NBA FREE PICK: Trail Blazers -8
Sacramento vs. Portland,
12/27/2011 22:00 EDT,
Score: 79 - 101
Point Spread: -8/-110 Portland
Both of the these teams played last night. The Trail Blazers were able to hold off the Philadelphia 76ers for a 107-103 win, while the Kings shocked the Los Angeles Lakers 100-91.
I believe the oddsmakers have set this line at 8-points for a reason, and the public is biting the bait and taking the Kings. I backed the Lakers yesterday thinking they would bounce back, but it appears that game against the Bulls on Sunday took a lot out of them and playing on the road just made it that much harder. I think the Kings are in for a similar performance in this game.
Portland doesn't usually get a lot of hype, which is why it seems a little strange that they are this big of favorites after the Kings just beat the Lakers. Ill take my chances and roll a small play. BET THE TRAIL BLAZERS -8
