NBA Playoffs turn to game six action as the Rockets try to eliminate the Trailblazers from the NBA betting post season. NBA Playoffs handicappers have seen Portland cover the NBA betting spread in three out of fives games but trail the series three games to two.
The Rockets had a chance to eliminate the Blazers from the NBA Playoffs in game five at Portland but the Blazers rose to the occasion and stayed alive with an 88-77 NBA betting win as 5.5-point home chalks. Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge each had 25 points to lead the Blazers.
Despite this being a NBA Playoffs series that features two of the better defensive clubs in the league, the teams have combined to go under the total in three out of five games. The visitor has covered the last four consecutive games of this NBA Playoffs series.
So far in the NBA Playoffs Roy has been sensational for Portland as he has averaged 27.6-points per game. Aldridge is second on the Blazers with an average of 18.2-points per game and leads the Blazers in rebounds with an average of 8.0-per game.
The Rockets have been led by Yao Ming who has averaged 19.7-points per game so far in the NBA Playoffs. He is also averaging a team best 9.9-rebounds per game. Ron Artest is playing his best basketball of the season in the NBA Playoffs as he is averaging 17.1-points per game. Tracy McGrady has also contributed with an average of 15.6 points per game.
Houston is one of the colder teams against the board in the NBA Playoffs as they have gotten the cash in just two out of their last six games. Five out of their last seven games have gone under the total. Portland, on the other hand, has been one of the hottest teams on the board since mid-March with 13 payoffs in their last 16 games.
Although there has not been much of a home court advantage in this series Houston should bring their best effort as they want to avoid a trip back to Portland for a game seven. The Blazers, on the other hand, again must fight for their lives!
