The Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games. The Timberwolves are 15-35-1 ATS in their last 51 home games and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Trail Blazers last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 5-1 in Timberwolves last 6 overall. The Trail Blazers are 21-8 ATS in the last 29 meetings in Minnesota and 40-14-2 ATS in the last 56 meetings.

These teams played each other last night and the Portland Trail Blazers won by four points despite not playing a lick of defense and getting an average game from Lillard. I'd expect a tighter performance this time around from the Trail Blazers and it usually becomes easier for the better team to win when playing the lesser squad again in a short span. The Minnesota Timberwolves are god awful. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with Portland on the road.
