Why Bet on the Portland Trail Blazers?
The Blazers hold the best home record in the NBA this season, winning nine of ten games at the Moda Center. However, their incredible performance in front of their home crowd is offset by a poor road record.
As a team, the Blazers average 110.9 points (fifth) per game on 46.2% shooting (ninth). They remain one of the best three-point shooting teams in the league with a 35.6% record from downtown (tenth). On top of that, they average 13.8 three-pointers (fifth) in 19 games. Damian Lillard is the team’s highest scorer with 22.3 points per game and at the same time leads assists at 8.06 per game.
The visitors allowed 117 points or more in four of their last five road games. Overall, they average 109.6 opponent points (23rd) since the start of the season. The Blazers have one of the worst rebounding records with 52.6 total rebounds (23rd) per game. Surprisingly, the Blazers are a better offensive rebounding team. The side collects 10.5 offensive boards (12th) per game.
The Blazers challenge the Warriors with a fresh starting lineup. No significant injuries hold the team back for now, which should bring us a heated battle between two of the best shooters in the league right now, Damian Lillard and Stephen Curry.
Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?
The Warriors are on a different level right now. The team currently owns a 16-2 record and the top spot of the Western Conference. They also have a lengthy winning streak at home, losing just one of eleven games.
The team is competent on both ends of the court. This is a characteristic that makes them arguably the best in the league right now. The Warriors record 114.3 points (first) per game on 57.9% shooting. Moreover, the team scored 116 points or more in three of their last four games. They also execute flawless passing and top the league in assists at 29.4 per game.
Their offense complements capable defensive skills. The team allows 100.8 opponent points (first) per game and holds opponents to 42.0% shooting (first). The Dubs also collect 54.8 total rebounds per game and dominate defensive rebounds with 37.6 boards (third) per game. Draymond Green is the squad’s leading rebounder averaging 8.0 per game.
The Warriors have a healthy starting lineup come Friday night. Andre Iguodala remains out with a sore right knee, while James Wiseman still recovers from meniscus surgery.
