As Ive said many times this season, the Los Angeles Lakers are a team I'm blindly fading, as this team struggles to beat the bad teams and gets rocked against the good teams. LeBron can't play out of this world every night at 37 years old. The Toronto Raptors have the rest advantage, and they've put together a few nice wins lately. The Raptors win in the favorite role by an average of 4.5 points. The Los Angeles Lakers are a depressed team that looks like they're ready for the season to end. Give me the Raptors.
