Coming off their huge double overtime win at the Lakers last night, look for Charlotte to suffer a letdown in Portland on Wednesday. Lay the points on the Trail Blazers.
Our Wednesday night NBA selection is on the Portland Trail Blazers at home minus the points over the Charlotte Bobcats.
Certainly, coach Larry Brown has his young Bobcats headed in the right direction. Charlotte has covered an incredible eight straight games, and won perhaps their biggest game in franchise history with a win at Staples Center last night over the Lakers. But that win, which came in overtime, was such an emotional one that I believe the Bobcats will suffer a letdown on this Wednesday night at the Rose Garden in Portland.
These two teams actually met 11 days ago in North Carolina, and Charlotte upset Portland 102-97 as a 3-point underdog. But the Trail Blazers are a super 21-10 at home their last 31 when revenging a loss to an opponent. The Trail Blazers had last night off, so they'll be a bit more rested too. Lay the double-digits with the Blazers.
Free Pick: Trail Blazers -11 (-110)
