Tip-off: Tuesday, 10:00 p.m. EDT
Line: San Antonio -5.5, Total: 191

The San Antonio Spurs come into Tuesday’s matchup looking to change their luck at the Rose Garden where they’ve lost their last four. Basketball spreads.

The Spurs start a nine-game road trip, but are certainly not afraid of playing away from the AT&T Center. The Spurs are 15-5 SU and 13-6 ATS on the road this year, but Gregg Popovich would like to see better defense in away games where they allow 99.9 PPG, which is 5.2 points more than they allow at home. With Tim Duncan starting to play like the 34-year-old he is, DeJuan Blair needs to continue his solid play. Blair who is averaging 7.7 PPG and 6.9 RPG, had 14 points and 12 rebounds in Saturday’s win over the Rockets. The Spurs, who have won three straight and 11 of 12, have a very balanced attack. Manu Ginobili (18.8 PPG), Tony Parker (17.5 PPG), Tim Duncan (13.6 PPG) and Richard Jefferson (12.3 PPG) all are savvy veterans who know how to share the ball and work well as a team.

Portland, who has won five of its past six against the Spurs, need to get back to its winning ways. The Blazers have lost two straight at home thanks to some horrid shooting. Portland scored only 78 points (36.7% FG) on Thursday against the Celtics and 81 points (39.5% FG) on the less-than-competitive Kings Jan. 24. With Marcus Camby being out for a few more weeks, LaMarcus Aldridge (21.0 PPG) needs to continue to carry the load. During the Blazers five-game win streak from Jan. 15 to Jan. 22, Aldridge averaged 28.0 PPG, but in Portland’s past two home losses, Aldridge has scored 26 points combined. Basketball lines.

Portland loves the home energy, going 16-7 SU and 12-10 ATS at the Rose Garden this year. The Blazers also have not lost three straight at home since March 29-April 6, 2008. I suspect the Portland will put up a better effort then it did on Dec. 12, when it lost 95-78 to the Spurs at the AT&T Center. I like the Blazers, behind a big game from LaMarcus Aldridge, to continue their winning ways against the Spurs and win outright.

The Blazers are 6-2 (SU and ATS) in the past eight meetings, including a perfect 4-0 mark at home (both SU and ATS). This highly-rated FoxSheets trend also supports Portland to cover the spread.

Play On – Home teams (PORTLAND) – off a home loss, extremely well rested team – playing 3 or less games in 10 days. (50-18 over the last 5 seasons.) (73.5%, +30.2 units. Rating = 3*).

This four-star FoxSheets trend expects the game to finish Under the total.

Play Under – Any team (PORTLAND) – extremely well rested team – playing 3 or less games in 10 days, a marginal winning team (51% to 60%) playing a winning team. (37-9 over the last 5 seasons.) (80.4%, +27.1 units. Rating = 4*). Basketball betting lines.
