The Charlotte Hornets are in Portland Friday night to face the struggling Trail Blazers. Portland dropped seven games in a row and quickly fell out of the playoff picture, just one in the play-ins but more than three in eighth place.
Both teams played horribly on the defensive side, so could this be the point where Damian Lillard is on the right track?
Let’s break down the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook and find the best bet.
Total: 230 (Above -110/Under -110)
As I mentioned above, these two teams are terrible at defence. The Hornets have the worst defensive ratings in the league, according to NBA.com, while the Blazers aren’t far behind with fourth-worst numbers.
Of course, Charlotte made up for their defensive woes with the second-best attack in the league. The scenario of the match is quite predictable with this team, they will play up and down to get points. The team has lost 8 of the last 10 matches.
Portland’s offense has fallen short of their typical numbers, but Hornet could be a good start for Lillard and co. So far, the game Overs in Charlotte has been an ATM, and we’re still waiting for ‘Dame Time’, so I’ll be clear about this total here.
PICK: OVER 230
