Blazers remain red-hot, visit Celtics
Despite being red-hot the Trail Blazers find themselves as an underdog tonight in Boston against the Celtics at 7:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Portland is a 4.5-point road underdog versus Boston while the over/under currently sits at 216.5 points for tonight's game. The Blazers did open as 5.5-point underdogs before the line dropped a full point, while the total opened at 219 before dropping nearly a full three points.
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.
