Utah vs. Portland
Wednesday 12/23 10:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Portland -1 (-107) (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: LOSS
Portland is always a tough place to play and Utah is on a 2-7 ATS run here. Portland is healthy after dealing with a ton of injuries last season. They enter the new season with a great backcourt in Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, along with excellent overall depth and versatility, while adding Robert Covington and Derrick Jones, Jr. to shore up the defense. The Blazers are 55-38 ATS at home when the line is +3 to -3 and this is a great situational opener for the healthy and talented home team. Play Portland.
