NBA Free Pick | Warriors at Lakers

Rate this Entry
The Los Angeles Lakers really miss Anthony Davis. Since the All-Star has been out of the lineup, the Lakers have lost four straight. Going without Dennis Schroeder has hurt the Lakers as well.
In a recent blowout loss to Utah, L.A. shot 40 percent from the field including an abysmal 8-of-33 from behind the three-point arc.
Can the Lakers get a much-needed win at home against Pacific Division rival Golden State?

Warriors Have Been Warrior-like
The Warriors have been playing well as of late. Prior to a Friday night matchup with the Charlotte Hornets at home, the Warriors had won their previous two games. Golden State beat New York and Indiana both on the road.
A favorite over the Knicks, the Warriors covered the four-point spread. They beat the Pacers as a two-point underdog at online sportsbooks.
Golden State continues to improve as they are led by former MVP Stephen Curry, who is second in the NBA in scoring averaging 30 per game. Curry had 24 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists in the win over the Knicks and 37, six, and six in the victory over the Pacers.
Kelly Oubre Jr. (15.2 ppg) is playing well as is the rest of the supporting cast. The Warriors 10th in the league in scoring averaging 114.2 points per game.
We came close to hitting the 40-point prop for Lillard in our last pick, but our side didn’t. Take a look at our Wizards at Trail Blazers betting pick.

Screeching Halt
L.A. was cruising right along at 22-7 before the four-game losing skid. They will play Portland on Friday before Sunday’s Warriors game. The problem for the Lakers has been the absence of Davis and Schroeder.

Minus a 124-point outburst against Washington, the Lakers offense has been dreadful. In the other three games aside from the Wizards, L.A. scored 89, 94, and 98 points. You don’t win many games in the NBA scoring fewer than 100 points.
Now, the Lakers are still one of the better defensive teams in the league. They were No. 1 in points allowed, but they have dropped to No. 3 (106.5 ppg).
The Lakers are still playing solid defense. They held Miami to 96 and Brooklyn to 109 well below its season average of 121. This stat could be part of an NBA prop bet.

Warriors at Lakers Free Pick
With Davis out of the lineup, we know that the Lakers are not scoring as much as they had over the first 29 games of the season. With their defense still among the NBA’s elite, the Lakers have seen their total go Under in four of its last five games.

While Golden State has been playing well, it has only scored over 120 points three times in its last 10 games. Not surprisingly, the Under has hit in seven of the Warriors last ten games.
When the Warriors and Lakers played on Jan. 18 - also at the Staples Center - Golden State won 115-113 covering as a nine-point underdog. The total, which was set at 225.5, went Over.
This time around, expect a similar total based on the average scoring of both teams. This time, play the Under up to 225.

NBA Free Pick: UNDER up to 225
