Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Blazers know that winning as much games as possible is necessary to fulfil their NBA playoff aspirations. But with Damian Lillard out of action, Portland may need extra effort from players like CJ McCollum and Carmelo Anthony. Their offense has been falling short, averaging only 109.3 points in their last three games. The Blazers are not exactly that good in defense, meaning it will be a rough match against Indiana this Thursday.

Players to watch: C. McCollum SG 55 GP 55 GS 35.9 MIN 21.9 PTS 0.6 OR 3.4 DR 4 REB 4.1 AST 0.7 STL 0.7 BLK 1.9 TO 2.5 PF 2.2 AST/TO 16.69 PER

H. Whiteside C 54 GP 54 GS 31.1 MIN 15.9 PTS 4 OR 10.2 DR 14.2 REB 1.3 AST 0.4 STL 3.1 BLK 1.9 TO 3 PF 0.6 AST/TO 24.75 PER

C. Anthony PF 43 GP 43 GS 32.6 MIN 15.5 PTS 1.3 OR 5.2 DR 6.4 REB 1.5 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 1.7 TO 2.9 PF 0.9 AST/TO 12.17 PER

Indiana Pacers Betting

The Indiana Pacers are looking good, winning three of their last four assignments. They will go for their second consecutive win against the Blazers with odds definitely in their favor. Domantas Sabonis is expected to have another fine outing after producing 21 points and 15 rebounds last time out. T.J. Warren and Malcolm Brogdon will do their share as well as they face an undermanned Portland team. Their defense should hold up as well, limiting opponents to just 107.3 points per game.

Players to Watch: T.J. Warren SF 55 GP 55 GS 32.2 MIN 18.5 PTS 1 OR 2.9 DR 3.8 REB 1.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 1.2 TO 2.7 PF 1.2 AST/TO 17.46 PER
