Betting on the Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets are having a nightmare start to the 2022/23 NBA season, as they have won just one of their five games so far. This victory came against the Utah Jazz by a score of 114-108, earlier this week, but now they have suffered their fourth loss by losing 109-101, precisely against that same rival.
The other losses were to the Milwaukee Bucks (125-105), the Memphis Grizzlies (122-129), and the Atlanta Hawks (117-107). They are the team with the highest number of losses in the Southwest Division, and that has them in last place in that classification.
Betting on the Portland Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers were unable to keep their undefeated streak in their latest performance: the franchise lost 98-119 to the Miami Heat. This ends the unbeaten streak in the Western Conference. The Trail Blazers had been solid in their first four games.
They beat the Sacramento Kings 108-115 in their first game of the season, and that raised hopes among fans. Then after a tie in regular time, they won 113-111 in overtime against the Phoenix Suns. In a close game against the Los Angeles Lakers they won 104-106, while their last victory came in a 135-110 win over the Denver Nuggets.
They are currently the second-best team in the Northeast Division, behind only the Utah Jazz.
Despite the recent setback, the Portland Trail Blazers are the clear favorites to win this game, due to the level they have shown and the current situation of their opponent.
Prediction: Portland Trail Blazers win by 8 points.
