Blaze Your Opening Night Trail

Portland Trail Blazers

This week at The Odds Factory, we will be talking about one of founder Jimmy Z's favorite teams, the Portland Trail Blazers. For anyone who doesn't know, they had a pretty great season last year, finishing the regular season as the third seed in the Western Conference for the second consecutive season. Sure, they lost 2 rotation players in free agency, but they have the best healthy backcourt in the game and, this might be held against me in a sanity hearing, but I think Hassan Whiteside is going to help a lot in the absence of Nurkić. And this year looks promising so far.

Denver Nuggets @ Portland Trail Blazers: Portland -1

Sometimes you just got to keep it simple. The Portland Trail Blazers have won 15 straight home openers. Let me repeat, the Portland Trail Blazers have won 15 straight home openers. The Trail Blazers are -1 tonight against the Denver Nuggets. I love the Blazers.

On top of that, the Blazers were a red hot 37-12 at home last year while the Nuggets were a semi-limp 22-25 on the road. I'm not saying to totally discount the Nuggets, but if I were you, the Blazers would be my pick without a second thought.

The Pick: Portland -1
