Portland, like most teams, plays like a different animal at home. Tonight should be more of the same as a double-digit favorite against a tired Sacramento team.

The last time these teams met, earlier this month, we easily cashed the "over" as the Blazers dropped 118 points on the road. If Portland can throw up 118 against the Kings on the road, there is no telling how many points they will score tonight at home against a Sacramento team that played Monday night.

Portland has been a machine at cashing the "over" at home. In their last six home games dating to January 20, the Blazers averaged 115.3 points and cashed the "over" each time. Considering the Kings are giving up close to 109 points per game over their last five contests, their defense stands little chance of slowing the Blazers.

The Blazers have cashed the "over" in four of their past six overall. The Kings, on the other hand, have cashed the "over" in five of their last six games, and it’s evident they are in full tank mode.

With the Kings cashing the "over" in four of their last five road games, giving up more than 107 points during that stretch, I see the Blazers’ offense pouring it on tonight, making the 210½ over/under on the NBA odds board a strong "over" value with our NBA picks.
