Portland Wants to Get Away From the Pack in West Against Atlanta

Trail Blazers out to make a move in the West

Sitting in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference standings, the Trail Blazers are tied with two other teams at 4.5 games out of first place. A win would propel Portland to third place by themselves. It would be a needed win for Portland, which has gone just 6-4 in their last 10 games played and enter this contest coming off a loss to the Lakers by one-point. The Lakers are one of the worst teams in the league.

Atlanta holding onto final spot in the East

With the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference currently in their grasp, the Hawks need to break their three-game losing streak right now if they want to remain where they are. They also have the opportunity to advance in the standings if they can find a way to string some wins together. With just nine wins on the road, the Hawks will find it difficult to win this game against Portland on Wednesday night.

Despite Portland entering this contest coming off a loss, they are still nine-point favorites to take down Atlanta at home at the sportsbook of The spread and the money line are favorable for Portland tonight, but we like the spread more, which is why we will lay the line with 20 percent of our bankroll as the Trail Blazers grab a much-needed win.
