The (26-18) SU, (23-21) ATS Portland Trailblazers lost to Denver as 116-113 as 4′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS which broke their four-game win streak. All-Star point guard Damian Lillard scored 26 points in defeat, but they had no answer for Denver Center Nikola Jokic who poured in 40 points.

Portland is one of three Northwest Division teams in the top four spots of the Western Conference, Denver along with Oklahoma City are the others.

  • UNDER bettors have made a profit in 6 of Portland last seven on the road.
  • The UNDER is 4-1-1 Portland last six overall.
  • The Trail Blazers are 3-0-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD the last four meetings between the teams.
  • Portland is 4-0 ATS their last four vs. Teams with an SU winning record at home.

The (22-21) SU, (25-18) ATS Sacramento Kings are on a two-game winning streak after a 104-97 defeat of Charlotte on Saturday Night as 5′ point home FAVORITES ATS.

Both teams got off to a fast start in the games combining for sixty-four first-quarter points, but it was all defense in the second half as UNDER bettors made profits. Sacramento begins a six-game road trip starting in Charlotte on Thursday, January 17th.

  • Sacramento is 4-0 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last four at home.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 the Kings last four at home against a team with a losing SU road record.
  • The Kings are 2-5 ATS their last seven between the teams in Sacramento.
  • UNDER bettors have made profits the Kings last three at home.

Monday’s game is 10:00 PM EST at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. The Local Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Portland as 2′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 227′ points for Monday’s contest.

 

Head Coach Terry Stotts gets to see how his team performs in a back to back scenario after Damian Lillard missed a game-tying three-point shot at the Buzzer in Denver.

Tonight’s game is the third of four meetings between the teams this season with Portland looking to make it three in a row after a 113-106 road victory as 1 point road FAVORITES ATS on New Year’s Day.

The Trail Blazers will be without small forward Moe Harkless who missed the last three with a knee injury. Despite the loss last night in Denver, Stotts is pleased with his performance at both ends of the floor.

Portland scores (108.5) points per game on the road this season but they’ve put up (113.0) their last two in wins over Golden State and tonight’s opponent. The Trailblazers allow opponents (113.8) ppg on the road this season on (47.4%) shooting from the field which is 20th in the Association. With Lillard and shooting guard CJ McCollum in the backcourt it seems as Portland would shot a higher percentage from beyond the three-point line, it hasn’t been the case this season with the (35.6%) ranking 11th league-wide.

However, the Trail Blazers (81.4%) from the free throw line is third in the NBA.

The Best Basketball Handicappers believes the key to a Portland win tonight is to play tight defense in a back to back games. Stotts understand the Kings will try to attack what could be an exhausted Trailblazer team.

Bovada.Lv list the Portland Trailblazers win total at 42 games for 2018-19.

 

Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox leads the team in steals, assists and his (17.9) points per contest is second to backcourt mate Buddy Hield,  (20.1.) ppg.

Both sides played Charlotte in the past 3 days with Sacramento scoring 104 points while Portland put up 127 on the Hornets. All seems quite in Sacramento with the trade deadline coming to an end, but General manager Vlade Divac has options.

Head Coach Dave Joerger is doing a masterful job with a roster that has plenty of youthful talent. Joerger earned a reputation of playing hard-nosed defense when he was in Memphis, and he’s instilling the same principle with the Kings which shows as they’ve given up an average of (107.0) ppg the last four.

The Kings score (116.5) points per games which is 5th league-wide while (38.9%) they shoot from beyond the three-point line is second in the league. However they need help rebounding, and Stotts knows they’ll have their work cut out tonight against a Portland team that ranks third in the NBA.

It was refreshing to hear rookie Power Forward Marvin Bagley III embrace being drafted by the organization in an era where most players will do anything to get out of Sacramento.

This Sports Handicapper understands Stotts defensive, but Sacramento should force the pace tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the Sacramento Kings win total at 26 games for 2018-19.

The (10-29) SU, (17-21-1) ATS New York Knicks took down the LeBron James less Los Angeles Lakers on January 4th as 5′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

It was the first time the Knicks won in their last eight overall. Tonight they’ll be playing their fifth road game which concludes in Oakland on the 8th of this month against Golden State.

  • New York is 1-5 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last six in Portland.
  • The UNDER is 5-1 the Knicks last six vs. Team with an SU winning record.
  • The Knicks are 4-1 ATS their last five after an SU victory.
  • OVER bettors have made profits in 12 of, the Knicks last fourteen on two day’s rest.

The (23-17) SU, (20-10) ATS Portland Trailblazers took down Houston on January 5th as 2 point home FAVORITES ATS as Center Jusuf Nurkic led them with 25 points.

Portland is third in the Northwest division, 4′ games behind first-place Denver. If the season ended today, the Trailblazers would have the seventh playoff seed in the Western Conference.

  • UNDER bettors have cashed in four of the last five between the teams in Portland.
  • The Trailblazers are 3-4 ATS their last seven at home.
  • The favorite is 5-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD the last six between the teams.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in Portland last five after an ATS cover.

