Celtics vs Trail Blazers Betting Odds – Celtics will get by ailing Blazers

NBA Odds: Pick Celtics


The Celtics vs Trail Blazers betting odds should set up a defensive matchup between two smother teams and the fact that the Blazers may be without their best player won’t exactly help. Online betting cappers should see the Celtics outlast the Blazers on the road in a grind of a win.

What: NBA Betting
When: Friday, February 19th - 10:30 PM ET
Where: Rose Garden – Portland, OR
Key Stat: Trail Blazers 3-4 in last seven home games


The Storyline – Celtics vs Trail Blazers betting odds

The Celtics needed to make a move at the trade deadline and Nate Robinson is the answer so far. While it won’t alleviate the chemistry issues, it will give the Celtics an explosive scorer in the back court who can play better defense than Eddie House. Robinson has also been known to give his team a spark, which is exactly what the Celtics need.

Meanwhile, Portland flailing. With star guard Brandon Roy battling a hamstring injury, the Blazers have been struggling to win games. They have become a solid defensive team but that won’t get them any further than they went last year. They need a healthy Roy and they may not have one for the rest of the season.

 

Offensive Matchups – Celtics vs Trail Blazers betting odds breakdown 

The Celtics offense has been struggling lately but if they can pick up Robinson, they’ll get a boost. Sports betting cappers know that this team is very capable but they will back on the second game of a back-to-back on the road. They’ll need some fresh legs to get this win.

The Blazers made a move at the deadline to pick up center Marcus Camby, but he helps their defense more than their offense. With Roy ailing, players like Martell Webster have stepped up, but the team still needs more help. They just can’t win shootouts unless he is healthy.

Defensive Matchups – Celtics vs Trail Blazers betting odds

As far as defense goes, these are two of the better teams in the NBA and the sportsbook odds makers should have a low total for this contest. The Celtics play a tough brand of defense every night and Friday will be no different.

The Trail Blazers have improved their defensive game this year more by necessity than anything else, and they are now the fourth-ranked defensive team in the NBA. With Camby in tow, the Trail Blazers will get an even bigger boost in rebounding and blocked shots.

Notable Injuries – Celtics vs Trail Blazers betting odds

With Roy out or playing hampered, the reality is the Blazers are just not the same team. They need their All-Star to be taken seriously.

Betting Prediction – Celtics vs Trail Blazers betting odds breakdown 

This will be an ugly basketball game as both teams are in the top four in defense. Plus, the Trail Blazers just added Camby, which should make this even more of an ‘under’ type of contest.

The Blazers are shorthanded and the Celtics will be fatigued playing their third road game in four nights. Even so, look for them to scratch out an ugly win.


CRAIG’s Pick: Celtics
