Golden State Warriors at Portland Trail Blazers odds, picks and prediction

The Golden State Warriors (42-17) kick off the final stretch of the season following the All-Star Break with a road game against the Portland Trail Blazers (25-34). Tip-off for Thursday’s game is 10 p.m. ET at Moda center. Below, we look at the Warriors vs. Trail Blazers odds and lines, and make our expert NBA picks, predictions and bets.

The Warriors are in second place in the Western Conference, trailing the Phoenix Suns by 6.5 games to start the second half of the season. They were fading a bit before the break, losing four of their final five games. G Stephen Curry is coming off a 50-point performance at the All-Star Game. He hit 16 three-point shots to set a record and win the All-Star Game MVP.

The Blazers are in 10th place in the West, which would earn them a spot in the play-in games for the postseason. They closed out the first half of the season winning four straight games following a six-game losing streak.

Warriors at Trail Blazers odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Trail Blazers 121, Warriors 118

Money line

The Warriors have won both matchups so far this season, but both games were in San Francisco. The Blazers are a different team at home than on the road. They are 16-16 at home as opposed to 9-18 away from home, while the Warriors are 16-11 on the road compared to 26-6 at home.

Golden State doesn’t get anyone back from injury that wasn’t already out before the break, so the issues they were having should linger.

The Blazers were playing well enough before the All-Star Game to warrant a bet on them to come away with an outright win. The payout is worth it to bet the TRAIL BLAZERS (+380).

Against the spread

The Warriors have not covered the spread in their last seven games and have failed to do so in eight of their last 10 contests. They are 12-13-2 ATS on the road this season. They won both games against the Blazers at home by double digits. Only four of their last 10 wins have been by double digits.

The Blazers are 15-16-1 ATS at home this season but closed out the first half of the season covering the spread in four straight. They were double-digit underdogs in all four games and won the games outright.

Take the TRAIL BLAZERS +9.5 (-122).

Over/Under

Take OVER 223.5 (-108).

The Warriors allowed 116.8 points per game over the final four games before the All-Star Game. They still will not have Green or Iguodala to help shore up the defense. Seven of the Warriors’ last 10 games have hit the Over.

Portland scored over 120 in their final two games before the break. They allowed 114.0 points per game in their last six.
