We cashed on the Blazers and the points in game one while some even cashed with Portland on the ML and while betting against the Lakers isn’t a smart strategy over the course of a full season, I’m going to ride Portland again here. We saw in game one how poor L.A.’s guard play is without Avery Bradley, as Bradley brings a level of intensity on defense that no one currently in the bubble for L.A. can match. I expect Portland to give L.A. all they can handle once again, and rest assured I’ll have a bit on the ML as well, but for my premium pick for this game, give me Portland and the points.
