Against the Spread Pick

The Portland Trail Blazers are a decent 3-3 in their last six games and they don’t really have a bad loss since falling to New York on New Year’s Eve. Losing to the Indiana Pacers would constitute a pretty bad loss, only because Indiana may be struggling to field even close to a full team on Sunday. Victor Oladipo still hasn’t returned from his 2018-19 quad injury, Malcolm Brogdon (concussion) is out, and a couple of bench players are questionable. For Portland, Damian Lillard has been absolutely on fire–leading the team in scoring on eight consecutive occasions. He has scored 34,34, 61, and 47 points over the past four contests. Indiana is 0-4 ATS in its last four trips to Portland. The Trail Blazers are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings between the two teams. PORTLAND is probably the way to go.

Over Under Pick

Thanks mostly to Lillard, Portland has scored 129 and 125 points in its past two outings. Seven different Indiana players are averaging in double-figures, so this team can still score even when dealing with injuries. The over is 11-5 in the Pacers’ last 16 overall and 7-3 in their last 10 on the road. It is also 4-0 in the Trail Blazers’ last four overall, 34-16-1 in their last 51 at home, and 4-1 in their last five playing on two days of rest. Lean toward the OVER.
