The Lakers are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Golden State. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Golden State and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Lakers have done nothing but beat up on the Warriors these last two years in preseason, but that's probably why you lean toward the Warriors this time around. Not only is it tough to beat the same team over and over, but at some point the Warriors players have to show some pride and step up. The Los Angeles Lakers are also resting a ton of their starters for this game. At home, I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Warriors.
