The NBA Playoffs odds favor Portland even though Houston destroyed the Blazers 108-81 in Game 1 on Saturday.
NBA Playoffs betting trends did favor the Blazers in this series, especially at home but on Saturday night they were picked apart by a flawless Houston team. Yao Ming had 24 points in the first half when the game was pretty much decided. Aaron Brooks added 27 points while Luis Scola had 19 and Ron Artest had 17. The victory came as a surprise to many NBA Playoffs betting gamblers since Houston has not made it out of the first round in their last six tries. It was expected in NBA Playoffs betting that the Blazers would win at home where they went 34-7 during the regular season. NBA Playoffs betting stats show that Brandon Roy had 21 points to lead Portland while the rest of the team did very little. "We're disappointed, but we can't let this break us," Roy said. "We've got to come together and find some confidence because we can play with them. We just have to believe we can." Yao doesn't have any doubts that the Blazers will do just that.
