Portland Trail Blazers vs New York Knicks prediction

Massive line, and I'm not excited to get behind the Knicks here. However, the Portland Trail Blazers continue to lose games in poor fashion, and they're 16-19 ATS despite being big underdogs every night. The New York Knicks are 19-15-2 ATS on the season, and they've covered each of their last 4 games. The Knicks defense during this winning stretch has been impressive. It's the Knicks or pass for me.
