The Trail Blazers have been a remarkably consistent winning franchise in the NBA, constantly finding themselves in the playoffs at a remarkable rate. Deep playoff success hasn't always followed, but the fact that this team can almost always be in the running for a top-eight spot in the West each year helps bettors better handicap Portland games. A big part of that consistency is a strong home court advantage this team holds on a yearly basis.
That's a big reason why you will see some Portland Trail Blazers lines at home a bit puzzling at first glance because the majority of casual NBA fans/bettors can forget to take that into account.

Portland Trail Blazers Record
The Trail Blazers franchise made the playoffs a remarkable 21 straight years from the 1982-83 season up until the 2003-04 season. That's a mark of consistency that's tough to match, and although there were no NBA championships for the Blazers in that span (they did lose in the Finals twice), that culture of winning within the organization was firmly established.
There were a few lean years after that run, but at the end of the 15-16 campaign, the Blazers have found themselves in the postseason in six of eight years. The most recent year is special because Portland lost four of five starters via free agency after the 14-15 season and still found a way to finish 5th in the West with a young team many experts predicted would be at the bottom of the standings. That alone is a great sign for this franchise moving forward as the young core gained valuable experience in the 15-16 season.
That core is led by the backcourt of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum and both of those guys can fill up the bucket in a hurry. It's these two guys that future Trail Blazers success will be centred around, and they've both got their prime still well ahead of them. Those two helped Portland finish with a 44-38 ATS mark in 15-16 (5th best), thanks to posting a 28-13 straight up record at home.
Given how well the 15-16 season went for Portland, the future for this organization is very bright and bettors should count on them being a Western Conference playoff team (at worst) for many years to come.
