Phoenix at Portland
Thursday 12/06 10:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Phoenix +13.5 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: LOSS
Phoenix is getting huge points again even though Portland has been playing almost as bad, losing six of its last seven games and the Trail Blazers are 0-8 ATS their last eight games. Asking the Trail Blazers to cover a big number when they haven't gotten the money since Nov. 18 is a stretch, and the Suns are 4-1 ATS over their last five meetings at Portland. Starting guard CJ McCollum is questionable with a sprained ankle for the Blazers and they are shooting only 45.7 percent as a team overall. Portland lost at Dallas 111-102 on Tuesday as a two-point underdog, but it was down by double digits most of the game. Damian Lillard's 25 second-half points weren't enough to get the Blazers over the top in the defeat. Portland is 0-6 ATS when playing with one day of rest and 0-7 ATS its last seven games versus Pacific Division teams. Grab the big points with the Suns.
