NBA | Portland 109 @ L.A. Lakers 128 | 12/01 | 3:30 AM UTC
L.A. Lakers -225
ANALYSIS: I'm picking this game early, which is unusual for me, simply out of spite regarding Portland. I backed the Blazers at home last night against the short-handed Clippers and went to sleep with Portland up 18 points in the third quarter ... and they freaking lost?!?! Wow. Now a second game in 24 hours after that collapse and having to travel. Both LeBron James and Anthony Davis are probable and LA is playing a lot better lately and gets Patrick Beverley back from suspension.
