The Portland Trail Blazers take their show on the road tonight, and if you thought they would be favored (-3) then you were right!
The fact that they are favored despite being on the road tells you what Vegas thinks about the Los Angeles Lakers. Do think the Blazers will win, but also know that they tend to play a lot of close games so do not know if I love the line for this one.
In case you were looking for the TV info, and none of my semi-witty banter then here it is and just be on your way good sir!

For those of you still with me, the Lakers are an old joke that thinks they are still relevant. They are like Vanilla Ice.
Shooting guard Kobe Bryant is still not coming through the door for the Lakers and until then they will most likely be the underdog in every game they play. It is funny how Mike D’Antoni was a jerk to Pau Gasol all last season, and now the coach seems to think his power forward is the best low post player in the league. My how times change ever so quickly, don’t you think?
Two more basketball previews coming this morning and also Rant Sports Prep material later tonight just in case you are still hungry for the good stuff. No days off folks.
