NBA Look Ahead, Friday, December 31, 9:30pm CT
We’ve got an incredible set of games hitting the NBA this week between both conferences. As the NBA continues to heat up, the positions in the conference are changing.
To keep up with all the action, we’ve got all the information you need to make great bets. The odds might not be out yet, but we can definitely get a head start on the games. Let’s take a look at our schedule.
We will look at the matchup between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Los Angeles Lakers
Portland Trail Blazers Travel to Los Angeles to Face the Lakers
Another Western Conference matchup to keep your eyes on is the Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Lakers. The Trail Blazers are just outside the top ten in the Western Conference, and the Lakers are at No.7.
A win for the Trail Blazers would be huge for positioning, but that’ll be much easier said than done. However, an upset is possible in this game.
Neither of these teams has been good against the spread this season. In fact, both of them currently have very similar against the spread records. The Portland Trail Blazers are 12-20 ATS, while the Lakers are 12-22.
Both teams are dealing with a lot of injuries and quarantined players, but we’ll take the Lakers. At least they’ll have LeBron James in the lineup.
