The Portland Pilots absolutely smoked San Diego’s boots when these clubs met a few weeks ago, and they’re playing some of their best ball right now, winning their last five games by an average of 14.6 points. The San Diego Toreros aren’t playing well, and they’re not covering numbers. This line is soft, honestly. I’ll gladly side with Portland and the small chalk.
