The Golden State Warriors (3-2) travel to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers (1-4). NBA odds are at Top Bet sportsbook.
Golden State has had an erratic year so far. They are 2-1 SU on the road and 2-0-1 ATS. They have split their home games 1-1 SU and 1-1 ATS. They have scored as little as 87 points in a game, and as high as 114 points. They have given up as little as 85 points, and have given up as much as 110 points. They haven’t won or lost two games in a row.
As erratic as the Warriors season has been, the Lakers have been a train wreck. Their only win of the season was a 29 point home win against Detroit. They are 1-4 SU and ATS this year, having lost home games to the Clippers and Mavericks, and dropping both road games to Utah and Portland. They have been inconsistent both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
The Lakers are a 6 ½ point home favorite. The trends are all pointing in Golden State’s direction. They are 7-1-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall, dating back to last year. The Lakers are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games. That is why you should load up on the Lakers -6 ½. This is the epitome of a contrarian play at the online sportsbooks.
