Tuesday night saw the Portland Trail Blazers leapfrog the Memphis Grizzlies for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Portland have gone 5-2 inside the bubble and have steamed into 8th in the conference as the Grizzlies have stuttered to 1-6.
Support has been building for the Trail Blazers over the past few weeks but after Damian Lillard's performance on Tuesday it has exploded.
Portland are now available for a best price of +7000, having been as long as +20000 with some books just weeks ago.
This incredible run has been in part down to Lillard's heroics. Tuesday's 61-point game to overcome the Mavericks, was his thrid of the season, putting him alongside one of the great in Wilt Chamberlain, as the only people to have three 60-point games in the same season.
In the bubble he's averaged 37 points per game, 9.3 assists, 4.4 rebounds and has a 41% 3-point percentage, whilst also being 81% on free throws. With Dame in this form it's no surprise that bettors are flocking to Portland.
Portland, if they hold onto their eighth seed, with one game, and a potential play-in remaining, will face the Los Angeles Lakers who topped the divison and are +280 favorites to win the Championship.
That would be a tough game but it hasn't put off Oddschecker bettors with over 32.56% of all Finals bets since yesterday being on Portland.
