Portland Trail Blazers (30-37) at Boston Celtics (43-22)
The Portland Trail Blazers are off a hard fought comeback victory against the Memphis Grizzlies and may find themselves in a letdown spot after that victory. Boston Im betting takes advatnage of the Blazers lack of depth on the wing and shows us their ability to compete. Also Im expecting a huge comeback from , Tatum who shot just 2-of-18 from the floor, including 0-for-4 on 3-pointers in the Celtics opener vs the Bucks. BOSTON is 9-1 ATS in road games after 1 or more consecutive losses this season.
The Celtics are 26-1 ATS /27-0 SU L/27 as a favorite with rest off a game as a dog after being outscored in the paint by double digits.
NBA Teams like the Blazers are 0-11 ATS/SU L/11 as a dog with rest off a win as a favorite after an overtime win in which they trailed by double digits.
PORTLAND is 5-15 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 9.5 points this season.
BOSTON is 7-0 ATS in road games when playing 5 or less games in 14 days this season.
