Game: Portland Trail Blazers at Milwaukee Bucks Apr 7 2012 8:35PM
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: Portland is coming off a rare win last night as it took overtime to defeat the Mavericks. It was rare in the fact that the Blazers have won two straight games which is the first time this has happened since late January as they were an atrocious 0-15 in their last 15 games following a victory prior to last night. They have won three straight games only once all season and those happened to be their first three games of the year, all of which took place at home. They are 0-3 straight up and ATS after two straight wins. The Bucks have had trouble the last two games against some bad teams but they have been able to walk away with victories. They blew a big lead against Cleveland but held on and last night, they blew another big lead but were able to hold off the lowly Hornets. Milwaukee has won three straight and is 12-4 over its last 16 games as it continues to make its playoff push. The Bucks trail the Knicks by only one game in the Eastern Conference and with games against the Thunder and Knicks on deck, this one is big . Milwaukee has not been very good this season when playing with no rest, going 6-12 both straight up and against the number but this is the first time there has been no travel involved as the Bucks plays consecutive home games for the first time this season. Portland meanwhile is just 1-4 straight up and 2-3 against the spread when playing consecutive road games with no rest. The situation is even tougher here following a win that needed overtime. This is a revenge game for Portland as it was blown out at home earlier this season but that means little here, especially on the road. Plus the Blazers are 2-14 ATS in their last 16 games revenging a loss when the opponent scored 110 or more points. Also, Portland is 0-7 ATS following two or more consecutive covers this season while going 3-14 ATS in its last 17 games as an underdog of fewer than five points. Milwaukee is 8-1 ATS this season following a win by six points or less. 10* (512) Milwaukee Bucks
