Portland hasn't been able to sustain the momentum off wins of late. The team beat the 76ers 114-108 in overtime but then blew a sizable halftime lead to the Wizards in the following game to lost 125-124 in OT, then beat the Suns 110-101 before losing last night in New Orleans, 100-77. The Trail Blazers are still 6-4 over their last 10 games, although they're just 5-5 at the betting window during that stretch.
San Antonio fell 102-92 in Oklahoma City last week but has since beaten the Warriors and Hawks, respectively, in their last two games. Entering play tonight, the Spurs have won nine of their last 10 games but are just 4-6 at the betting window during that span.
OUR PREDICTION: The Trail Blazers have failed to cover the spread in four of their last five games versus the Spurs and are just 2-7 against the number in their last nine trips to San Antonio. The favorite is also 6-1 at the betting window in the last seven meetings between these two teams and the Spurs have covered in eight of their last 11 games versus Northwest opponents. The Trail Blazers, meanwhile, are just 4-9 at the betting window in their last 13 road games.
