Will the Portland Trail Blazers be able to handle being a road favorite when it takes on the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Blazers are favored tonight, as they are getting odds of -2 points against the 76ers. The over/under total for the game is listed at 209.5 points. Portland has won three of the last four against Philly, but the 76ers are 4-1 against the spread in the last five games of this series.

Portland is on a three-game losing streak right now to drop to 18-26 on the season. They are also 18-26 against the spread this season after failing to cover in their last three games. The Blazers are averaging 107.4 points per game on offense this season while allowing 110.6 points per contest. On the road, Portland is allowing 112.8 points per game. Damian Lillard is leading Portland with 26.1 points and 6 assists per game while C.J. McCollum is adding 23.4 points per contest.

Bet on Blazers vs. 76ers

Philly is actually somewhat hot, as the 76ers have won five of their last six games to move to 14-26 on the season. The 76ers also have covered the spread in 8 of their last 9 games to move to 23-17 against the spread on the year. Philly is giving up 104.9 points per game on defense while the offense is producing just 99.3 points per contest. However, in their last five, Philly is giving up just 98.4 points per contest. Joel Embiid is leading the team with 19.9 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game. Jahlil Okafor is questionable for this game with an ankle injury. He is averaging 11.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.

The 76ers are playing well right now and I think they can matchup well with the 76ers in the frontcourt. The key will be for Philly to not allow Lillard to dominate the game. Given the Blazers struggles, I like the 76ers as a home underdog. They have been playing above expectations for a few weeks and seem to finally be hitting a positive stride.
