The Los Angeles Lakers should win this game, obviously because they're the better team, and they need to take advantage of these games to get fat in the standings. However, the Lakers are banged up and that includes a questionable LeBron with a calf injury. The Portland Trail Blazers have their issues as well, but they're still a decent roster for a team that's rebuilding, and they're 4-4 ATS so far. Also, the Lakers have had issues with consistency, so let's see them string some wins together before seeing double-digit chalk. Give me the Trail Blazers.
