Bet Tonight's Mavericks vs. Blazers Game

While it doesn't seem prudent to lay six points on a team that has lost three of its last four games and is coming off a 132-120 overtime loss to the same opponent that it plays tonight, the Blazers have actually been great to bettors following a double-digit loss. They're a perfect 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games coming off a loss of more than 10 points. They're also 4-0 ATS in their last four games after allowing more than 125 points in their previous contest.

Despite their struggles, Portland is 5-2 at the betting window in its last seven home games and has covered in nine of its lat 10 games playing on two days of rest. Damian Lillard is determined not to allow the Blazers to miss the playoffs and he should come out firing on all cylinders tonight.
