Trail Blazers fancied to topple in-form Pacers in NBA four-fold
With five NBA matches tipping off between midnight and 3:00 AM, there won’t be a better sight after you rub the sleep from your eyes than a boosted betting balance after siding with this 3/1 four-fold.
Each franchise enters the game with their poster boys out injured. Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is confined to rehab with another knee injury, while Pelicans forward, Anthony Davis, misses out with a hand problem.
While that may level the playing field somewhat, the fact that Chicago is at home, with an extra days rest in their legs, gives them the edge. They are one of just three teams in the NBA undefeated in their own building and have also won nine of the last ten meetings with the Pelicans.
The 9-9 Hawks have only added to their win tally once in the last five games and travel to San Antonio knowing they haven’t bettered the Spurs there since 1997, some 15 games ago. They’ve lost those matches by an average of 17.5 points and arrive at the AT&T Centre in a 41.8 per cent shooting funk over the last five games.
The Rockets shouldn’t have too much trouble recording their sixth straight win here as they travel to Utah to face a Jazz outfit that’s only managed to twinkle twice in 13 attempts against fellow Western Conference foes.
The selection that fattens this accumulator up has the home side in a battle of two of the NBA’s form sides prevailing.
Portland have only lost once in the last 13, while Indiana have lost just once all season. Neither side has an advantage in terms of rest, having both played the previous day, so the Blazers’ four straight home wins over Indiana tips the scales.
