The Trail Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Suns are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games and 27-10 ATS in their last 37 games overall. The over is 11-5 in Trail Blazers last 16 overall. The over is 6-1 in Suns last 7 overall. The Trail Blazers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Portland Trail Blazers are relying more and more on Lillard to lead the way with all of their injuries and it gets tougher as the competition increases. The Phoenix Suns have not only been money against the spread dating back to the NBA bubble, but they're also winning their last five games by an average of 14.6 points while shooting 54 percent from the field. With their injuries, the Trail Blazers don't have the offensive horses to survive this contest. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Suns.
