I'm a die-hard L.A. Lakers' fan. No, seriously. Ask my wife. I do love the Lakers. I love Kobe. I love Phil. I love everythign about this wonderful city of Los Angeles, but I can't pick the Lakers to beat the Celtics tonight in Game 7.
Why? Because there's just no value in it. L.A. is awesome, but they're huge, massive, incredible favorites in tonight's game.
The betting odds on Boston are +270 on the moneyline. I have to take that bet.
I just have to.
