Lakers at Warriors odds, lines, picks and predictions


Warriors 124, Lakers 110

Money line

PASS on the money line.

The Lakers have struggled too much lately, and on the road this season, to really think they would make a smart pick tonight. Plus, they are struggling with their health. The matchup against Davis will be a challenge for the Warriors, but the Warriors have more mismatches.

While Golden State has lost two in a row it hasn’t lost consecutive home games this season. However, the -300 price tag is just not worth the risk.

Against the spread

The Lakers are 24-32 ATS overall this season and are 12-14 ATS on the road. Los Angeles lost to Golden State on opening night by 7 points.

The Warriors are 29-23-4 ATS overall and 17-11-2 ATS at home.

I’m banking on a bounceback game from the Warriors after their loss to the Knicks and the banged-up Lakers will be the victims.

Take the WARRIORS -6.5 (-115).


The first matchup between the two teams had a total of 235 points.

Four of the Warriors’ last six games have had 230 points or more and they have scored 120 points or more in five of their last eight games.

The Lakers have scored 110 points or more in five of their last seven games.

Take OVER 223.5 (-112).
