NBA Odds: Trail Blazers get tough stretch on floor
The Portland Trail Blazers will be looking to enter the All-Star Break on a high note as they take on a pair of tough Western Conference rivals in NBA betting action at the sportsbooks early this week - the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers.
Portland enters the week at 36-15 SU and 28-23 ATS on the NBA betting lines on the season, and they'll return to action on Tuesday night at home against the Thunder. The Trail Blazers are just 2-8 SU and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games against the Thunder, falling 105-97 in Oklahoma City as a 6-point road underdog in their last meeting on January 21.
The UNDER is 6-1 in the last seven games between the Trail Blazers and the Thunder for totals bettors on the NBA odds.
The Trail Blazers then head out on the road to face the Clippers at the Staples Center on Wednesday night, with Portland 4-6 SU and 4-5-1 ATS in its last 10 games against Los Angeles. Portland last faced the Clippers on December 26, winning 116-112 at home but not covering the 4.5-point spread on the NBA betting lines.
The UNDER is 3-2 in the last five games between Portland and Los Angeles for totals bettors.
Monday's NBA betting schedule consists of six games this week, with Denver at Indiana, New Orleans at Toronto, San Antonio at Detroit, Boston at Milwaukee, Philadelphia at Golden State, and Houston at Minnesota. The UNDER has paid off in each of the last four games between the Rockets and the Timberwolves.
Along with Oklahoma City at Portland on Tuesday it'll also be Dallas at Charlotte, Sacramento at Cleveland, Atlanta at Chicago, Washington at Memphis, Miami at Phoenix, and Utah at the Lakers. The Jazz are 0-3 ATS in their last three games against the Lakers on the NBA betting lines at the sportsbooks.
Wednesday's busy slate then also includes Dallas at Indiana, Memphis at Orlando, Atlanta at Toronto, Charlotte at Brooklyn, Cleveland at Detroit, Sacramento at New York, Washington at Houston, New Orleans at Milwaukee, Denver at Minnesota, Philadelphia at Utah, Miami at Golden State, and San Antonio at Boston.
The Spurs topped the Celtics 104-93 at home in their last meeting on November 20, but didn't manage to cover the big 14.5-point spread on the NBA odds in that OVER result.
Finally, the NBA has just two games on tap for Thursday night before it shuts down for the All-Star Break, with Brooklyn at Chicago and Oklahoma City at the Lakers. The Thunder have dominated the Lakers at 8-2 SU and 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 matchups, with seven of those games turning into OVER results.
