The gritty story of the 2015-2016 Portland Trail Blazers continues on Sunday afternoon in the Western Conference Semifinals against the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors. Odds makers at Bovada listed the Blazers' over/under win total at the beginning of the season at 26.5 total games, second lowest in the league only to the Philadelphia 76ers.

While Portland plans to show the world why they belong, Golden State looks to flex their strength of numbers as they will begin the second round without reigning MVP Stephen Curry. Even without the greatest shooter in history, the Warriors open up betting lines as nine and a half point favorites according to virtual sports book BetOnline.

Golden State is 4-1 ATS in the playoffs this season and have covered the spread in seven of the last eight meetings with Portland. According to OddsShark.com, the Blazers are just 3-11 overall in their last 14 road games.

BetOnline lists today's OVER/UNDER line at 208.5 total points. The total has gone UNDER in six of Portland's last eight games as well as four of Golden State's last five games overall. However there are usually fireworks whenever these two Western Conference foes meet. The total has gone OVER in the last five games between the two. But gamblers beware, as Steph Curry played in each of those last five games against Portland.
