Portland Trail Blazers -2.5
The Key: The Blazers are playing some quality basketball. They have won four of their last six and are coming off a huge 136-106 win over the Spurs. Their recent play has led to a perfect 7-0 ATS run. The Hornets, on the other hand, are struggling. They have lost eight of their last 10 both SU and ATS and will face the difficult task of playing without a day of rest. You might think Portland's big win over San Antonio places it in a letdown situation. However, the Blazers were completely embarrassed 99-63 in New Orleans last month. Losses that bad aren't forgotten, and I expect Portland to be very motivated here as a result. The Hornets are a soft 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games when playing without a day of rest. They are also unreliable 8-18 ATS the last two seasons in games when the line is +3 to -3. New Orleans is only 11-20 on its home floor, and it is 4-12 ATS this season in home games after playing a road game. They have lost by an average score of 94.1 to 89.5 in this spot. Lay the points.
