NBA Betting Trends


The Blazers are 20-8 against the spread in their last 28 against Eastern Conference opponents and 18-5 ATS in their last 23 games when playing on 1 day of rest.


The Raptors are 1-5 against the spread in their last five home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Friday games.


The Blazers own a 128-122 win over Toronto already this season. People seem to be sleeping on the Blazers, but they have quietly moved up to a tie for third in the West, only 4.5 games in back of first in the conference. The Blazers have the scoring to compete with anyone and tonight they face a Toronto team that has had trouble pulling away from most opponents. I am going to ride the Blazers on their hot streak.

NBA Prediction: Portland Trail Blazers +5
