The Cleveland Cavaliers are short favorites as they travel to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers. Portland is hoping to snap a four-game losing streak.
Last time these two teams met up, it was the Cavs pulling off a 114-96 victory led by Donovan Mitchell's 34-point performance as all five starters scored in double-digits. The Trail Blazers needed more scoring as they fell shy of 100 points, and they once again may be without leading scorer Damian Lillard for this matchup.
With this in mind, find a same game parlay for Cavaliers vs. Trail Blazers below.
Cavaliers vs. Trail Blazers Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick
The Parlay: (+411)
- Cleveland Cavaliers First-Half Moneyline (-140)
- Donovan Mitchell 5+ Made 3-Point Shots (+230)
Cleveland Cavaliers First-Half Moneyline (-140)
When it comes to first-half scoring, both teams rank near the middle of the pack. The Trail Blazers have put up an average of 58.3 points on their home court, and the Cavaliers have scored an average of 57.3 first-half points on the road.
The two head-to-head meetings have seen 104 and 105 first-half points per game scored. Lillard missed both of the previous matchups between these teams this season and is questionable to play tonight with a left ankle sprain.
These teams' first-half offenses have been led by their star guards. Lillard ranks eighth in the Association in first-half points per game by averaging 14.1 and is first in first-half minutes per game at 18.4. For the Cavs, Donovan Mitchell has gotten out to quick starts as well by averaging 14 first-half points per game and is coming off a 25-point performance against the Jazz.
Donovan Mitchell 5+ Made 3-Point Shots (+230)
Speaking of Mitchell, he's been lighting it up from beyond the arc as of late and has done so on high volume. He has attempted at least nine 3-point attempts in seven of the last 10 games, including 15, 12 and 18 attempts over three of the last four contests.
He's in a good spot to build off that success against the Blazers, who allow opponents to shoot just shy of 36 percent from deep.
With how well Mitchell has been shooting, look into boosting the parlay's odds by taking him to connect on five made 3s at a juicy price of +230.
