Against the Spread Pick

On Tuesday, the entire Lakers vs. Clippers game was off. With Wednesday’s games, only the lines are off. Multiple players are listed on injury reports (most of them probable) for personal reasons following Kobe Bryan’t death on Sunday. In the case of the Portland Trail Blazers and Houston Rockets contests, the line was still absent due to James Harden’s status (questionable with a thigh issue). Clint Capela (heel) is also questionable. The Trail Blazers got 50 points from Damian Lillard during a 139-129 defeat of Indiana on Sunday. The Rockets are 2-6 ATS in their last eight on the road and 2-5 ATS in their last seven against opponents with losing records. Portland is 4-1 ATS in its last five on Wednesdays. Continue to monitor Houston’s health, but the TRAIL BLAZERS are intriguing here.

Over Under Pick

Lillard is absolutely unconscious at the moment. He has scored at least 47 points in three straight outings, including 61 in last Monday’s success against Golden State. Lillard has shot worse than 40 percent only once in a game since Jan. 1. The over is 5-2 in the Rockets’ last seven on the road. It is also 5-0 in the Trail Blazers’ last five overall and 35-16-1 in their last 52 at home. Additionally, the over is 11-4 in Houston’s last 15 trips to Portland. The OVER is probably the play.
