Portland - 3

Hot home court for the upstart Trail Blazers on TNT tonight, and they have been money whenever they get a TNT game at home, going 5-0 SU and ATS the last 5 times! They host the Houston Rockets in this one, and this will be the marquee game of the day in Pro Hoops.

This should be a shootout tonight as the Blazers in their last 5 games are averaging 111 ppg and the Rockets pumping in 101 ppg in the same time frame.An interesting dynamic that goes against Portland here, is they have had a tough time with Houston in the Rose Garden, as Houston is 5-0-1 ATS the last 6 meetings in here and the over has cashed out the last 4 in a row between these two.

Houston's weakness is defense, however their last two opponents were held to 85 ppg, but Portland at home is a different animal and at days end I think the Trail Blazers, who are 16-6 ATS their last 22 games, rise to the occasion in a building where they have won 10 out of 12 games straight up, and get the job done tonight.  Bear in mind one of those home losses was back on November 5th when Houston came in here and beat Portland 116 - 101 so revenge is a motivating factor on Portland side as well.
