Lakers are Suddenly a Hot Bet

Spurs vs Lakers

No, that headline is not a misprint...

There haven’t been many headlines about the Lakers being good at anything this season, but they’re currently on a 5-0 ATS run with five straight covers prior to the all-star break. They’ve of course been helped by being an underdog in each of the five games with two of those in the 16-point range, and they’ll face another double-digit spread (13-points) when they host the Spurs tonight.

Shark Bites
  • San Antonio is 20-3 SU in its last 23 games.
  • San Antonio is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games on the road.
  • The Lakers are 1-6 SU in their last seven games at home.

The Spurs are coming off a disappointing 105-86 loss to the Clippers last night, but they’re a perfect 9-0 SU in their last nine games with no days off between games. Unfortunately for Spurs backers, the team has been unable to cover the spread in the second game of back-to-backs in their last three opportunities.

Another trend working in the Lakers favor is that the Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs teams with losing records. Don’t expect any major upset tonight though, as the Lakers are 0-11 SU in their last 11 games vs teams with winning records.
