Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Portland Trail Blazers have only won once in the last eight games and that is why they are not in play-in contention in the NBA Western Conference. This team needs a good run in order for them to overtake the New Orleans Pelicans who are just above them by one game. This team picked up a win over the Washington Wizards but was not able to bring the momentum in their matchup with the Atlanta Hawks and lost by nine points. Josh Hart has been providing insane numbers finishing 31 points against the Hawks while Trendon Watford also had a notable night with 22 points.

New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks after winning three-straight games have lost their last two matches against the Memphis Grizzlies and Brooklyn Nets. This team is placed 12th in the NBA Eastern Conference standings and as the losses pile up, their chances to make the play-in tournament becomes more unlikely. Julius Randle led the team with 26 points while Evan Fournier and RJ Barrett are not far away providing 25 and 24 points respectively. No other Knick scored in double figures as Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley each had very subpar nights against the Nets.

Players to Watch: Julius Randle PF 66 GP 66 GS 35.5 MIN 20.5 PTS 1.8 OR 8.2 DR 9.9 REB 5.2 AST 0.8 STL 0.6 BLK 3.5 TO 2.9 PF 1.5 AST/TO 16.61 PER
