The Trail Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 23-10 ATS in their last 33 Thursday games. The 76ers are 21-8 ATS in their last 29 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Trail Blazers last 7 overall. The over is 10-4 in 76ers last 14 overall. The Trail Blazers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia and 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the hotter teams in the league and are going to get more and more respect from oddsmakers if this run continues. The Portland Trail Blazers are a banged up basketball team that's losing their last five games by an average of 4.4 points. However, the Trail Blazers have been decent on the road this season, which includes covers in four of their last five tries. This is a lot of points to just throw a Trail Blazers team that still has some decent players who can get hot offensively. I'll grab the free buckets.
