Portland Trail Blazers +150 Money line

The Warriors (-4) are tough to beat at Chase Center, proving so with a 24-7 home record this season. Meanwhile, the Trail Blazers have struggled on the road, losing eight of their last 10 away games.

Golden State will be without Steph Curry, Andrew Wiggins, and Andre Iguodala when the two teams face off for a third time.

The Warriors are 11-12 without Curry this season, including a February 8 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Damian Lillard has been on fire recently, averaging 52.3 points per game across his last five, including a 71-point explosion against the Houston Rockets in his last game.

With the Warriors missing key players and the Blazers having a red-hot Damian Lillard, they have great value to win (+150) and cover the spread on NBA sportsbooks.

Over 235.5 (-110)

The over has hit in five of the last six Portland Trail Blazers games.

Warriors’ overs are 4-4 since Steph Curry’s injury, proving they can still get to the number despite the absence of their best scorer.

In their first meeting, they fell short and combined for 230 points.

When the two teams met again on February 8, they combined for 247 points in a game that Steph curry was sidelined.

With Jordan Poole scoring 38 and Klay Thompson scoring 31, the Warriors proved they can score on the Trail Blazers without Steph Curry.

The consistent high-level scoring production from Damian Lillard gives great value to the over for Thursday night’s matchup.

Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson 30+ Points Each +175

Klay Thompson scored 31 points in both matchups against the Trail Blazers this season.

Damian Lillard has scored 30 or more in each of his last five games. He has 12 games this season with 40+ and is averaging 40 points across nine games in February.

When the Blazers and Warriors last met, both players scored over 30 points.

A Bovada special of Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson each scoring 30+ points would payout $275 on a $100 bet.

The +175 odds on online gambling sites are valuable based on Thompson and Lillard’s consistency with scoring 30+ points.
