Best Trail Blazers Betting Lines 2022

The Portland Trail Blazers had a down year in 2021-22, going just 27-55 after making a trip to the playoffs a year prior. The second half of the season was particularly ugly, as Portland went just 2-21 over its final 23 games.

Of course, there are valid reasons for this. Damian Lillard appeared in just 29 contests before being shut down for the season due to injury. Longtime sharpshooter CJ McCollum was traded. Anfernee Simons and Jusuf Nurkić each missed 25+ games. It wasn’t pretty.

Now, the Blazers appear poised for a potential playoff run. Lillard, Simons, and Nurkić are all healthy once again, and offseason additions Jerami Grant and Gary Payton II look like high-end role players who could really make a difference.

Let’s take a closer look at the Trail Blazers betting odds for the 2022-23 NBA season.

Trail Blazers NBA Finals Odds

Trail Blazers Win 2023 NBA Finals (+16000)

The Trail Blazers are in an excellent position to improve this season, but winning the NBA Finals is entirely out of the question. This group is still a good way away from competing with the Celtics and Warriors for an NBA title.

Trail Blazers Western Conference Odds

Trail Blazers Win Western Conference (+6500)

This may look like a better bet on the surface, but that’s hardly the case. The (+6500) odds look enticing until we remember that the Blazers would have to go through the Warriors, Clippers, Suns, Nuggets, Grizzlies…

There are several Western Conference teams in a much better position to represent the region in the NBA Finals this year. I like this Blazers team, but they may not even reach the playoffs, let alone compete in the Western Conference Finals.

Trail Blazers Northwest Division Odds

Trail Blazers Win Northwest Division (+1000)

The Blazers are the third-best team in their division, but it’s a distant third. They’re forced to compete with the Nuggets and Timberwolves, and both of those teams are in a much better position to rack up wins during the regular season than Portland is.

Trail Blazers Make Playoffs Odds

Trail Blazers Miss the Playoffs (-192)

I’m on the fence about this pick. The Blazers could genuinely sneak into the playoffs if they exceed expectations by even a little bit.

As it stands, there are eight teams that I like to make the playoffs more than Portland. That puts them as either the No. 9 or 10 seed, where I have them meeting the Lakers in a play-in game. However, even if they get by Los Angeles, they’d have to face a much tougher team to get into the postseason for good.

It’s not impossible, but I wouldn’t call it likely, either.

Trail Blazers Win Total Bets 2022

Trail Blazers UNDER 39.5 Wins (-110)

The Western Conference will be a gauntlet this year. We’re talking about several 50-win teams and a cut-off well above .500 for those that qualify for the playoffs outright. Because of that, the Blazers may be hard-pressed to eclipse 40 wins this season.

This is essentially a coin flip, and I’m not confident enough either way to make this pick. The Under feels right, but I’d rather not place this bet.

Trail Blazers Prop Bets 2022

Trail Blazers Make the Play-In Tournament (-140)

Out of all the bets you can make on the Trail Blazers right now, this one seems like the best. All they need to do to qualify for the play-in tournament is finish in the No. 7 to 10 range in the West, which is a very fair projection for this team.

There probably isn’t a reality in which the Blazers finish as anything better than the seven, and the most likely outcome is that they end up being the No. 9 or 10. Assuming that happens, this bet will cash at relatively favorable odds.

How to Bet Trail Blazers Moneylines

Betting on Blazers moneylines is about as easy as sports betting gets. All you need to do to win a moneyline wager is correctly pick the winner of the game. If the team you chose wins the game, you’ll also win your bet.

Of course, there are other factors at play here. A team’s odds of winning will vary with each game, and you can’t get a high payout by betting on the favorite unless you’re willing to gamble a ton of money. Therefore, a healthy mix of betting on underdogs and favorites is the best approach you can take.

  • 2021-22 Trail Blazers Moneyline Record: 27-55

How to Bet Trail Blazers Spreads

Portland was the worst team against the spread last season, which indicates that they often lost games by more points than they were expected to. Fortunately, there’s really nowhere for them to go but up.

If you’re looking to get into spread betting this year, there are a few things you should know. Like moneylines, favorites and underdogs are present with spreads. The favorite is indicated by a minus symbol (Blazers -6.5), while the underdog is associated with a plus symbol (Jazz +6.5).

If the spread is set at 6.5 points and the Blazers are the favorite, then they must win the game by at least seven points to cover the spread. Otherwise, their opponent would cover. Both options are set at the same (-110) price tag, so this can be a good way to make money regardless of a team’s standing.

  • 2021-22 Trail Blazers Against the Spread Record: 30-51-1

How to Bet Trail Blazers Over/Unders

Over/Unders are different from moneylines and spread bets in the sense that they don’t deal with who wins the game or by how many points. Rather, it’s all about the combined score of the matchup.

Let’s say the projected total between the Blazers and Nuggets is 233.5 points. In this case, if you bet the Over, you’re saying that more than 233.5 points will be scored. If you side with the Under, you’re betting the opposite outcome. Both options are priced at (-110) odds.

  • 2021-22 Trail Blazers Over/Under Record: 37-44-1
