Point Spread: -3½/-108 Portland
4* NBA NO DOUBT ATS BLOWOUT: Trail Blazers -3.5
Despite their poor play of late, I think the Trail Blazers are showing some solid value as a 4-point home favorite. Portland has lost 8 of their last 11 overall, but have showed some life since they fired head coach Nate McMillan. In their first game under interim head coach Kaleb Canales they went into Chicago and beat the Bulls 100-89. They lost by 16-points at Oklahoma City in their next game, but that isn't all that surprising considering they had just traded away Marcus Camby and Gerald Wallace.
I really like Portland to come out fired up and really play their hearts out in front of their home crowd tonight. The Trail Blazers haven't played on their home floor in a little over two weeks. They are 14-7 at home this season and are 20-8-2 ATS in their last 30 games as a home favorite.
The Bucks come in red-hot, having won five straight and really looking like the trade for Monta Ellis is going to push them into the playoffs. However, I think Milwaukee will struggle to get up for this game. The Bucks have not been a good road team and on top of that they tend to struggle against the Western Conference. Milwaukee is just 3-13 ATS in their last 16 vs. NBA Northwest and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. BET THE TRAIL BLAZERS!
