The Portland Trail Blazers I guess are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but they're not playing good ball right now, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 7.4 points. The Dallas Mavericks are banged up, and they've had issues as well, especially as underdogs, where they lose by an average of 10.6 points. Still, getting the Mavs as an underdog against a Trail Blazers that's free-falling feels like a steal.
