Philadelphia are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Philadelphia are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games when playing on the road against Portland.

Portland are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Portland's last 7 games against Philadelphia.

 

Prediction

The Trail Blazers have been up and down this season and have won only 3 of their last 10 games but they return home where they were hot in their last 2 games against the Mavs. The 76ers have been on fire offensively scoring over 120 points per game in their last 10 games but they're also allowing a lot of points. They have also struggled on the road against the Blazers losing 8 of the last 9 games in Portland. The oddsmakers are scared of the Blazers on this one that's why the line is so short so I gotta go with Lillard and company to take care of business at home.  

PICK: Blazers +2.5 (-110)
