NBA betting scheduling information tells us that it is the second game of a four-game road trip for the Blazers. Most of the NBA betting trends favor the Rockets at home in this matchup.
Basketball betting trends tell us that Houston has won 7 of the last 10 games against Portland and they are 6-4 against the NBA odds in those games. The Rockets have won four of the last five games at home against the Blazers although they are just 2-3 against the NBA odds. The teams have met twice previously this season and each team won close games at home. The Rockets won 98-84 at home while the Blazers won 101-99 in Portland as NBA betting results indicate.
Portland has been a Jekyll and Hyde team this season since they are strong at home and weak on the road in terms of NBA betting odds. Portland should actually be better on the road versus the NBA betting line considering they play strong defense. Normally teams win on the road with defense and efficient scoring and that is the recipe that Portland uses. So far this season it has not been effective since the Blazers are below .500 on the road versus the basketball betting odds. Brandon Roy has led the Blazers in scoring this season and he makes a lot of big plays.
Houston is a strong team in the Western Conference but they have a losing record at home versus the NBA betting pointspread. The Rockets win with a defense that is in the Top 5 in the league as NBA betting statistics show and an offense that scores just enough with Ron Artest and Yao Ming. Houston rarely wins by big margins and that can be a problem for gamblers that are continually laying points with the Rockets in NBA betting.
The total trends in this game are definitely mixed as the last three games between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting number but six of the previous seven had gone under. At Houston, four of the last five have gone under the basketball betting total.
