The Portland Trail Blazers will continue their trip to the East Coast in Boston tonight. Portland is still struggling without Damian Lillard and clings to the West 10th seed. Boston has shown signs of life, with a score of 6-4 in the last 10 games. Can the Celtics continue their upward trend?
Here are the odds for match via WynnBET.
Unusually, these teams have been virtually identical in the last 10 games. Their attack ratings are 0.1 points apart. Defensively, that’s the difference. Boston is third in the league (105.7), while the Blazers are 24th (115.9). Portland has been a lousy defensive team all year, and the Celtics will capitalize on that tonight.
The Blazers are leading 5-5 in the last 10 games, but are about to lose to the Miami Heat. The Blazers are one of those teams that lacks consistency when it comes to win percentage. However, their poor defense makes me nervous going out tonight. I’ll bring Boston.
Pick: Celtics -8 (-110)
