(575) Indiana vs. Portland (576) 10:00 PM | Thu, Jan 14 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1100) - Final Score POR 87 at IND 111
-1.5 POR (-110) @ williamhill

T.M. Selection: Blazers (10* TRADE-MARK).

Indiana lost to Sacramento to open up its five-game swing, but then pulled away for a nine-point win against the Warriors the following night. With two more high-profile games upcoming at Phoenix and the Clippers on back-to-back nights, I think Indiana gets caught flat-footed in the Pacific Northwest tonight. The Blazers return home off a successful 132-126 victory in Sacramento and I like this home side team to keep the momentum rolling here. I don't think fatigue is a factor whatsoever, as we're still just at the start of the season. For all the reasons listed above, lay the short points!

T.M. Prediction: 119-111  Blazers


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.
