Lakers a Good Bet as Double-Digit Dogs

Roommates will square off tonight at Staples Center as the Lakers will take a turn “hosting” the Clippers. It’s the second game in a home-and-home series which saw the Clippers run over the non-Showtime Lakers last night, 103-81 while covering a 14.5-point spread.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 2-12 ATS in their last 14 games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of LA Clippers's last eight games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Lakers' last eight games against divisional opponents.

Last night’s double-digit spread is a spot the Lakers have been performing well in, however, especially at home, as the team has gone 7-3 ATS this season as double-digit home underdogs. Covering big spreads hasn’t been the Clippers forte as they’re just 6-10 ATS on the year as double-digit faves. The teams have faced off three times this season, with the Lakers going 0-3 SU, but 2-1 ATS, once again facing a double-digit spread in each game. The Lakers opened as 12-point dogs for tonight's game.

Big spreads aside, the battle of Los Angeles has been a one-sided beatdown with the Clippers swinging the hammer, winning 10 straight games over the Lakers. The Clips are also on a good run in the second games of back-to-backs, going 9-2 SU in their last 11 games in that spot.

These two have gone UNDER the total in six straight games against each other. The total for tonight’s game opened at 207 — a mark they went UNDER last night and in their previous five contests against each other.
