The Blazers keep on rolling this season, and they roll into Madison Square Garden on Monday to play the Knicks. New York has been playing well this season, but the Blazers seem to be undervalued on both sides of the ball.

Blazers at Knicks

Portland is only 7-10 ATS this season and 4-4 ATS on the road, but it is just a 1-point road favorite in the Garden tonight in what is a very winnable game. The Knicks might not have Enes Kanter, which hurts against a team like Portland and the red-hot Jusuf Nurkic, and with much better guard play, I’m kind of wondering why the Blazers are not -3 or -4.

Sure, Damian Lillard’s probably not 100 percent, and the Blazers have struggled some on this Eastern Conference road trip, but with plenty of bodies to throw at Kristaps Porzingis tonight, if they can slow down the Knicks’ big man, the Blazers will win this one. That is assuming Porzingis plays. He missed Saturday’s game because his back tightened up in the flight to Houston, and if he is still not feeling well this line is a steal in favor of the Blazers.

Portland is 2-2-1 ATS on the road against the Eastern Conference this season, and while the Blazers have not been great over the last year and change in non-conference games, if the Knicks are down both of their starting big men, lay the -1 with confidence.
