Blazers vs. Thunder Odds & Picks: Dame Time In OKC

Ryan Noonan of Betsperts and 4for4Bets is looking for the Blazers to take advantage of a short-handed Oklahoma Thunder club.

The Blazers continue their six-game road trip in Oklahoma City tonight, with star point guard Damien Lillard set to make history along the way. The six-time all-star needs 21 points to pass Clyde Drexler as the franchise’s all-time leading scorer.

Blazers vs. Thunder Best Bets

Blazers -7.5 (-110, FanDuel)

The Portland Trailblazers have been one of the league’s best road teams this season, so I wouldn’t shy away from laying points here on the road. As it turns out, elite shooting travels. Portland is the league’s best three-point shooting team (38.8%), and the Thunder, likely playing again without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Josh Giddy, don’t have the firepower to compete in this spot. 

OKC is coming off of an impressive win on the road in Memphis on Saturday night since they also played without their top two playmakers in that spot, but after losing all four meetings against the Thunder last season, I don’t think the Blazers will take this undermanned Oklahoma City team lightly.

Risk: 1.1 units on FanDuel to win 1 unit. (Playable to -115)