Monday’s game is 10:05 PM EST at Moda Center in Portland, Oregon. The Local Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has New York as 12 point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 221′ points for Monday’s contest.

New York Knicks head coach David Fizdale knew what to expect when he took the job in the largest city in America. The entire coaching staff was pleased with their performance in a 115-108 loss against Western Conference front-runners Denver which carried over in the win over the Lakers.

The Knicks have momentum going for them but did two day’s off hurt them? Fizdale replaced starting Center Enes Kanter lineup with Luke Kornet which doesn’t still well with the former Thunder standout. However, he responded with a sixteen point performance against in Los Angeles. New York averages (107.8) points per contest which ranks 22nd in the NBA while allowing (115.8) to the opposition, 27th.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (20.6) ppg leads the Knicks in scoring while point guard Emmanuel Mudiay dishes out (4.0) assists per game on an offense that ranks 29th overall. Fizdale is comfortable with Mudiay running the show and believes once he improves his jump shot he’ll be an All-Star.

Rookies Kevin Knox (12.2) ppg and Allonzo Trier (10.3) have been a welcomed addition to the team. Noah Vonleh (8.7) rebounds per contest should be fired up against the team he played on from 2015-18.

The NBA Handicappers at Charliessports have an unreal ATS record when going on or against the New York Knicks and were treating this one as a free play tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the New York Knicks win total at 29′ games for 2018-19.

 

The backcourt of Damian Lillard (26.4) points per game along with CJ McCollum (20.9) could be the most electric backcourts in the Western Conference. The duo combined for sixty points when the teams met back in November at Madison Square Garden, a 118-114 Portland victory.

Head coach Terry Stotts will put both in position to duplicate the feat tonight against suspect Knicks defenders. Portland has won eight of the previous ten SU between the teams, and in the competitive West, they can’t afford to lose at home against a subpar team.

Center Jusuf Nurkic (10.5) rebound per game also leads Portland in steals and shot blocks; he knows the Knicks Vonleh will go at him with everything he’s got tonight. Portland is the third-ranked rebounding team in the league grabbing (48.5), Power Forward Al-Farouq Aminu is just as active on the glass.

The Trailblazer want to make it four of five wins tonight and to do that they can’t take New York lightly. Lillard and McCollum sometimes ask to do too much which Stotts understands which is why Nurkic is such a valuable asset in the post. Second-year Center/Power Forward Zack Collins is getting more minutes after showing he’s capable of making open shots and doesn’t mind getting physical down low.

This Sports Handicapper believes Portland has too much at stake to lose at home to a far less talented team and they’ll expose New York on the perimeter.

The (4-20) SU, (8-16) Phoenix Suns will try to break a six-game losing streak both SU/ATS. Phoenix has been as bad as expected through the first quarter of the 2018-19 season. The latest a December 4th, a 122-105 defeat to Sacramento as 5′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS.

Sacramento got off to a 36-9 first-quarter lead, never looking back in victory.

  • The Suns are 4-1 ATS their last five in Portland.
  • Phoenix is 0-5 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five after an ATS loss.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 4 of Phoenix last five overall.
  • Phoenix is 2-4 ATS their last six on the road.

The (13-11) SU, (11-13) ATS Portland Trailblazers have dropped six of seven and have not had a POINT SPREAD cover since November 18th. Portland is 8-4 SU playing in front of the home crowd this season. They’re four games behind first-place Denver in the Northwest division.

The Trailblazers got outscored 34-20 in the opening quarter in their latest loss to Dallas as 2 point road FAVORITES ATS.

  • The Trailblazers are 0-6 ATS their last six on one day of rest.
  • Over bettors have made profits the last four meetings between the teams in Portland.
  • Portland is 0-3 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their previous three at home.
  • The OVER is 7-3 Portland last ten overall.

Thursday’s game is at 10:05 PM EST at Moda Center in Portland, Oregon. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has Phoenix as 13 point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 214′ points for Thursday’s contest.

Trade rumors surrounding 33-year-old forward Trevor Ariza are swirling around the Phoenix Suns organization. The former Rockets star has plenty of value with an ability to clamp down on defense and shoot from the perimeter.

Phoenix wants a quality point guard to distribute, freeing up Devin Booker (out tonight) to freelance on the wing.

The Suns (103.0) points per game are 28th in the league while the (45.6%) shooting from the field ranks 17th in basketball. Booker (23.5) ppg along with TJ Warren whos out with a hamstring injury, (17.7) are the primary offensive weapon. The organization wants 2017 number-four overall draft pick, Josh Jackson, to play a more prominent role, and he’ll get his chance tonight with the two top scorers out.

Rookie Deandre Ayton is the real deal and is showing why he was the top overall pick this season grabbing a team-best (10.2) rebounds per game. The Suns 25th ranked defense allows opponents (114.0) points per game; the last two opponents have scored at least 120 points. Phoenix allows the opposition a high shooting percentage which must be corrected.

