Basketball Betting - Portland visits Memphis

Basketball betting on Monday includes a matchup in Memphis between the Grizzlies and Portland Trail Blazers.

The Blazers are playing the 2nd game of a five-game road trip and they are in a tough back-to-back situation that gamblers who bet on basketball will want to be aware of as they were in Atlanta last night.

Basketball betting scheduling information also shows that Memphis is playing the second half of a back-to-back as well since they were at Detroit last night. Basketball betting trends do favor the Blazers in this matchup as Portland has won six of the last ten meetings between the two teams. They are an even better 7-3 against the basketball odds. The Blazers have won three of the last four games at Memphis and they are 4-0 against the basketball odds in those games. Last month in Portland the Blazers squeaked out a 94-90 victory but did not cover the 11.5 point basketball betting odds.

Portland has been a better team at home than on the road and that could be a factor in basketball betting in this matchup. The Blazers have struggled on the road at times this season both straight up and against the basketball betting number. Portland ranks in the Top 10 on defense as basketball betting stats indicate. Brandon Roy has led the team in scoring most of the season as bet on basketball numbers indicate. He does get support on a regular basis from LaMarcus Aldridge, Steve Blake and rookie Rudy Fernandez.

Memphis has a young team that has lost both straight up and against the basketball betting number. The Grizzlies have a losing record at home against the basketball betting odds. Memphis has virtually no offense but they do have hope with young players like O.J. Mayo, Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol and others.

Seven of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. At Memphis, the over/under numbers are 2-2 in the last four games as bet on basketball stats indicate. Since both teams play good defense the under could be the way to go for gamblers who bet on basketball.
