The Miami Heat (23-10) travel cross country to take on the Portland Trailblazers (19-15) Thursday night at 10:30ET. NBA odds are at Bovada sportsbook.
Miami has played pretty mediocre of late, losing two of their last three, to bring their record to 23-10 SU and 16-17 ATS. They have lost six of their last seven against the spread, with their only cover coming against Washington. They have only scored more than 100 in two of their last seven games, and both of them were overtime contests.
Portland has always been tough at home. They are 12-4 there this season, which makes up most of their 19-15 SU and 15-18-1 ATS mark for the year. They have won three in a row, against Orlando, Minnesota, and Memphis. They have gone 5-5 in their last 10 against the spread.
Miami is a 4 point favorite. The road hasn’t been a place of comfort for the Heat, and the Trailblazers love being at home. Take Portland +4 at www.sportsbookroom.com.
