It’s do or die time for the Portland Trailblazers as they host the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of their NBA odds series. Two of the mid-tier teams in the Western Conference these two teams have provided plenty of action and excitement in their NBA betting playoff series so far with the two teams trading wins on the way to 3-2 Suns advantage in the basketball betting action so far.
Phoenix could end the series tonight with a win over the Blazers in the Rose Garden and advance to the second round action of the NBA playoff betting. In game 5 in Phoenix the Suns looked to be the better team overcoming an early 14-point deficit in the Valley of the Sun and cruising to an otherwise convincing victory in the NBA odds action.
Portland will have to rally mentally after blowing such a big lead in Game 5 and has no choice but to dig out a win in this NBA playoff wagering matchup or their basketball betting season will be over.
Brandon Roy, to the surprise everyone except his doctors, came back in Game 4 in the Rose Garden and provided a much needed psychological boost for the Blazers who seemed to feed off his presence and the fans defiantly picked loved it, picking up the volume level and helping the team to an easy NBA betting win.
But if the Blazers are going to win Game 6 Roy has to do more than just make an appearance, he’s got to have an impact on the court, something he didn’t really do in either of the past two NBA playoff betting contests. Andre Miller has been stupendous throughout this NBA odds contest and must have another big night in front of the home crowd. He’s been the leading scorer in this series with several 30+point games and filled in for the absent Roy in that regard. But the Blazers need more point production and Roy has to score at least 20 in this NBA betting matchup to give the Blazers a chance.
Portland has done a great job shutting down Amare Stoudemire in the paint and this frustration is starting to show. So long none of the Suns role players have a huge night in Game 6 (ala Channing Frye in Game 6) the Blazers should be able to get the win the NBA betting action and push this series to a Game 7.
