The Trail Blazers are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 Monday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Clippers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The over is 4-0 in Trail Blazers last 4 overall. The under is 10-4-1 in Clippers last 15 Monday games. The Trail Blazers are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Portland Trail Blazers have the ability to steal this game on the road, but you just never know which team is going to show up night to night. The Los Angeles Clippers haven't had the easiest schedule through two games, but their defensive effort has been concerning, as they're 30th in field goal percentage and three point percentage allowed. The Trail Blazers have covered eight of their last 11 road games. Could go either way with this small line, but I slightly lean toward the Trail Blazers and the free bucket.
