If our NFL week 8 picks are anything as entertaining as week 7′s results, then we are in for a wild ride. We made sure to go for the easiest games to pick here (well most of them) so expect plenty of chalk, an upset or two, and at least one potential blockbuster game between contenders. Let’s get right down to it.
New Orleans Hornets vs Los Angeles Lakers NBA Online Odds
Los Angeles Lakers: Working for playoff spot
Los Angeles is just half a game behind Utah for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with just over a week remaining in the regular season. The Lakers would be in the best shape if they won all of their remaining games, but with this year’s squad, that seems nearly impossible.
New Orleans Hornets: Looking to play role of spoiler
Already eliminated from the playoffs, the Hornets are playing the role of spoiler for potential playoff teams. With just three spots in the Western Conference yet to be claimed, there are not many teams left fighting for the playoffs. The Hornets are 27-50 this year, with a road record this season of 11-27.
For tonight’s game between New Orleans and Los Angeles, we find the line at Sportsinteraction.com. The Lakers are heavily favored at home with a line of -8.5 (-110) while the Hornets are underdogs on the road at +8.5 (-110). The Over/Under is set at 195.5 total points scored. We will bet LA at -8.5 (-110).
