NBA Betting Trends
The Warriors are 7-18-1 against the spread in their last 26 games following a win and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a losing team.
The Blazers are 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games following a loss and 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite.
The home team has won both meetings this season, but the Warriors had Stephen Curry for their win at home. Golden State had a nice win over the Magic on Saturday, but their road performances have been quite lackluster. Their last four road games have been losses by 9 points or more. While Portland is without McCollum, the team still has a lot of offensive weapons and will have the best playing on the floor in Lillard. Both teams struggle on defense and Portland is the more consistent offense while also playing at home.
NBA Prediction: Portland Trail Blazers -6.5
