Portland Trail Blazers vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

We know the Portland Trail Blazers aren't a good basketball team, but let's not act like the Clippers are the model of consistency. And if anything, the Trail Blazers have gotten better recently with the return of Anfernee Simons, and he balled out in a loss to the Mavericks. The Los Angeles Clippers have bizarre losses on their resume, the offense comes and goes, and they're just 9-12 ATS on the season. I'm not laying double-digit chalk with the Clippers regardless of whom they play. It's Portland and the points or pass for me.
