Vik (20-12): The Picks: Cavs/ Wizards Under 218, Lakers -2.5
The Cavs are coming off of a huge win last night vs. the Bobcats, a game in which they scored 113 points. I don’t see that happening again, as they rank 26th in points and 25th in pace. The Wizards are very Jekyll and Hyde, and just look dysfunctional. There is also reverse line movement on the Under.
The Lakers matchup well vs. the Blazers, and the addition of Tyson Chandler and his rebounding and rim protection was exactly what the Lakers needed. There is also reverse line movement on the Lakers tonight.
Jason (24-36-1): I promised one game from here on out until I get to .500, but there were just two SCREAMING for me, so I had to pull the trigger. New Orleans -1, Lakers -2.5.
Ryan (10-17-1): The Picks: Pistons +9.5, Lakers -2.5
