at the hands of the Boston Celtics. Fans in “SPACE CITY” are disillusioned with the teams performance this season. The Rockets held players only meeting recently to turn the tables. Newly acquired point guard Ty Lawson was supposed to be the missing part but things are slow in the making. James Harden is the team leader in scoring and assists. Dwight Howard controls the paint, and Trevor Ariza is the leader in steals. Head Coach Kevin McHale knows his big three will come to play; it’s the role players he’s worried about.
The Betting Odds over The Total are 7-1 the last eight between the teams in Houston.
The Rockets 5-2 Against The Point Spread the last seven between the teams.
