NBA VIP BETTING TIP: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Brooklyn Nets
- Title : NBA VIP BETTING TIP: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets are still way below 50% for the year and have lost all the games in their current West Coast road trip. Can they bounce back tonight in Portland?
The Portland Trail Blazers are on top of the Western Conference with a 10-4 record. They have won 4 of the last 5 games and are coming off a 117-110 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Jerami Grant was the best player in that game with 29 points.
Damian Lillard is the best player on the Blazers team with 27.9 points and 6.6 assists per game. Anfernee Simmons is one of the candidates for the most improved player as he is at 22.3 points per game.
The Brooklyn Nets are still struggling even after the coaching change. Jacquet Vaughn has not brought anything new in BKY and they are 12th in the Eastern Conference with a 6-9 record.
The Nets have lost to the Los Angeles Lakers and the Sacramento Kings hoping to put an end to that streak in Portland.
Kevin Durant is the only top-level player on that team with 30.3 points per game. Kyrie Irving has served the five-game suspension but is still unclear when he will return to the court.
- Jusuf Nurkic, Justice Windslow and Gary Payton II will not play for Portland
- Kyrie Irving will not play for Brooklyn
- Portland has won 3 of the last 5 against Brooklyn
There is a huge gap between the team record of Portland and Brooklyn even though they have an almost similar record in the last 10 games. Anyway, what makes the difference between these two teams is the chemistry within the organization. It seems like all the pieces are well set in Portland while it is chaos in Brooklyn. Kyrie Irving is still away from the team and the Nets' GM Sean Marks has given him a list of things he needs to do in order to return. The team and the front office are also disappointed with Ben Simmons and there is no way the Nets will be able to win in Portland, which is one of the toughest places to play for the opposite teams. Damian Lillard is back at his level and Jerami Grant is often the best player on the team. The Blazers are the team to back up in this game and just in case, I am adding a +1.5 point for them for good odds of 1.62.
Portland to win and total over 218.5 points
|Prediction||Portland Trail Blazers +1.5|
