Online Basketball Betting: Portland Trailblazers vs. NJ Nets

Online basketball betting Thursday includes an interesting matchup between Portland and New Jersey in inter-conference NBA basketball betting action.

Online basketball betting value on these two teams would likely be the opposite of what most NBA basketball betting handicappers would expect.  The Portland Trailblazers, at first glance, would seem be to an online basketball betting surprise with their 22-14 straight up record.

Against the spread, however, Portland’s NBA basketball betting value has been below par as they were just 16-20 against the NBA betting lines.  Portland has been a poor online basketball betting away team as well as they went just 6-12 against the spread.

In over/under NBA basketball betting action the Trail Blazers went under the total in 11 out of 18 road games.  Portland ranked 14th overall on offense and a solid 9th overall on defense.  Brandon Roy has been the main online basketball betting asset for Portland as he was averaging 22.8 points per game to lead the team.

Roy also led Portland in assists with an average of 5.2 per game.  Joel Przybilla was the leading rebounder with an average of 8 per game.  Portland got off to a poor online basketball betting start to the new year as they covered just 1 of their first 4 games in 2009.

The New Jersey Nets would not appear to have a lot of online basketball betting value at first glance when considering their straight up record of 18-19.  But the Nets have actually produced an online basketball betting profit so far this season as they were 21-16 against the NBA betting lines.

But before anyone gets too excited, the Nets have not had much online basketball betting value at home as they were just 8-12 against the spread, with a mirror mark of 8-12 under the total at home.  The Nets have a strong online basketball betting trend going, in fact, as they road team was 25-12 against the board in all of their games this season.
