Boston has covered in six of its last seven home games but there's no reason to fade Portland now, especially when the Blazers are getting points. They're 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games, are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last six road games and they've covered in six of their last eight games coming off a win.

Damian Lillard also remains one of the hottest players in basketball. He's coming off a 30-point, four-rebound, six-assist performance against the Knicks on Sunday to lead Portland to its third consecutive victory. Our Power Rating Line indicates that Boston should be a 1-point favorite, so taking a red-hot Portland team as an underdog screams value.
