They've lost 4 straight and 7 of 8 ATS, does that help?

I think the winner will win by 2 or less. I predict a score of 112-110, can be any team winning, especially since both teams can score in close games.

Portland large. If NY was a good team i might be scared but they arent. NY has nobody to guard Aldridge and Batum is long enough just to disrupt Carmelo.

knicks by 10.. wont even be close.. most of the knicks are active and healthy... the blazers loss their last 4 games on the road.. 5 of the last 6 road games have been against the tougher teams in the west conf ( GS, OKC, DAL, SA, HOU ) but most recently they took a loss to the wizards by 10 points on the road. the blazers are 4-4 on the road as favs dating back to December 1st. a 9 point loss to the Twolves back in October and a 30 point loss to the Spurs also back in October, ( the Spurs went 14-3 in October ) the only recent loss the knicks suffered on their home floor was a 14 point loss suffered to the Clippers early January.  94-123 blow out loss to the Thunder on Christmas. the knicks home losses to western conf teams have been close games. the rest of the losses combine to a total of only 24 points. while the clippers have swept the series with the knicks this season by a combine total of 27 points and the rockets also swept their series with NY for the combined total of 5 points. The knicks were able to split losses with the spurs revenging the 30 point loss with a 4 point win in San An where they came in at 11 point dogs. that win was 1 of 2 on a b2b which they split with the Rockets that sparked a 5 game win streak where they beat the Heat along the way.. this is the 2nd match up between these two teams and the knicks maybe looking for some revenge after losing in Portland by 11 points over the thanksgiving holidays earlier this season. the blazers caught the knicks 5 games in to what would turn out to be a 9 game slide. the blazers on the other hand were red hot an on a 11 game winning streak at the time. with a game against the Thunder on sunday (they'll try to win that one too) the knicks only have 2 games to play against Golden State and they'll have all the top west conf teams out of the way in jus the first half of the season. The first loss to the blazers came to the knicks on the road without Tyson Chandler and Raymon Felton while on a losing streak. The win over the spurs came against a healthy spurs team in San An while the knicks were guardless on the road as Felton and Pablo were out and they also beat a healthy Miami Heat team in South Beach without Tyson Chandler or J.R Smith..

I say knicks by 10 because the blazers seem to have loss their groove and besides the losses to sacramento and philly who both have worse records than the knicks all of the blazers losses they suffered in 2014 have come by 8 points or more. don't be surprised if the blazers are looking pass the knicks and that ugly record they carry to focus on the schedule that awaits after tonight. in the next 2 weeks the blazers will play the pacers the clippers the thunder the twolves and spurs. if the blazers get hammered here it helps vegas set up funny lines for the knicks vs thunder and blazers vs pacers. I think knicks ml is worth the risk = pay out

Portland was/is really benefiting from making the 3-point shots. To underline it: Portland averaged almost 110.0 points and hitting 39.7 percent from 3-point range during a 31-9 start of the season. Now they have lost 5 of 8 games and average 100.0 points and shooting 28.8 percent from 3-point range.

Both team are tied 20th in the league in opponent 3-point field goal percentage.

Carmelo Anthony is 20 of 42 from 3-point range over his last six games.

I take the over 207.5 in this matchup.

I have to say as bad as Portland is playing right now I don't like the way the Knicks are matched up against the Portland line up. To me Anthony vs Aldridge and Felton vs Lillard favors Portland.
Saying that my pick is Portland moneyline.
