The Portland Trail Blazers are usually a tough out at home, but they've been in rough shape overall these last couple of weeks. While Lillard is playing great ball, I need to see the Blazers get it together before I can back them against quality teams. The Philadelphia 76ers are far and away more consistent, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 4.2 points. I'll lay the bucket.
