Thunder at Trail Blazers odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Thunder 110, Blazers 101

Money line

This is a battle of struggling teams, but the Blazers seem to be struggling the most. The Thunder have lost 11 of their last 12 contests and recently had a 10-game losing skid, but the Blazers are just 2-13 since the All-Star break and have lost 11 of those games by at least 17 points. Eight of those losses have been by at least 30 points.

Nine games during the Thunder’s 10-game skid came to teams who will be in the playoffs or the play-in games. This is the first game all season the Thunder have been favored on the road.

Take the THUNDER (-145).
