The Portland Trail Blazers and the Cleveland Cavaliers duke it out at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Wednesday night.

The Portland Trail Blazers have been in a rut as they’ve lost four of their last five games and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after getting stopped by the Bucks in a 119-111 road loss on Monday. Anfernee Simons led the team with 29 points and five assists, Jerami Grant added 18 points while Josh Hart chipped in with 17 points and nine rebounds. As a team, the Trail Blazers shot 47 percent from the field and eight of 29 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Bucks until the third quarter where they got outscored by 30-18 to trail by as many as 17 points.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers will be aiming for a fourth straight victory after blowing past the Hawks in a 114-102 win on Monday. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 29 points and nine assists, Darius Garland added 26 points with nine assists while Cedi Osman provided the spark off the bench with 23 points on eight of 10 shooting. As a team, the Cavaliers shot a sizzling 60 percent from the field and 10 of 19 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 38 points in the first quarter to take the early lead, before holding the Hawks to just 20 points in the fourth quarter to pull away and win comfortably in the end.

Looking at the betting trends, the Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record, 5-0 ATS in their last five road games and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Cavaliers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record, 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games overall.

Head to head, the over is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings in Cleveland.

The Trail Blazers are going to be shorthanded again as Damian Lillard and Keon Johnson are both out, while Josh Hart is listed as day to day. The Cavaliers have their own injuries as they will be without Caris LeVert while Kevin love is listed as day to day. The Cavaliers are clearly the team in better form at the moment as the loss of Lillard has been too much for the Trail Blazers to overcome and I think that trend continues here as the Cavaliers should be good enough to take advantage.
