Houston Rockets vs Portland Trail Blazers 3/25/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Houston Rockets will meet with the Portland Trail Blazers in NBA action in Moda Center at the Rose Quarter, on Friday, March 25, 2022, at 10:00 PM ET.

 

Despite how difficult this season was, Houston is currently in the midst of their toughest stretch of matches. They went 3-19 in their last 22 matches, bringing their season winning % below .250.

 

The Rockets did triumph at home against Washington on Monday, stopping a five-game winless skid with a 115-97 triumph, but their winning streak was short-lived when they were blown out by Dallas 110-91 on Wednesday.

 

Houston’s biggest problem is their defense, which ranks lowest in the NBA in net defensive rating, according to DunksandThrees.

 

They surrender 118.1 points a game, which is the lowest in the league, and they also rank worst in opposing field goal shooting, with opponents hitting 48.3 percent of their field goals.

 

Their defensive shortcomings forced them to underperform the oddsmakers’ predictions, as they are only 29-43-1 ATS on the season, with a 15-21-1 ATS record on the road. The offense did not fare much better, ranking 27th in modified offensive rating with 108.7 points per game.

 

They made 45.4 percent of their field goals, 34.6 percent of their three-point attempts, and a league-worst 71 percent of their free-throw attempts. Christian Wood, who stands at 6’9″ and averages 18.1 points per game while also leading the team in rebounds and blocks, is their most dangerous offensive threat.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Houston’s last 5 matches.
  • Houston is 1-7 SU in their last 8 matches against Portland.
  • The Rockets are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches on the road against Portland.

Houston Rockets vs Portland Trail Blazers Predictions 3/25/2022

 

The Blazers‘ playoff odds don’t appear to be bright, but there is still reason to be optimistic. They are now three matches behind New Orleans and three and a half games behind the Lakers for the last playoff place. The Blazers were blown out 133-96 by San Antonio in a critical game on Wednesday.

 

They needed the win to avoid falling further behind San Antonio in the rankings, as they’ll need to catch either LA or New Orleans as well as jump the Spurs to make the playoffs.

 

Portland has the opportunity to generate some momentum because of their advantageous schedule, which includes back-to-back home matches against the Rockets and only two of their remaining ten matches against teams with winning histories.

 

  • Portland is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 9 of Portland’s last 13 matches against Houston.
  • The Trail Blazers are 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches at home against Houston.

Houston Rockets vs Portland Trail Blazers. The NBA pick for this game is the Portland Trail Blazers. It’s unusual to see Houston as an underdog, let alone on the road. They are typically deserving of the favorite tag because they are the only squad in the NBA that is yet to win their 20th game.

 

Coming up against a Rockets offense that rates in the bottom 10 in both field goal and three-point shooting, the Blazers’ own below-average defensive abilities will be less of a disadvantage than normal. The Portland Trail Blazers will win to a predicted score of 122-117.
