New Orleans Pelicans (32-43) @ Portland Trailblazers (27-48)

Ahh the old revenge game narrative. CJ McCollum faces off vs his old team for the first time since the trade. CJ may be pretty thankful for the trade now that he’s in a spot to battle for the playoffs, but I still think he will show his old squad what they’re missing.

We must factor in that Ingram is back in the lineup. Oddly enough, I prefer that. The defense won’t be able to focus solely on McCollum and BI has developed into quite the passer this year and should only help to get him open looks. So far, the duo has played 11 games together. I’m those 11, CJ has averaged 25.4 points. He has gone over 22.5 in 7/11, over 25 in 4/11, and over 30 in 4/11. I really like his value up the ladder tonight so I’ll be going that route in this matchup.

I likely don’t have to tell you much about Portlands defense. They have been terrible, and have just gotten worse as the season continues. They are 28th in points allowed, 29th in 3 pointers allowed, 28th in free throws allowed, and 29th in defensive efficiency. They don’t have anyone who can slow down McCollum. While the big spread is a bit scary, the Pelicans will want to ensure they win this one. They are currently the 9 seed in the West and looking to lock in their spot in the playin tourney. I love this spot for CJ vs his old team.

Ryan's Ladder Play


CJ MCCOLLUM OVER 22.5 POINTS, 25+ POINTS & 30+ POINTS @ -105, +170 & +550

Best Odds by Far at bet365

bet365 have much better odds for Ryan's ladder play than FanDuel tonight, especially higher up the ladder:

  • o22.5 pts: -105 vs. -106
  • 25+ points: +170 vs. +130
  • 30+ points: +550 vs. +310

So if you bet $10 at bet365 for 30+ points you'd win $65 compared to just $41 at FanDuel - that's certainly big enough difference to make the switch to bet365 for tonight's ladder play.

They'll also give you $200 in free bets if you join today & bet $1 or more!
