Portland is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning home record and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss. San Francisco is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favortie and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400 while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
I get the case to be made either way in this one, as the Pilots are capable of sneaking in the back door for a cover but a 20+ point win for the Dons wouldn’t surprise me either. Instead, I’m going to side with the over. These two teams just battled to a total of 145 in the last meeting and I think this is a similar type of game where we sail over the total in this one so give me the over.
