Brooklyn Nets vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The Brooklyn Nets are the better team and should be favored, but they've also piled up the losses over the last month and went from cash cows to just 19-18-2 ATS on the season. I'm not excited today points with the Nets, especially on the road. The Portland Trail Blazers aren't covering numbers either, and they have a ton of injuries, but they're at home here, and they did beat the Nets on the road in overtime a little over a week ago. If betting this game, give me Portland and the points.
