Portland Trail Blazers 15-22 (14-21-2 ATS)

Portland was able to interrupt his series of five defeats in a row, beating away Washington 122-103. But the joy of the Trail Blazers did not last long. In the next match, the Trail Blazers lost to Miami (111-122).

It seems that this team has already exhausted itself. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are not able to drag Portland. Even the arrival of Carmelo Anthony did not improve the situation. Because of this, the Trail Blazers run the risk of losing the playoffs this season.

Toronto Raptors 24-12 (21-15 ATS)

Toronto continues to hold the fourth line of the Eastern Conference, but Nick Ners’s wards are often febrile. For a long time, Raptors can not give a series of several victories in a row. For almost two weeks in a row they alternate victories with defeats.

In their last match, the Raptors managed to defeat Brooklyn 121-102. But before that, the team from Canada lost on a visit to Miami 76-84.

Trail Blazers vs Raptors Predictions

Portland is not the best way to play away. This season, Portland won only 7 of 20 away matches. Given how the Trail Blazers perform in Canada, we doubt their success in the meeting. Most likely, Toronto will take advantage of its site and win the match.
