Tonight the Trail Blazers travel to Los Angeles that figures to be a high scoring affair on network television. The line opened expectantly at 221.5 but has dipped down to 219. Any total that is set in this range is an eyebrow raiser. More times than not you’ll be able to cash on grabbing the under in situations this high.

This is a scenario where I’d say let the good times roll. The good times with both of these teams has been cashing on overs. Los Angeles is coming off a dominating win against the Phoenix Suns, in which they limited the quick strike Suns offense. Give Mike D’Antoni credit for keeping this team above the media’s expectations throughout injuries and an unsure lineup.

The key tonight is the obvious. Neither team plays sound defense and both thrive on the offensive end of the court. Balance is there for the Lakers from their starting five and an occasional player or two off the bench. That use to not be the case with the Portland Trailblazers but lately they’ve been getting contributions from their bench. Besides Mo Williams players like Thomas Robinson and Will Barton have stepped up considerably.

Expect lots of three balls and plenty of put back dunks. Play the over
