Best Bets for Thursdays NBA Slate
We have a light 3 game slate tonight, but there’s value to be had if you’re willing to look. The NBA season is about a month old now and teams are starting to figure out what they are and what they aren’t. It’s still early but we’re quickly approaching the ¼ point of the season, so while these teams are not fully formed yet we do know what the sort of are.
This is a pretty good price for a Blazers team that is first in the west and at home. The Brooklyn Nets are an NFT, they’re not real and never have been. They’ve lost 2 games in a row in blowout fashion and have lost 3 of their last 5 total. This is also the last game of a west coast road trip before they head back to Brooklyn, so I expect the guys on the court to be out of gas. There also appears to be some locker room decision with Kevin Durant having some pretty damning quotes about the rest of the talent on the roster and how it’s not good enough to win. The Trailblazers are relatively healthy and I don’t seem them losing this game to the Nets at home, Blazers to win.
