I'll throw a free pick out tonight on the Portland Trailblazers.
The public is laying some heavy chalk tonight on the Lakers, it being their first game back after Kobe Bryant's tragic death and playing at home. Because the books knew the public were going to bet with their emotions in this game, they inflated the line.
Lakers -13 is too high. Most analysts, power rankings, and computer models will agree with that but despite what the numbers are telling people's brains, their heart is leading them to make a hasty decision and go with the Lakers tonight. I mean, how can you not root for Kobe's team? What are you, some kind of coldhearted being that has no soul??? Id ask all the Lakers betters tonight,"So do you think the bookies have any sympathy when they take all your money? "
And who's to say the Lakers get an edge in for Kobe, and that instead it won't actually mess with the Lakers head in the game it being their first in a week?
Lakers probably win tonight, but its not by 13.
Going against the public is the smart play here. Go with Portland.
