The Trail Blazers are 17-7 ATS in their last 24 Wednesday games. The Kings are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 16-7 in Trail Blazers last 23 road games. The over is 4-1 in Kings last 5 overall. The Trail Blazers are 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Portland Trail Blazers are finally playing decent basketball and starting to come into their own and there's serious potential for this squad once they figure it out. The Sacramento Kings continue to have issues defensively and aren't a team I believe in, especially against better competition. Until proven otherwise, the Kings are still the Kings. The Portland Trail Blazers are easily the better team here, and they just beat the Kings a couple days ago by 26 points. I'll lay the reasonable number with Portland on the road.
