Golf odds – Pick Paul Casey +1600

The Portland Trail Blazers are hanging on to the last playoff spot in the Western Conference but a seemingly innocuous matchup with the Golden State Warriors shouldn’t be underestimated. Online betting cappers know that overall, the Blazers are the better team but the Warriors are at home, which makes this about an even matchup.

  • What: NBA Betting
  • Where: Oracle Arena – Oakland, CA
  • When: Thursday March 11th – 10:30 PM ET
  • Defending Champion: Blazers have won four of five

The Storyline

The Trail Blazers are the eighth seed in the West right now and they have a comfortable cushion. But they don’t want to finish eighth because a matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round will end up as a quick one. A couple of wins can get them as high as fifth, which is far more ideal.

For Golden State, they are eyeing next year but they are still developing talent. Young guns like Stephen Curry continue to improve each and every day, giving the franchise at least a shred of optimism for the future

Offensive Matchups – Trail Blazers vs Warriors Picks

The Blazers are not known as an offensive juggernaut but they have been scoring well of late. They have topped 100 points in seven of their last eight games as the hobbled Brandon Roy is getting help from his supporting cast. Sportsbook bettors know the same will have to happen on Thursday as the Warriors are a high-scoring outfit.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are one of the highest scoring teams in the league. Their most recent developmental league call up, Reggie Williams, has been a nice find. The problem is that they have a ton of injuries to overcome and that’s taken a big bite out of their depth.

Betting Edge: Even

Defensive Matchups – Trail Blazers vs Warriors Picks

The Trail Blazers are a top defensive team in the NBA, which is where they will really have an edge in this game. With players like Marcus Camby on the interior, the Trail Blazers should be able to protect the basket and outrebound the Warriors.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are simply atrocious on defense – if they play any at all. They are coming off of a game where they allowed 135 points in regulation to the New Orleans Hornets, who have struggled to score points all year long. The Warriors best defense is to outscore the other team, but sports betting cappers know that rarely works for them.

Betting Edge:

Notable Injuries – Trail Blazers vs Warriors Picks

The Warriors have a ton of injuries and they are extremely shorthanded. The list includes: Monta Ellis, Ronny Turiaf, Andris Biedrins, Raja Bell, Vladimir Radmanovic, Brandan Wright, Kelena Azubuike and Anthony Randolph.

The Trail Blazers are – and have been – without Greg Oden for most of the season.

Betting Edge: Trail Blazers

Betting Prediction – Trail Blazers vs Warriors Picks

Almost everything favors the Trail Blazers here except for the fact that they are on the road. They are just 17-15 on the road while the Warriors are 13-18 at home. Portland will probably win this game but the Warriors will hang around and give them a tough fight

Pick: Trail Blazers
