NBA Betting: Houston Rockets vs. Portland Trail Blazers

NBA betting includes a Western Conference game between the Rockets and the Trail Blazers as online basketball betting fans will get a late west coast treat!

NBA betting fans are excited about the return of the Houston Rockets to likely contention this season and online basketball betting fans may be getting a bit carried away, however, as the Rockets started off the NBA betting season with three straight wins, but failed to beat the NBA betting odds in two of those three games.

This is a clear indicator that there was not a lot of online basketball betting value with the highly touted Rockets to begin the NBA betting season.  Houston also went under the NBA betting total in two of those three games.

Portland, on the other hand, has failed to impress online basketball betting fans as they lost two of their first three games both straight up and against the NBA betting lines.

Houston has impressed online basketball betting fans with their defense so far in the young NBA betting campaign as it has been near air tight and ranked near the top of the NBA betting stats.  Offensively, however, the Rockets have underperformed and are ranked in the bottom half of the NBA betting stats.

The Rockets received a lot of pre season hype from online basketball betting fans because center Yao Ming returns from injury to join Tracy McGrady and newly acquired Ron Artest in what many NBA betting experts believe will be one of the most improved teams, especially when you add new coach Rick Adelman to the mix.

Adelman has won wherever he as coached and has experience with the volatile Artest.  It is an NBA betting fact of life, however, that a gambler doesn’t want to get too attached to any team receiving so much attention from the NBA betting community as there is often a lack of value to go with the hype.

Portland is so lightly regarded in NBA betting circles that they may actually command some value as the season progresses.  One NBA betting fact of life is that a team will often perform opposite of their straight up record.
