    Anyone else like the Lakers/Blazers under 196?

    Two teams with major differences in their starting 5s. New starters often mean slow starts. If the Lakers get that lead in the 2nd half Kobe is sitting so he can heal.

    No way, both teams are too deep to stay under, not much of a drop off when they go their benches. The Lakers might score 115 on there own.

    Lakers go up and down the court, Portlan might slow game up with Odem though

    Tough call

    It is tough, both teams have a lot of depth depends what guys get the minutes kind of. Blazers are maybe to be a good defensive team, I would be surprised if they get blown out though

    I look for the Lakers to score about a 110 points alone. The only question I have is if the Blazers can score in the 90's.

    lakers/blazers over 48 1st quarter
    -This was total that went over in the 1st quarter in all their meetings in the 2007-08 season. NOte: the total for the games between these two teams stayed under the number in two of those games. 1 like the first quarter over 48 than the game going over 196. I also like the game going over 196.

    only take road teams in 1st quarter is a better system

    I agree. I like the cavs and trailblazers as road underdogs in the 1st quarter. Anytime I am getting +2 to +1 for the first quarter, I will be taking the underdog.

    I would try to take a wider range, even take road teams at pick. The system is good because home teams win in the NBA because of their bench, so when you have the better team at a pick or getting points usually an advantage.

    I like the UNDER on this game as well, but not enough to bet it. I'm on the Trail Blazers ML, personally. I think this game is going to reignite the Lakers/Blazers rivalry with an opening day loss for the Lakers.

    TNT isn't going to show a clock with the score anymore? Never seen that before.

    portland is an inconsistent read from last year but the under was hitting most games i paid attention to

    not sure how the lines will adjust this year with the high profile defensive oden being on people's minds

    The first quarter was slow start but this second quarter the scoring has really picked up. Portland just needs to do there fair share of scoring which they are not doing right now. 24 points with 4 mins left.

    In one of my previous threads I suggested the UNDER. The 'Blazers I must admit have been a big help.

    The over is not out of question yet but in danger. We figured the Lakers would score 100-120 but then we ask can Portland score in the 90s? They have 35 points at half but I think in the second half they come out scoring and shooting at a better percentage. Only thing that scares me is Lakers get a huge lead and sit Kobe and Gasol.

    I like your cautious attitude. The Lakers did this all last year, They would build a big lead at the half or in the third quarter. Then they would:

    a) Blow out the opponent and go to the bench early.

    b) Let the opponent back in the game.

    Anything is possible....no question...for all the Over guys...
    if Oden gets in foul trouble and sits...that would be beneficial to you in 2nd half

    Portland shoots 33% in the first half, then reels off seven quick points in the third and it's game on. See what I mean about the Lakers? The UNDER still looks good.

    The Lakers look pretty good, but it appears Portland is still in pre-season mode.
    The UNDER is going to happen.
