This one is awfully simple, and it would be simple regardless of what the Heat were laying on the NBA odds (within reason). Miami is an awesome home team, and it has been ripping right through its competition, while Portland is a lousy road team that is 1-5 SU and ATS in its last six played away from the Rose Garden. The Blazers are going to be perfectly happy when they reach the All Star Break, knowing that at least they are going to get some time to regroup and hopefully make a push at the playoffs. More importantly though, is what happened up at the Rose Garden just a month ago. Miami lost 92-90, and it did so in a game in which G Dwyane Wade and F LeBron James combined to score 33 points. That’s basically what LeBron has been averaging over the course of his last five games, all of which he has scored at least 30 points to set a Miami team record. All it’s going to take is around 25 points out of LBJ and around 20 out of D-Wade, and this game should be about as good as over with. There’s no way that Portland is going to sneak up on this Miami outfit for a second time this year.
Trail Blazers @ Heat Pick: Miami Heat -11.5
Trail Blazers @ Heat Prediction: Heat 112 – Blazers 96
