Los Angeles Lakers 19-3 at Portland Trail Blazers 9-13

10:35PM EST

Opening Line: Lakers -3.5 and 221.5
Current Line: Lakers -3.5 and 221.5

This is quite frankly a line that makes zero sense with the Lakers expected to be at full strength. The Blazers remain a mediocre or worse western conference team and they are not a team that’s been dominant at home. They’re just 4-4 on the season there while the Lakers are bringing a 10-1 road record. The Lakers are best in the league in defensive efficiency and also top six in offensive efficiency and we are getting a gift with this line being in single digits, let alone 3.5. Crazy things can happen but this is a smash play.

Betting Pick: Lakers  -3.5

Thursday Review

We got the pace we thought we were going to get. Betting over 233 we went into overtime tied at 125. The final ultimately landed on 271 in a win without much sweat. Those are the best kind.

  • ✅Over 233

The win brings us to 27-18 on the season.
