PORTLAND (-3.5) over Utah
9:05 p.m. ET
After another easy winner yesterday on Eastern Michigan our FREE PICKS are now on a 7-2 run!
While most every team in the NBA is rested and healthy right now because of a week-long All Star break, the Jazz, because of a re-scheduled game due to a winter storm in January, are playing their third game in four nights tonight, including two road games and one all the way on the East Coast vs. Washington. The Trailblazers, meanwhile, are playing just their second game in 10 days, and are fresh off a confidence-building blowout win at home over Golden State, and that’s even better news since the team is 24-10 ATS the game after winning as an underdog the last three years. Portland has also dominated this series at home, winning 31 of the last 45 meetings on this floor, and it gets another easy win tonight against a tired Jazz team.February 21, 2016 at 9:51 am #31919

10* Western Conf. NBA GAME OF YEAR! (Won Eastern on 12/28) Sunday
Conference GAME OF THE YEAR
at 9:00 ET.
These teams both treated me well in their last game. Playing their second game in as many nights, I backed the Jazz against Boston, citing that the back-to-back situation wasn’t likely to pose as much of a problem for the Jazz as the long layoff would for the Celtics. Though the line was about a pick’em, Utah would win by 15 points. My play on Portland was perhaps even easier. Despite being prohibitive underdogs, the Trail Blazers won by 32 points. I don’t normally like to toot my own horn but will admit that I did mention that the Blazers were playing so well right now that I thought they had a real shot at upsetting the Warriors, something not many teams do and something I wouldn’t normally say.
Anyway, enough reminiscing. Among the reasons why I backed the Jazz and the Blazers in their last game is that they are both much better home teams and both were playing at home. The Blazers are up to 17-11 in games at Portland. While they’re 18-10 in games at Utah, the Jazz are only 9-17 on the road. You may have seen that Lillard went off for 51 points on Friday. It was more than that though as he also made several outstanding defensive plays, ones which were important at the time. He’d finish with six steals (and 7 assists) without turning the ball over. Speaking of Lillard, the Blazers are 0-1 against the Jazz this season without him in the lineup but 2-0 against them when he plays. Homecourt advantage means more to some teams than it does to others.
These are two teams that it means a great deal to. It’ll mean a lot again tonight, as the Blazers win their eighth straight home game against Western Conference opposition.
Good Luck…LarryFebruary 21, 2016 at 1:03 pm #31962
