Blazers are ATS Road Warriors

A potential first-round playoff preview kicks off on Monday when the surprising Portland Trail Blazers travel to Oklahoma City to face off against the slumping Thunder. The Blazers continue to play well outside of Oregon and have been a profitable bet as of late, going 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road contests.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 1-3 ATS in their last four games as home favorites.
  • The Trail Blazers are 10-2 SU and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games against the Western Conference.
  • The Trail Blazers are 2-6 SU and ATS in their last eight games on the road against the Thunder.

What is going on with the Thunder right now? Despite possessing some of the best talent in the Association, OKC has dropped eight out of their last 12 and five of their previous home games to sit at 44-22 SU.

While the Thunder haven’t been a reliable spread play this season, they are continuing to be a fantastic source of UNDERs. The UNDER is 5-1 in Oklahoma City’s last six, and is 29-37 O/U on the campaign. The UNDER is also 10-4 in the last 14 matchups between the Western Conference clubs.

Portland’s standout point guard Damian Lillard is a major reason for his team’s success this season. Lillard has totalled 36 points in his last two games, but is coming off a three-game stretch where he averaged 39.
