Game: Utah Jazz vs. Portland Trail Blazers
NBA: 10:00 PM EST
Latest Odds : POR -5.5 Total 192
The NBA tips off tonight with three matchups: Knicks vs. Cavs, Jazz vs. Trail Blazers, and Spurs vs. Warriors. With all attention on the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers and the newly created super team, the Golden State Warriors, there is money to be made by the Portland Trail Blazers. With Utah’s two best players, Gordon Heyward and Derrick Favors in street clothes, the Jazz will most likely find it difficult to score tonight. An aged Joe Johnson will be responsible for the scoring work load and luckily were not in 2007. I expect Damian Lillard and CJ Mccollum to continue their success and easily outscore the jazz by six points.
Pick: POR -5.5
As for the other two games tonight, I don’t like either favorites to cover nine points, the Warriors are too new to each other in my opinion to blow out a talented Spurs, and I believe that Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony will be able to keep it close in Cleveland. Good luck!
