Indiana Pacers vs. Portland Trail Blazers CashBet Wagering Analysis

These are teams that are dark horses in their respective conferences. The Portland Trail Blazers have been slumping to start the season but they seem to get the hang of it already. On the other hand, the Indiana Pacers are looking much better as the season progresses. This will be a battle of the coaches and expect a chess match between them.

No More Oladipo

The Indiana Pacers just made a bold move of letting go of high-scoring guard Victor Oladipo for Caris LeVert. They will still not have LeVert in this game but the Pacers bench can run deep with Doug McDermott and Aaron Holiday. Domantas Sabonis has been playing fantastic basketball and Myles Turner had his best game of the season during their most recent match against the Golden State Warriors. They may be shorthanded at the backcourt position without Oladipo and TJ Warren won’t be returning soon but the team has a good step-up mentality from its role players.

The Steady Climb

The Portland Trail Blazers has been doing pretty well and now has a 6-4 record after a four-game winning streak. Damian Lillard is doing pretty well but the team has been anchored by CJ McCollum who has been playing like an NBA All-Star. This team is deep and has a double-headed dragon at the center position with Enes Kanter and Jusuf Nurkic sharing minutes. Carmelo Anthony has been fantastic for them in closing out games and the veteran scorer is much deadlier with the attention going to McCollum and Lillard. The team needs more from Ryan Covington and keep Domantas Sabonis busy.

Indiana Pacers vs. Portland Trail Blazers Head-to-Head with Spread

The center battle will be very interesting and Myles Turner will have his hands full. Meanwhile, the Pacers Malcolm Brogdon needs to come up with a good game to keep C/J. McCollum and Damian Lillard on their feet. The bench will be an x-factor and will make a huge difference in the outcome.

With the recent momentum that the Portland Trail Blazers have, this should be their game to take. The Indiana Pacers will have a hard time with their depth without Victor Oladipo but that will be just temporary for them. Putting your faith in Portland would look logical as seen in Sports Gambling and expect the score to dance around 110-105.
