NBA Playoff Odds: Trail Blazers Favored Over Mavericks In Game Three.

Game three of the Dallas Mavericks playoff series with the Portland Trail Blazers is later tonight at 9:30p.m. After winning the first two games, the Trail Blazers need to beat the Mavericks in four out of the next five games to win the series. The series goes back to Portland tonight and while the Mavericks were a terrific road team during the regular season, their playoff struggles on the road have been well documented. 

↵

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that it's the Trail Blazers that are favored in game three. The Blazers are favored by five and a half points.

↵

The Blazers have one of the best home court advantages in the league and the Mavericks will likely have to weather a mammoth effort by the Blazers in order to sneak out a game three win.

↵

They have shown that they are the better team through two games, it would do a lot to quell the ghosts of Mavericks past if they show it through three.
