I get why the Lakers would be favored here, but the line being this short is telling me a lot. The books are trying to sucker people into betting the Lakers and personally when I saw this matchup I thought it would be around an 8 or 9 point spread. But Portland’s playing inspired basketball after rallying in the bubble and it just goes to show how dangerous this Trail Blazers team is when fully healthy. This matchup is one where I think the Lakers not having Avery Bradley for his defense is going to hurt and I legitimately would not be surprised if the Blazers pulled off an upset in the first round. I’ll take Portland and the points as my premium pick for this game
