Basketball Betting: Miami Heat vs. Portland Trailblazers

Basketball betting Wednesday features an inter-conference matchup as the Miami Heat heads to Portland to meet the surprising Trailblazers.

Basketball betting handicappers expected the Miami Heat to improve this year as Dwyane Wade would return healthy and ready for action.  Miami’s online basketball betting value, however, would be another story as their improvement with Wade’s return would rise expectations amongst the basketball betting public, and thus their price on the basketball betting odds board as a result.

Miami began the basketball betting season with a record of 6-6 straight up and 5-6-1 against the spread.  In over/under basketball betting action Miami was 7-5 under the total with 4 of their first 6 road games going under the total.  At the start of the basketball betting season Miami was ranked 15th on offense while ranking 10th on defense.

Wade led the Heat in scoring (28.2 points per game) and assists (8-per game).  Shawn Marion was the leading glass cleaner for Miami with an average of 9-rebounds per game.  Basketball betting experts have been surprised by the start of the Portland Trailblazers.

Portland began the online basketball betting season with a record of 8-5 both straight up and against the basketball betting odds.  Portland was 3-1 against the spread at home to start the basketball betting season.  In over/under basketball betting action Portland was 8-5 to the over with an even 2-2 split at home.

Portland began the basketball betting season ranked 8th overall on offense while ranking 13th on defense.  Brandon Roy opened the basketball betting season as the Trailblazers’ leading scorer with an average of 20-points per game.

Roy also led in assists with an average of 5-per game while Joel Przybilla was the top rebound man with an average of 7.5-per game.  From November 10-21 Portland was a cash cow by covering 6 out of 7 games against the spread!  The key question is when the public will begin to really take notice and jack up the price on the Blazers.
