Betting Odds

Point Spread: Lakers -2
O/U Total: 200.5

In Denver’s last game against Oklahoma City they lost 114-110 as a 6.5 point home dog. The Lakers didn’t fare much better in their last game against the Cavaliers losing both SU and against the spread 105-120 as 14 point home dogs.

It would be an understatement to suggest the Nuggets are having a rough year so far gaining only 19 wins out of 52 games on the season. They’ve been terrible. They haven’t been much better against the spread covering the posted line only 19 times. The Lakers are seeing an even tougher year with just 13 wins to speak of out of the 52 games played. Against the point spread they’re a little more successful for their backers covering the line 23 times.

Denver has lost five straight games and covered the posted odds only one time over that span losing to Philadelphia on the road 105-98 as a 7.5 point dog. The Lakers have won only one game in their last 5 but to be fair 4 of those 5 were on the road. They shocked the Bulls on their home court on January 29 123-118 as a +9 point underdog.

The last time these two teams met was December 30, 2014 when Lakers went into Denver and upset the Nuggets 111-103 as a +5.5 road dog. However, historically in the last 10 times these teams have played the Nuggets are 7-3 covering the spread six of those 10 games. The total line has favored the over with 6-4 mark over the last 10 in this series.

Denver has scored an average of 100.6 points per game while allowing their opponents 104.3 for a differential of – 3.7 PPG. The Lakers have been even less successful scoring an average of 99.4 points and allowing 106.2 for a differential of -6.9.

Free ATS Pick

Not a lot to choose from with the Nuggets and Lakers both losers of 13 of their last 14 games! However, the road team has won three of the last four games in this matchup and covered the betting line in four straight. Neither team deserves to be favored here so getting the points even on a team playing back to back with travel is the way to go here.

Take the Denver Nuggets +2
