Both teams look like playoff teams as Detroit has been in the 5th spot in the Eastern Conference for much of the season while Portland holds the same spot in the Western Conference. Gamblers that bet on basketball could easily choose either side of this matchup.
As seen in basketball betting scheduling information, Detroit is playing the second game of a four-game road trip. The bet on basketball numbers favor Portland to some extent in this matchup. The Pistons have won 6 of the last 10 meetings overall but the Blazers are 7-3 against the basketball odds. This has been a road team series in basketball betting. The Pistons have won four of the last five games against the Blazers in Portland as bet on basketball numbers reflect. The Blazers won earlier this season in Detroit by a score of 96-85 as basketball betting results indicate. LaMarcus Aldridge had 27 points in that earlier meeting to lead the Blazers as basketball betting stats show. Richard Hamilton led the Pistons with 18 points as basketball betting statistics have it.
Portland has been a very good home team this season both straight up and against the basketball betting number. Brandon Roy has led the Blazers in scoring as basketball betting numbers show but he gets help. Aldridge, Rudy Fernandez, Steve Blake and even Greg Oden can contribute and impact the basketball betting odds.
Detroit has a balanced offensive attack where Allen Iverson, Hamilton, Rasheed Wallace, Tayshaun Prince or even Rodney Stuckey can lead the team in scoring. The Pistons are not quite as good defensively with Iverson in the lineup but they are still capable of winning against the basketball odds.
8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams have gone under the bet on basketball total. At Portland, three of the last five have gone under the basketball betting total.
