Phoenix Suns vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

I never want to lay double-digit chalk in the NBA, especially on the road, but the Portland Trail Blazers are one of the bigger jokes in the league. The Portland Trail Blazers are losing games left and right, and they're not coming close to covering these massive spreads. These losses are ugly, and the Trail Blazers have failed to cover 6 of their last 7 games. The Phoenix Suns are as healthy as they've been in quite some time, and there's no excuse for them not to win this game comfortably. I'll lay the chalk with the road team.
