There are 8 NBA games scheduled for tonight, but my favourite bookmaker offers odds only for 6 games. Stop trying to understand how things work in Italy and let’s think about betting: I choose Atlanta @ Portland for my first bet of the week.

PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS vs ATLANTA HAWKS
The Trail Blazers (2-4) are the worst team in the Northwest Division with a bad 1-2 home record and 3 consecutive games lost. Their problem is simple to understand: they are one of the worse defensive teams in the league. Usually teams playing against Portland score more than 100 points!
The Hawks (2-3) play the second game of a four-game West Coast road trip that began Sunday with 89-76 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
My bookmaker sees Portland as favourite tonight, I have a different opinion. I back Atlanta not because the Hawks are strong, but because the Trail Blazers are weak! Anyway, stake 4/100 is enough for this game.
Atlanta @ 2.08
Portland – Atlanta 87 – 95

Nothing better that drinking an Italian coffee while reading the match report published by The New York Times.
