Portland has lost five in a row (2-3 against the spread) and seven out of eight, including two losses to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday and Sunday.

Trail Blazer at Pacers: Odds, Lines, Predictions and Tips
Trail Blazer 124, Pacers 117
Money line (ML)
CONSIST because I lean slightly towards Portland but wouldn’t put it down with Trail Blazers (-190).
Additionally, the Blazers should be motivated to take revenge for their embarrassing loss to the Pacers earlier this season, and Indiana is without its only All-Star.

Against the Spread (ATS)
Light “LEAN” to the TRAIL BLAZERS -4.5 (-110) for a quarter of a unit as I don’t put any stocks in the Pacers three-game winning streak.
Indiana’s last three wins have been against “tanking” teams like Orlando Magic, Detroit Pistons and Oklahoma City Thunder.
More importantly, the Pacers have the second worst coverage rate at home (8-20 ATS in home games) and only 2-7 ATS with a spread differential of minus 5.2 points as a home dog.
Over / Under (O / U)
TAKE OVER 234.5 (-115) for 1 unit and this is my best choice in Trail Blazers-Pacers.
Ultimately, Portland will figure out how to win this game and do better at the end of half, but Indiana should score a lot.
According to CleaningTheGlass.com, the Pacers attempt the second highest shot volume on the edge and the Blazers are 23rd in defensive field goalscoring for attempts on the edge.
This was a big part of Indiana’s epic win over Portland earlier this season when the Pacers outperformed the color 62-28 blazers.
In addition, Indiana scores the second highest number of fast break points per game and the Portland Defense gives up the fourth highest number of fast break points per game.
