The New Orleans Hornets have been dreadful this season and things will not get any easier for them when they head to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers on Thursday night. For odds and spreads on all sports, all the time visit Oddsmaker sportsbook.
Portland has played well despite having a record that may not necessarily reflect that. They are 23-37, but play in a very tough division. The Trail Blazers are a very well-balanced team. They score 96.7 points per game and give up 96 points per game. Both numbers put them in the middle of the league in terms of rankings as well.
The Hornets have continued to struggle since the beginning of the season and just have 13 wins on the season, amassing just a 13-37 win-loss record so far. The Hornets find themselves in the basement of the standings and trail the division leading Spurs by 22.5 games for first place. The defense is not the problem for the Hornets as they just allow 93 points per game. Offense is a different story as the team can flat out not find ways to score consistently as seen by the fact that they just score 89 points per game.
The Trail Blazers are just 5-11 ATS in their last 16 ATS overall. They are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 at home as well. The Hornets have not faired very well in their last 5 ATS in Portland going just 1-4.
The number in this game looks a little low to me. The play here might be the over, as we can see the total ending up a shade higher than the projected number. Before your bet read the best online sportsbook reviews.
