Portland 118, Warriors 110
Despite having a losing record this season, the BLAZERS (-278) are big home favorites on Monday night as they face a Warriors team that has been decimated with injuries. Golden State has lost 10 of their last 11 games and seven-straight games on the road. While they will be getting Draymond Green (finger) back on Monday, it’s still hard to see them upsetting Portland. Bet on the Blazers to win this game at home.
Line/Against the Spread(ATS)
As expected, the BLAZERS (-6.5, -106) are favored over the Warriors at home on Monday despite losing 10 of their last 14 games. The Blazers have struggled against the spread this season (18-26-2) but they should have no problem covering this spread as the Warriors have struggled to score points this season. Blazers guard C.J. McCollum (ankle) will miss the game, and that could make things interesting. However, I anticipate the Blazers scoring enough to keep the Warriors at bay.
The total for this Western Conference matchup is set at 220.5, which seems low given the history of these two teams. While there won’t be the same talent level we are accustomed to seeing, both teams are going to want to play with pace and that should lead to a ton of scoring. I’m taking the OVER (220.5, -121) and expecting a higher scoring contest.
