The Lakers are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 0 days rest. The Thunder are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 8-1 in Lakers last 9 overall. The over is 7-2 in Thunder last 9 home games. The Lakers are 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Oklahoma City and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

It's always tricky when you get teams on the end of a back to back during this age, as you never know who is going to sit out until closer to tipoff. With that said, the Lakers are on a roll right now and starting to win games a little too comfortable. The Oklahoma City Thunder have been hit or miss all season long and they can go through offensive droughts from time to time. I'm not trying to step in front of the Lakers right now. I'll lay the points.
