You guys know I've been heavy on the Trail Blazers since last season and we continue to cash tickets with them, even early this season. This is a lot of points to give a Portland team that plays very well at home and has a point to prove against the rest of the West. Also, the Warriors haven't covered in six straight games and are clearly having issues figuring out how to play with Durant. The Trail Blazers and the points is a strong play here.
