Opening with -1 for this match, in today's conditions? Hillarious.
The lines have moved consistently afterwards, but I still see betting value here. A lot, I'd say.
Portland are, in these days, a depleted team. They are deeply bleeding in the paint, where Robin Lopez is missing from mid december, Joel Freeland already misses for 2 weeks and both are expected to return in february. Now, the really decisive missing is that of Lamarcus Aldrige, the no1 man of Portland and one of the best players in NBA. He will have a surgery on his radial collateral ligament tear and he will miss for at least 6 weeks from now. Besides, also Nick Batum will probably miss this game and Chris Kaman is still questionable. We are talking about 5 guys, 3 starters, all from the frontcourt. Man, this team is damn unbalanced right now!
In these conditions the Traiblazers will be far from being able to compete against one of the most balanced teams in NBA, the Washington Wizards. Moreover the guests are coming tonight in Portland to bounce back after one of the few losses lately (they have 7 wins in the last 10games). They've been knocked by the Spurs on their own arena and that has to be compensated. Unlucky victims will be the depleted Blazers.
I expect a win somewhere between 5 and 15 points for the Wizards in this game.
Let's go green!
