NBA Betting Trends

New Orleans

The Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games versus the Southwest Division. Portland is 0-4 ATS in its last four Tuesday games.

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last five Tuesday games. New Orleans is 4-1 in its last five games versus the Western Conference.

Prediction:

The Blazers are on a back-to-back and facing a New Orleans team that could be getting a couple players back from injury tonight. I think fatigue will play a factor here and with Portland struggling so much this season, I have no problem taking a home dog against it on the second night of a back-to-back.
