Could UNDER Be The Play For Fatigued Warriors?

Offense may be surprisingly hard to come by when the Golden State Warriors, on the second half of a back-to-back, take on the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday. The UNDER has hit in the past four meetings between the Warriors and Lakers with the two teams averaging a combined 201.5 points. That being said, the Lakers are getting into shootouts this season.

  • The Warriors are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games within the Pacific Division.
  • The visiting team is 1-5 SU in its last six games between the Warriors and Lakers.
  • The Warriors are 4-22 SU in their last 26 games on the road against the Lakers.

Luke Walton will be facing the Warriors for the first time since taking the coaching job for the Lakers this past offseason. Though early in the year, Walton has turned the worst offense in the NBA last season into a top-10 scoring squad behind the guard trio of D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams.

Golden State has gone a perfect 3-0 SU on the road during this young season, but is just 1-2 ATS in that spot. The Warriors were unable to cover either of their road games as double-digit faves, with an average scoring margin of plus-seven points, and opened as 11-point favorites Friday.
