Jack's Free Pick Wednesday!

Portland vs. Golden State, 02/15/2012 22:00
Point Spread: -5/-105 Golden State

The Golden State Warriors are playing their best basketball of the season right now. The Portland Trail Blazers are in a funk, and things just got a lot worse for them as they lost their best player to injury in a 109-124 home loss to the Washington Wizards last night.

Portland is 1-4 SU & 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. LaMarcus Aldridge went out early with a sprained ankle in their loss to the Wizards. He is their leading scorer (22.6 points per game) and rebounder (8.3). There's no question he will be missed, and the Blazers are going to be lost without him.

Golden State has picked up three straight impressive victories over Denver, Houston and Phoenix, all by 6 points or more. The Warriors have had the Blazers' number in recent history. They have won four straight in this series all by 7 points or more, and they are a perfect 7-0 ATS in their last seven meetings.

The Warriors are 18-6 ATS in their last 24 meetings with Portland overall, and the home team is 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings. The Blazers are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog. Golden State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite. Bet the Warriors Wednesday.
