Analysis
This one was an easy bet to make. Just four days ago Portland smoked Sacramento on this floor by 26 points and it was all but over after the first quarter. In the NBA, revenge is a very real thing. Both teams have played since,  with Portland expending a lot of energy back at home beating Toronto, so energy and travel. Sacramento has been at home and beat Indiana pretty soundly. After this trip out (again), Portland is home for seven games in the next nine days. So not only are they thinking about being home for an extended period of time, resting people tonight is not off the table. In fact, Lillard is probable, but does have an ankle tweak. In that last game, Portland shot over 41% from behind the arc, and although they're a great three point shooting team, that has to regress. The same can be said for Sacramento, who only shot 26%. They were doubled up in turnovers, another thing that I look to regress. Sacramento had also played the night before against Toronto and it was the third game in four days. Now, considerably more rested, they should win this game.
