Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Blazers pulled a victory over the Washington Wizards but this was an injury-depleted team that they defeated. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum were too much to handle for the Wizards as they scored a combined 59 points. It was Hassan Whiteside that controlled the interior with 23 points and 21 rebounds and it will be interesting to see him return to his former team and what numbers he can produce. Carmelo Anthony was on the dot with 7-of-9 from the field to finish with 16 points. They won but this is the Miami Heat they are battling and they are tough to beat at home.

Miami Heat Betting

The Miami Heat are two different teams so far this year. When they are on the road, they are 50/50 on their win-loss card. But when they are at home, they are almost undefeated and boasts a 16-1 record. The Blazers are going to face the Heat at home and Miami just transforms into this beast. But still, they are coming off a 20-point blowout loss against the Orlando Magic. It was only Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo that reached double-digit scoring while other players struggled. They only shot 38% from the field as a team and committed 18 turnovers. Against the Blazers, they look at this as a chance to get back on Hassan Whiteside and it is going to be a watch for basketball fans.

Players to Watch: J. Butler SF 31 GP 31 GS 35.4 MIN 20.4 PTS 2.1 OR 4.8 DR 6.9 REB 6.6 AST 2 STL 0.5 BLK 2.6 TO 1.3 PF 2.5 AST/TO 23.53 PER
