Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Portland Trail Blazers are 3.5 games away from chasing the Memphis Grizzlies for the 8th and final spot of the NBA Western Conference playoff standings. They are coming off from back-to-back victories. In their last match against the Washington Wizards, they won by 21 points and thanks to Hassan Whiteside who dominated the paint with 24 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks. Damian Lillard returned and along with CJ McCollum, they combined for 44 points in this game. Carmelo Anthony had one of his better games as he finished with 25 points, five rebounds and two steals.

Phoenix Suns Betting

The Phoenix Suns look like a team that gave up the season already as they lost four straight games including the bottom-dwelling Golden State Warriors. For the past ten games, they have only won three games and there are games that they should have won but given up in the final quarter. In their last match, the Raptors rolled them over by 9 points. In that match, Cameron Johnson was the bright spot in the loss as he came off the bench with 21 points while he drilled five three-point shots in the game. Devin Booker had a double-double along with Ricky Rubio and DeAndre Ayton in the loss.
