Cappers Analysis:

Mike Lundin: 6-2 RUN - BLAZERS VS MAVS NBA BOOKIE BREAKER TOP PLAY

The Portland Trail Blazers will be playing their third game in four nights. As they're battling for one of the two play-in game spots they have no other option than to go all-in every night though, and I think they'll have enough gas left in the tank to beat Dallas.

The Mavs are coming off a 136-132 OT win over Milwaukee, but they have dropped three of five in the Orlando bubble and while Dallas has a chance of the No. 5 seed in the West, in reality, it wouldn't change much.

At this point in the season motivation means almost everything, and that gives Portland the edge in this contest.

Dan Kaiser: THE PROFESSOR’S NBA SUPER BLOWOUT 10-0 RUN

The Portland Trailblazers have won four of their last six games in the BUBBLE. They are coming off a 124-121 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Damian Lillard went off on the 76'ers with 51 points and seven assists. Carmelo Anthony added 20 points, and CJ McCollum chipped in 16 points. The Dallas Mavericks have won three of their last four games and two in a row. This will be the second game of a back-to-back after a 22-114 win over the Utah Jazz. Tim Hardaway Jr. had 27 points and Seth Curry added 22 points in the win. They battled back from a 22 point deficit and outscored 34-14 in the fourth to secure the win.

Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis, and Dorian Finney-Smith were all rested last night. The Trailblazers are still fighting for a playoff spot and can't afford to lose this one.

Paul Bovi: NBA Money Play of the Day

The Blazers hurt us vs the Clips but got us whole in their 3 point win over the 76ers, a game we had at -2 and the Money Line. The desperate Portland Trailblazers who seem to have 9 lives take on the lame duck Mavs who have nothing to play for since the most games the Jazz can lose at this point is 29 versus Dallas' 30.

Jazz Ray: **NBA NIGHT GAME! PORTLAND vs DALLAS

Portland is rested and need a win here versus Dallas where they might be resting player. Portland is on fire right now and the race is tight in the western conference.  Look for them to come out with a vengeance and take this one with ease!

 

Best of luck!

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
