The Lakers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Nuggets are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Lakers last 4 overall. The over is 35-15-2 in Nuggets last 52 overall. The Lakers are 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Denver.

The Denver Nuggets in the underdog role is an attractive option, but as we saw in the playoffs and the matchup last week, the Lakers are capable of taking their game to another level in big games. While the Lakers have played a lot of overtimes and needed to come from behind, they're winning their last five games by an average of nine points while shooting 51.2 percent from the field. The Nuggets still struggle defensively and they're 2-6 against the spread as an underdog. I'll lay the bucket with the Lakers.
