Wager Alarm NBA Best Bets - February 27
Adam Ronis brings you his best bets for Thursday's slate
We have a four-game slate in the NBA tonight and LeBron James and Joel Embiid are out. This is a light night to place a wager. Each game has a spread of at least 6.5 points and two totals are 218.5 and under.
Portland Trail Blazers (+10) at Indiana Pacers, 8 p.m. ET
The line seems to high. The Blazers aren't the same team without Damian Lillard, but C.J. McCollum has carried the team in his absence. The Blazers have lost four of their last five games with the lone win a three-point victory at home against the Pistons. They lost to a good Celtics team and two of the losses came against the hot Pelicans. The Blazers are still in playoff contention. The Pacers have won three of four, including a win over the Bucks. The other two wins came against the Knicks and Hornets. The Pacers are 14-14-2 at home ATS. The Blazers are 2.5 games behind the Grizzlies for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference and will keep the game close.
