Spread: Los Angeles Lakers -4
Los Angeles Lakers have a 30-33 record (26-35-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 10th place of the West. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Suns with a 109-118 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by LeBron James with 27 ppg, adding 8.1 dimes and a team high 8.7 boards per game. He is followed by Kyle Kuzma with 18.9 ppg and 5.6 boards per game.
Los Angeles Clippers have a 36-29 record (37-28 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Spurs in the 7th place of the West. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won at home against the Knicks with a 128-107 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Lou Williams with 19.8 ppg and a team high 5.4 dimes per game off the bench. He is followed by Danilo Gallinari with 18.9 ppg and 6 boards per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once on the road (Lakers by 3 in overtime and Clippers by 11). Lakers have a 18-13 home record, while the Clippers are 18-17 on the road. Clippers are better offensively, scoring 114.1 ppg to Lakers’ 112.4, while both teams are almost equal defensively, allowing 113.6 and 113.9 ppg. Lakers have a better field goal percentage (47.5% to 46.8%), while Clippers have a better 3-point percentage (38.3% to 33.8%). Lakers are better both in boards grabbed (46.5 to 45.4) and in dimes made (25.3 to 23.3), while Clippers are better in turnovers committed (13.9 to 15.3). It is going to be a close game and while Vegas odds give the struggling Lakers a -4 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the Clippers in this one.
