It will be the first of four meetings this season between the former rivals. Basketball betting information shows that it is also the first time the teams have met since the Thunder moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City.
Basketball betting scheduling information tells us that the Blazers are playing the last game of their three-game road trip tonight. NBA betting trends show that the Blazers have lost four of the last six meetings between the two teams and they are an even worse 3-7 against the basketball odds.
Portland has had much of their success this season at home. They have struggled against the basketball betting odds on the road. The Blazers have a defense that is ranked in the Top 10 as basketball betting stats show but their offense can be inconsistent. Brandon Roy normally leads the team in most offensive categories on a nightly basis as basketball betting numbers show.
Oklahoma City may not have very many wins straight up this season but they have been a major success against the basketball betting odds. The Thunder have a winning home record and a great road record versus the basketball odds. Normally Oklahoma City is getting points in every game and the Thunder has shown they can stay close and cover the basketball betting number. Kevin Durant has led the team in scoring this season as basketball betting statistics show. The Thunder are very young but they continue to improve and are not automatic win anymore, especially against the NBA betting odds.
Four of the last five and six of the last seven meetings between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting total. Whether that basketball betting trend will continue in Oklahoma City is the question but considering neither team has a great offense, Friday’s game could stay under the basketball betting total.
