Last year, teams met three times and as a result of these meetings, the Lakers are leading, having 2 victories against one in Portland. This year teams played only one match in February. Portland won. The game clearly showed the dominance of Portland, as the Lakers were able to get ahead of their rival only at the end of the second quarter and in the other three, the Portland were head and shoulders above.
The Lakers have won only three matches since the restart, but the club continues to be among the top contenders for the championship. Frank Vogel is betting on a stellar duo, which is why Anthony Davis arrived in Los Angeles early in the season.
The Lakes will face a worthy rival in the first round of the playoffs, so the favorite will hardly be able to relax, rather the opposite - they will have to turn on the speed.
After the restart of the season “Portland” was simply unrecognizable, especially the leader Damian Lillard, who worked wonders on the floor in almost every fight. The team lost only twice, as it turned out to be weaker than Boston (124-128) and Clippers (117-122).
Now the “trackers” will have to confront the “Lakers”, although after they have passed the “Blazers” they are not afraid of any opponent.
In our opinion, the Blazers are now on the move and capable of repelling the Lakers or at least avoiding the defeat so accurately, so we expect that the bet on the positive odds of Terry Stots' team will pass.
Our prediction is the victory of the Portland Trail Blazers, taking into account the handicap (+9.5) points for the odds of 1.50 in BC 1xBet
