NBA Betting Trends
The Blazers are just 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 road games, but 16-5 ATS in their last 21 Wednesday games.
The Grizzlies are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 home games and 7-2 ATS in their last nine overall.
This is the first meeting between these two this season. Portland had been playing pretty well, but the Blazers have lost three of their last five and are playing their third game in four nights, all at a different location. This will actually be their fifth game in seven nights, with none of the consecutive games being in the same place. Memphis, on the other hand, hasn’t played since Sunday. Memphis has an offense and a pace of play that will be difficult for Portland to keep up with tonight. I don’t expect the Blazers to have much in the tank for this one.
NBA Prediction: Memphis Grizzlies -4.5