Forward Ryan Anderson has been a disappointment since coming over from New Orleans but provides leadership to the youthful roster. Phoenix knows that Portland is desperate for a victory.

However, it’s going to be tight with Booker and Warren out tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the Phoenix Suns win total at 29′ games for 2018-19.

The Portland Trailblazers front office didn’t make any drastic moves after they got swept in the opening round of last season’s playoffs. Portland began the season playing efficiently at both ends of the court, but now fans around the city are questioning head coach Terry Stotts.

As expected All-Star point guard Damian Lillard is playing at an elite level. However, role players such as Zach Collins, Moe Harkless, and Al-Farouq Aminu are struggling which reminds the faithful of the Pelicans playoff series.

Lillard average a team-high (27.3) ppg on a unit that produces (112.5) points per contest. If the season ended today, Portland would be the number-seven seed in the Western Conference. Portland allows the opposition (111.7) points per game, 20th in the NBA on a dismal (46.0%) shooting from the field which is too high.

Portland excels at forcing turnover; the (12.2) is the 2nd league-wide. CJ McCollum is questionable for tonight’s game after suffering an ankle injury.

A key to a Portland win tonight to come out and play with enthusiasm; someone other than Lillard has to produce on offense.

Los Angeles Clippers @ Portland Trailblazers NBA Betting preview for Thursday, November 8, 2018.

The (6-4) SU/ATS Los Angeles Clippers are on a two-game winning streak both SU/ATS after their 120-109 home victory over Minnesota as a five and a half point home FAVORITE ATS.

Los Angeles is tied with Sacramento for second place in the Pacific division both teams trail Golden State by three and a half games. Forwards Tobias Harris and Danilo Gallinari scored twenty-two points apiece in the win over the Timberwolves as the Clippers outscored the T-Wolves in each quarter.

  • The Clippers are 1-4 ATS the last five meetings between the teams.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 6 of the Clippers last seven on Thursday’s.
  • The Clippers are 0-4 ATS their last four on the road vs. Teams with a winning home record.
  • The OVER has been profitable three of the Clippers last five on the road.

The (8-3) SU/ATS Portland Trailblazers have the third best record in the Western Conference behind Golden State and Denver. Portland beat an excellent Milwaukee team 118-103 SU as a two-point home UNDERDOG ATS.

They’ve won 5 of six SU, and from the looks of things, the Northwest could be the most competitive in Basketball. Denver, Minnesota, Utah, and Oklahoma City could all qualify for postseason play.

  • The OVER is 4-0 Portland last four on Thursday’s.
  • Portland is 9-1 ATS their last ten on Thursday’s.
  • Portland has stayed UNDER the total their last 3 of their last four at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 5 of Portland last six after they scored 100 or more points the previous game.

Thursday’s game is at 10:00 PM EST at the Moda Center in beautiful Portland, Oregon. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has the Clippers as five-point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 225 points for Thursday’s contest.

Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers seems to always have the team in the thick of the playoff hunt only to fall short when it counts the most.

Management decided to part way’s with Blake Griffin along with Chris Paul last season and DeAndre Jordan signed with Dallas in July of 2018. Rivers seems to have the new cast of characters playing with a sense of purpose. Small

Forward Tobias Harris tops the team with a (21.3) ppg scoring average on an offense that averages (116.2) ppg which ranks eighth in the league. The Clipper is especially good shooting from beyond the three-point line as Harris, Gallinari and Lou Williams averaging over 40.0% good enough to be ranked third league-wide as a unit. Even without Griffin and Jordan who were known to be terrific in the post, the Clippers are still among the top ten leading rebounding teams.

In Doc Rivers fashion his team is efficient on defense as opponents are shooting just (43.2%) good enough for fifth in the league.

The Clippers can run with any team in the league except for Golden State; the Clippers play a similar style as Portland with the only thing separating them, and that’s the star power of Portland All-Star guard Damian Lillard.

Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Clippers at +3,000 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Pacific.

All seems well in the Rose City even after last season’s debacle in the first round of the playoffs. Head Coach Terry Stotts welcomes the challenges of the 2018-19 season with a competitive attitude. He’ll have too as every team in their division is capable of making the 2018 NBA Western Conference finals.

Before the season began, all of the talk surrounding the Northwest division was about the Utah Jazz, but Denver is performing at an elite level so far.

Portland averages (117.3) ppg, seventh in the NBA with Lillard leading the way with (26.7) ppg along with (5.5) assists per contest.

The first round exit against New Orleans the Blazers lost game-one by two points 97-95 but the final three the Pelicans increased their scoring. In game four Portland allowed 131-point which sent them packing for the summer; it also could have been fools gold for New Orleans who’s scoring but are challenged on defense this year.

Stotts has put a premium on defense this season, and it’s paying dividends as the Trailblazers are allowing opponents (107.4) ppg which is sixth league-wide. Portland must continue to play tight defense the way the rest of the division is trending, Denver in particular.

Bovada.Lv, list the Portland Trailblazers at +450 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Northwest Title.
