Basketball betting experts think that Portland will still win some games in 2007-2008 even without Oden. The Blazers still have last year’s Rookie of the Year Brandon Roy to make their NBA betting on and forward LaMarcus Aldridge to excite fans of basketball betting.
The team traded away Zach Randolph to the Celtics and although his scoring will be missed his problems will not. The Blazers are going to be undervalued all season long because everyone that looks at basketball betting will know that Oden is out. That could give the Blazers nice NBA betting line value.
They will need to find someone to play the point as Jarret Jack does not look like the answer. It could be that Steve Blake ends up with the starting job and that may not be bad news for Portland or for basketball betting fans. The other guard position is all about Brandon Roy as NBA betting fans well know.
As he goes so go the Blazers this season. Experts at NBA betting know that he is the catalyst for the offense and makes everyone around him better. The small forward position is a mess with James Jones, Travis Outlaw and Martell Webster. None of these three gives fans or basketball betting players much to cheer about.
Fans of basketball betting know that the other forward spot will be manned by Channing Frye who the Blazers got in the Zach Randolph trade. He is a solid forward with a lot of potential. The center position will be taken by LaMarcus Aldridge who should have a solid year for fans of basketball betting.
Portland is going to be an interesting team to follow in terms of this season. They could easily be undervalued in terms of basketball betting lines this season. As you look at basketball betting odds this season don’t forget that Portland may give you opportunities for profit.
