The Portland Trail Blazers need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 114.7 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 114.9 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Damian Lillard is averaging 28.7 points and 7.6 assists while CJ McCollum is averaging 23.5 points and 3.8 rebounds.

The Celtics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. The under is 8-1 in Celtics last 9 overall. The under is 5-1 in Trail Blazers last 6 overall. The Celtics are 14-5 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Portland. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Portland.
The Boston Celtics are laying good, consistent basketball, but I still have questions of how long this continues, as I just don't think this is a good basketball team capable of long term success. The Portland Trail Blazers are going through a bit of a rough patch, but they do play well at home and they win by an average of 5.7 points in the favorite role. On paper the Celtics looks like a good bet, but I'm going to lean Trail Blazers in this near pick em contest.
