Portland Trail Blazers vs New Orleans Pelicans Betting Picks

The opening NBA odds augured well for the Blazers, who have underachieved so far. Also, the Pelicans would have been more competitive this season had not the injury bug hit the team hard.

Moneyline: The Blazers scored a 3-0 sweep in their last three games with the Pelicans, including a 122-110 beatdown in the same arena last March 15.

ATS: The Blazers’ winning average in those three wins was 14 points, which bodes well for punters picking the road team to cover the 3.5 points spread.

TOTALs: The total will likely go OVER 227 points. The total has gone OVER in four of the Blazers’ last five games, while the Pelicans boast a top-7 offense at 115 points per game.

Score Prediction: 120-114 Blazers
