Bet On Portland Trail Blazers' Games
You can bet on the Blazers in many ways but the money line is one you’ll need to learn. You will notice two types of numbers: minus and plus number indicating favourite and underdog, respectively. -160 means you need to wager $160 to win $100 while +130 means you win $130 when you bet $100. Alternatively, you can divide your wager by the minus or multiply it by the plus (factor of 100) to see your potential winnings.
Blazermania: the Blazers were the talk of the sports world at the peak of their popularity. In the 1976-1977 season, the Blazers went from a losing team to NBA Champions thanks to an incredible run led by Hall of Famer, Bill Walton. Between that season and 2003, the Blazers made the NBA playoffs except for the 1981-1982 season were they lost a tiebreaker. As a franchise, the Blazers made the playoffs 32 out of their 46 years as of 2016.
Draft experts: a big key to the continued success of the franchise has been the Blazers’ ability to draft star players. With the exception of drafting a few busts like Greg Oden and Sam Bowie (mostly due to injury), the Blazers have selected at least four players who have won Rookie of the Year, over a dozen who have been selected to at least one NBA All-Star Game and at least seven who have made an All-NBA Team.
Going over: another way to bet on the Blazers is by betting the team totals or over/unders. As opposed to picking either team to win, you can try to predict whether the Blazers and their opponent can score over or under the projected game total. Since 2012, Blazers’ games have gone over slightly more at 53.3 percent. As an underdog, their games go over 56.2 percent of the time as opposed to being a favourite at only 49.2 percent.
