The Trail Blazers are a banged up, losing team that's clearly waiting for the offseason to arrive. The Trail Blazers are 32-36-1 ATS on the season. The Los Angeles Clippers are fighting for playoff seeding, and these games are cake in terms of moving up in the standings. The Clippers have also won 9 of the last 10 games against the Trail Blazers while covering 7 of those games. The line is thick, but give me the Clippers in another beat down over Portland.
