10* GAME OF THE DAY (NBA) << WON BOTH NBA YESTERDAY >>
Phoenix vs. Portland,
12/06/2018 22:00 EDT,
Score: 86 - 108
Total: -110/+216 Over
The set-up: Two struggling teams collide in this one and with each pushing the pace, I expect this one to fly “over” the number once it’s all said and done. The Suns fell 122-105 at home to the Kings in their last game, while the Blazers fell 111-102 on the road in Dallas on Tuesday. Phoenix is desperate for a win, so far it’s only 1-11 on the road this year. Phoenix averages 103 PPG and it allows 114. Portland’s lost three in a row and six of its last seven. Overall the Blazers average 112.5 PPG and they allow 111.7.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well, but Phoenix has seen the total go “over” the number in five of its last six after playing two consecutive divisional contests, while Portland has seen the total go “over” in 12 of its last 20 after two or more consecutive road losses. This number is low, play the “over.”
