Trail Blazers vs Pelicans Betting Prediction

Here is our Trail Blazers vs Pelicans Betting prediction.

They will play each other again this year. This time, the Portland Trail Blazers (19-47; 31-34-1 ATS) will play the New Orleans Pelicans (39-26; 35-28-2 ATS). The first game was in February, and the Pelicans won 93–84 on the road. Smoothie King Center will host on Saturday at 7 p.m. EDT. Will going on the road help Portland get back at the Pelicans, or are they too strong for them?

Portland Trail Blazers Betting Prediction

First, we have the Trail Blazers vs Pelicans Betting prediction for Portland.

The Trail Blazers went on the road after a disappointing 93-point game against the Knicks on Thursday. That’s been the standard for Portland this season, which is a shame. When it comes to offense and scoring, the Blazers are 28th this season. Their problems start with having the worst true shooting rate in the NBA. They are last in how well they use the rim and 25th in how well they make three-pointers. Also, the Blazers have the 27th worst mistake rate. You can say that Portland has the fourth best offensive rebounding rate, but that’s not good enough to do well in the NBA. We should check to see if they do better now that they’re on the road.

On the other hand, Portland ranks 21st when it comes to defense. The Trail Blazers are fourth in the NBA in turnovers per game, which shows that this is a busy team. They also give up the fifth-lowest percentage of three-point shots and the sixth-fewest tries. They are the worst at protecting the basket, though. They also give up the 26th most free throws and the 29th most defensive rebounds. Can they keep New Orleans below 100 once more, or was that just a flash in the pan?

Out are Shaedon Sharpe, Malcolm Brogdon, and Jabari Walker.

New Orleans Pelicans Betting Prediction

Trail Blazers vs Pelicans Betting prediction for NOLA.

They play the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday, which is a big game. The group should be just as healthy for this game as they were for the first one. New Orleans has all of their stars in one place, which is good for a team that ranks sixth in defense. The Pelicans force the most three-point shots to miss of any team (they give up the second-most tries) and let up the ninth-lowest percentage of shots at the basket. The proportion of defensive rebounds this team gets is 14th, their turnover rate is 8th per game, and they allow 7 free throw attempts per game. This is a tough group all around.

Zion Williamson scores 22.3 points per game, which is the most in a group that ranks 11th in offensive rating. They have the fifth-best three-point percentage in the league, which helps them rank tenth in true shooting percentage. They are also 10th in the country at making field goals at the basket. The Pelicans try eight free shots more than any other team. Their offensive rebounding rate is only 15th best and their turnover percentage is only 16th best, but that doesn’t really hurt them. Are they going to beat the Blazers again?

Dyson Daniels is out.

Trail Blazers vs Pelicans Betting Pick

You can’t give this game to anyone else at home, not even in the second half of a back-to-back. Their defense is too strong for Portland’s offense to handle. Earlier this season, the Pelicans held them to 84 points for example. In terms of points scored, the Trail Blazers are 28th.

On the other hand, New Orleans has the attacking tools to beat Portland, especially at the basket. That’s where the Pelicans love to shoot, and the Blazers are the worst team in the NBA at making other teams miss. Saturday is likely to be a blowout in favor of the home team.
