Why Portland Trail Blazers are a good bet ATS?
The Portland Trail Blazers have finally hit their stride this season. In the first half of the season, the Trailblazers played decent, but not great, basketball. They had a winning record, but it’s nothing like what they’ve done in their last 4 games.
Portland has gone 4-0 on the moneyline and against the spread in their last 4. They beat a couple of NBA Championship contenders during the streak: Golden State 129-107 and Philadelphia 130-115. That alone gives them a shot both straight up and against the spread on Wednesday.

Why Boston Celtics are a good bet ATS?
Boston must battle Toronto on the road on Tuesday night, and that could affect how they play on Wednesday. However, the affect shouldn’t be that drastic. Not only that, a winning angle is to back teams coming off road games against quality opponents at home.
The Boston Celtics are a different team in the TD Garden. They’ve gone a solid 19-12 ATS. Although they’re on a downturn in terms of winning against the spread overall, they’ll turn it around against the Trailblazers on Feb. 27.

Trail Blazers vs Celtics Final NBA Betting Analysis
Boston faces a dilemma in this game. The Celtics, no doubt, will work as hard as possible to beat the rival Raptors on Feb. 26. They must then travel back to Boston and ready themselves for the Trailblazers.
If Boston beats Toronto, they’ll likely have a letdown. If the Raptors beat them, they’ll want to step it up, but they still won’t cover. In fact, they’re going to lose to the Portland Trailblazers straight up.
Portland’s been shooting lights out. They’ll force the Celtics to play their game. The Traiblazers take it on the moneyline.
