Mar 8 NBA Action: Washington Wizards @ Portland Trail Blazers

Washington Wizards @ Portland Trail Blazers u214.5

Moda Center, Portland Oregon

March 8, 2016, 4:00PM PST

Our simulation work forecasts a total in the 208-209 range when the Blazers host the Wizards this afternoon. Accordingly, we are backing hte under.

In head-to-head play, the under has demonstrated an slight (4-3) edge since 2013, including covering in the sole meeting between these teams this year.

On the other hand though, betting trends for the current season appear to favor the over tonight. For instance, the Wizards O/U is 12-9 when Washington is featured as the road dog, while the Blazers over is 11-8 when Portland is favored at Moda Center. Additionally, the over is 8-3 after Washington enjoys two days off, while Portland's over is 21-17 when playing after one night off.

However, Washington is riding a three-game cover streak for the under, and the Wizards O/U is 4-2 in their last six contests. And Portland O/U is 3-3 of late, suggesting that this evening's matchup might go either way.

But despite the (at best) mixed indiations from betting trends, our simulation work compels us to position for a low scoring affair this evening.

Happy betting!!
