Wizards Hate Travelling to Portland

The Portland Trail Blazers have had no issue lighting up the scoreboard as of late, but unfortunately for Blazers backers, neither have their opponents. Portland is averaging 110.5 points per game over their last 12, however, they’ve suffered some major lapses on the defensive end, as they’re giving up 118.7 points in their past three defeats. Damian Lillard and company will be seeking a better outcome when they welcome the Washington Wizards to town Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Trail Blazers' last nine games with one day off between games.
  • The Wizards are 1-6 SU and ATS in their last seven games against teams with winning records.
  • The Trail Blazers are 9-3 SU and ATS in their last 12 games as a favorite of 5.5 or less.

The good news for Portland is they’ve been historically great at home versus Washington. In their previous 10 matchups with the Wiz in Oregon, the Blazers are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS. Portland has gone a solid 9-2 SU in its last 11 at Moda Center.

The Wizards will be forced to try and keep up with Portland’s backcourt without shooting guard Bradley Beal. Beal is on the shelf with a strained hip that he suffered in a 100-99 loss to Indiana on Saturday and is reportedly out for the team’s three-game road trip.

That means star point guard John Wall will be leaned on heavily. Wall is averaging 24.5 points on 51.4 percent shooting and 11.5 assists in his last two games in Portland.
