Prediction and Analysis: Our prediction for Sunday night’s match-up favors the Lakers securing victory at home against the Portland Trailblazers is likely that they’ll do it easily in front of their crowd. With their perfect record at home so far (3-0), and having struggled on the road at 1-2 (trailblazers have only won once away from Portland in four tries so far), they have an obvious edge when it comes to familiarity and comfort level in front of the home crowd.
However, we believe this matchup will feature low total points. The under has been an influential trend across both teams’ performances, making it a sure bet. The Lakers have gone 6-2 under in their last eight games while 4-4 against. Furthermore, 7 times out of the last 10 head-to-head matchups between them, this score came up short!
The Lakers might use their offensive firepower to dictate the pace of this game, while the Trailblazers look to tighten up their defense on the road. Given both teams tend to favor lower-scoring contests, our best bet would be the under 215.5 total points scored in this matchup.
