GOLDEN STATE (-9) over Portland
10:05 p.m. ET
We very rarely play big road favorites on the road in any sport, but tonight the situation warrants laying the big number. Simply put, the Warriors are a cash machine when playing with rest, going 24-7-2 ATS in their last 33 games with two or more days off. They have also covered 5 of the last 7 in this series and are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games against teams with a losing record. On the flip side, Portland is just 3-12 ATS in its last 15 versus a team with a winning percentage above .600. The Trailblazer backcourt can’t handle Thompson and Curry and this one could get ugly. Lay it!
