Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

It’s a busy night on a Saturday in the NBA with 11 games on the slate and I’ve prepared a same-game parlay for the early matchup between the New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers.

Don’t forget to check our predictions on the side and total for the rest of Saturday’s 11-game slate, including the LA Lakers vs Golden State Warriors clash on ABC.

Now let’s jump into our picks for the Knicks vs Blazers game!

Portland Trail Blazers ML (+180)

Anfernee Simons to score 25+ points (+200)

Evan Fournier over 3.5 made threes (+100)

Parlay odds: +1818

Portland Trail Blazers ML (+180)

Both teams are coming off surprise wins – the Knicks beat the Warriors on the road, while the Blazers took care of the Lakers at home despite being 7.5 point underdogs. After trading away CJ McCollum and Norman Powell, the players who remained in Portland are playing with a chip on their shoulder, especially with their top star Damian Lillard still out with an injury. In head-to-head meetings, the Blazers have beaten the Knicks in 5 straight games at the Moda Center. Against Atlantic Division teams Portland is 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games as well. Combine that with the fact that New York will be playing without RJ Barrett and the visitors having 1 win over the last 5 games, and the Blazers have a really good chance to get another home win.

Anfernee Simons to score 25+ points (+200)

Simons has taken over the reins as the leading scorer for Portland with McCollum and Powell gone and Lillard not playing. He is coming off a 29-point effort in the win over the Lakers, while prior to that he had 4 straight games of 19 points. Over his last 10 games, he has averaged 20.1 points on almost 43% shooting from the field and 37% from 3-point land. He is way more efficient in home games compared to road games too.

With Barrett not playing, Simons will match-up with Evan Fournier for most of the game and the Frenchman isn’t really known for his defense. With the Knicks giving up 120 or more points in 3 of their last 5 games, we could be in for another high scoring matchup tonight and if that is the case, Simons is likely to lead the Blazers in scoring.

Evan Fournier over 3.5 made threes (+100)

Barrett going down with an injury opens up the door for Fournier. This was exactly the case in the win over Golden State as the Frenchman took 13 threes and made 5 of them. It was his 3rd straight game of 4 or more threes made and the 6th time in the last 7 games he has surpassed 3.5 made threes. In February, he is making 4.8 of them per game on 10.6 attempts while shooting 45.3%. The Blazers rank 29th in the NBA when it comes to opponent 3-point percentage, allowing 37.4% per game. Over their last 3 that number has ballooned to 47.2%, which is great news for Fournier. Expect him to put up at least 10 shots tonight and he only has to make 4 for our bet to land, which seems very doable.
