The Blazers have been a terrible road team this season going 3-8 away from the Rose Garden, but they have a legit shot to win tonight facing a reeling Kings’ team that has lost 5 in a row.


Portland Trailblazers (13-9) at Sacramento Kings (6-15)
When: 10 PM ET, Thursday, February 2, 2012
Where: Power Balance Pavilion, Sacramento, CA
Broadcast: CSNS
Blazers vs. Kings Betting Lines from Bovada.lv
Spread: Blazers -3
Moneyline: OFF
Over/Under: 190
*NBA ATS Matchup Report*

In their last games the Blazers were at home and crushed the Charlotte Bobcats 112-68 and the Kings were on the road and lost to the Golden State Warriors 93-90.

The Blazers have won 11 of their last 12 games facing the Kings and they have already beaten them twice this season.

There is no place like home is a saying all about the Blazers so far this season, as at home they are averaging 104.7 ppg, but on the road only 90.5 ppg. At least tonight the Portland offense will be facing a Kings’ defense that ranks 30th in the league in defense.

Gerald Wallace (13.8 ppg) has scored 45 points in the 2 wins over Sacto this season and he and LaMarcus Aldridge combined to score 45 points in the blowout win last night over the Bobcats.

The Kings will need other players than Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins to step up if they are going to snap their losing streak.

Cousins has played great against Portland averaging 20.7 ppg and 11.7 rpg in his last 3 games facing the Blazers, but the Kings are 0-3 in that span.

Portland Trailblazers vs. Sacramento Kings Betting Lines & Handicapping

The Blazers played great D in the easy win over the Bobcats and tonight face a struggling Kings’ offense that has not scored over 100 points in the last 13 games.

The Kings committed 18 turnovers last night and for them to win tonight they will have to hold onto the rock.

Nicolas Batum (11.4 ppg) is out for this game with a bone bruise.

Blazers vs. Kings Handicapping Trends

This season the Blazers are 12-9-1 ATS with an O/U record of 8-14 and the Kings are 8-13 ATS with an O/U record of 7-14.

In some betting trends for this Western Conference match up the Blazers are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 road games, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road favorite, and they have an Under record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.

The Kings are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a home underdog, 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, and they have an Under record of 10-2 in their last 12 games.

Trail Blazers vs. Kings Free Prediction

Pick: The Blazers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games facing the Kings in Sacramento and I think they will move to 6-0 ATS after this game.

Yeah, the Blazers have had their road issues this season, but they will beat the Kings tonight and cover the 3-point spread.
