The oddsmakers currently have the Lakers as -6.5 point favorites at the -105 price with the over/under at 229 total points. The betting public has 70% of their money on Portland.
The Blazers took the 100-93 game 1 upset win and continue their hot streak lead by the bubble MVP, Damian Lillard, who put up 34 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Portland went 13 of 34 compared to the Lakers 5 of 32 from 3-point land. That 24 point difference was the X factor in this game along with the Blazers closing the game on a 19-6 run over the final 6 minutes of the game.
On the other side of the court, the Lakers weren’t happy at all with their game one performance. They looked disoriented at times and just kept taking bad shots on offense, so look for the Lakers Coach, Frank Vogel to make the necessary adjustments to their lineups to fix these ongoing issues.
LeBron James led LA with 23 points, 17 rebounds and 16 assists along with Anthony Davis’ 28 points and 11 rebounds, but that tag team tandem still wasn’t enough to get past the offensive production from these Blazers.
Portland is 5-0 straight up in their last 5 games and the total has gone over in 6 of the Blazers last 7 games.
Los Angeles is 0-6 against the spread in their last 6 games and the total has gone under in 8 of the Lakers’ last 12 games.
Your free pick in this Blazers/Lakers game is to roll with the Lakers First Quarter -1 point at the the -150 price.
