Sam Martin's 15* NBA BOUNCE-BACK WINNER ($30)!!: The Whiz Kid looks to bounce back from an AWFUL FRIDAY, which included a horrible beat on Toronto (outscored by 16 points in fourth quarter), and look to regain his momentum that saw him take a 5-1 ATS RUN into yesterday. Sam has just one NBA Pick tonight - and you can get his 15* NBA WINNER FOR JUST $30!!
Game: Portland Trail Blazers at Milwaukee Bucks Apr 7 2012 8:35PM
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: 15* Play on Milwaukee. Portland is coming off a big upset win against Dallas last night, winning outright as a six-point underdog, and we'll fade the Trailblazers here without rest and in the obvious letdown spot as they take on a good offensive club in Milwaukee. That win against the Mavericks was their first road victory since March 16, and we look for Portland to look sluggish on both ends of the court here tonight.
That road win in March was also a big upset victory - that coming in Chicago when they upset the Bulls as a big 8.5-point underdog. And the following game Portland came out flat in a 16-point SU and ATS loss against Oklahoma City. That's the type of game we expect from Portland here tonight, as they are just 8-19 on the road this year and scoring just 92 points per game.
That type of scoring output doesn't matchup well against Milwaukee, who is averaging 100 points per game here at home. And the Bucks have been even better of late, putting up scores of 107 or more points in four of their last six overall (none lower than 95 points in those six contests). Bucks scorched the Blazers by 29 points back in Portland in this season's only meeting, and they just need an average offensive night to cover this number comfortably! 15* Play on Milwaukee.
