Portland Trail Blazers Betting

Sure, the loss to their rival Nuggets definitely stings but the Trail Blazers are going to be just fine. Despite a significant roster overhaul this summer, Portland still went toe-to-toe with the Nuggets before missing on important shots late in the game. Damian Lillard recorded 32 points and 8 dimes but he’s missing production from his backcourt partner CJ McCollum, who just scored 12 points on cold 5-for-18 shooting. Center Hassan Whiteside impressed in his Blazers debut with 16 points and 19 boards.

Players to Watch Damian Lillard (32.0 PPG and 8.0 APG), Hassan Whites (16.0 PPG and 18.0 RPG) and Rodney Hood (13.0 PPG and 5.0 RPG).

Sacramento Kings Betting

The Kings must be punching themselves in the gut right now after blowing a significant second-half lead. Buddy Hield erupted for 28 points but his backcourt partner De’Aaron Fox only came up with 8 points and 5 assists across his name. Sacramento shot a cold 39.1 percent from the field and committed 26 turnovers.

Players to Watch: Buddy Hield (28.0 PPG and 5.0 RPG), Marvin Bagley III (14.0 PPG and 10.0 RPG) and De’Aaron Fox (8.0 PPG and 5.0 APG)

Portland Trail Blazers vs Sacramento Kings Betting Picks

It doesn’t take a betting expert to know that the Blazers are coming in as the overwhelming favorite on Friday. The Blazers are a cool 7-3 in the last 10 head-to-head encounters with the Kings. And over that number of games, Portland averaged 111.9 points per game while shooting 48.4 percent from the field. Meanwhile, Sacramento just averaged 106.4 points on 44.77 field goal clip.

Moneyline: ESPN Basketball power index put the Blazers’ winning percentage at a slim 52.2 percent. However, now that the Kings will be missing Bagley and probably Hield vs. Portland, betting on the Kings to pull off an upset is a risky venture.

ATS: The Blazers are surprisingly just -2.5 favorite coming into the game. Portland, who has a 5-4-1 ATS record against Sacramento in the last 10 games, will easily take a double-digit victory in this one.

TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 228 points. The Blazers will definitely score more than 110 points in this game, knowing that Sacramento isn’t much known for its defense. As for the Kings, they just scored 95 points with Bagley and Heild on the floor. Now that they are facing the prospect of missing one or probably two of its starters, scoring more than 100 would be a tall order.

Score Prediction: Predicted Score: 118-96 Blazers
