Lakers at Clippers odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Clippers 113, Lakers 109

Money line

The Clippers have beaten the Lakers in all three matchups this season, although the games have been decided by a total of 8 points.

The Lakers are reeling right now with just three wins in their last 13 games. They are 9-18 on the road this season but they are on the “road” tonight, as they share the arena with the Clippers. Including their other “road game” against the Clippers this season, they are 18-17 at Crypto.com Arena.

The Clippers, including two wins over the Lakers as the road team, are 20-13 in the arena.

Take the CLIPPERS (-150).

Against the spread

The Clippers beat the Lakers once by 4 points, once by 3 points and once by 1 point in the three previous matchups.

The Lakers’ last three losses have been by at least 3 points.

The Clippers have covered the spread in six of their last seven games overall.

Take the CLIPPERS -2.5 (-120).

Over/Under

Two of the three matchups between the Lakers and Clippers this season finished with totals of more than 217.

Five of the Clippers’ last eight games have had totals of less than 218. Four of the last six for the Lakers also have had fewer than 218 points.

However, based on the three previous games between the two teams and considering the low projected total, I LEAN OVER 217.5 (-112).
