The Lakers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Monday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Lakers last 10 overall. The under is 6-2 in Warriors last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Golden State and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Los Angeles Lakers have been a bad basketball team since the injury to AD, but they're showing signs of getting back on track and are winning their last five games by an average of 5.4 points. The Golden State Warriors are a tricky team to figure out, as one day they get blown out by an average club and the next day they're beating the Jazz, one of the best teams in the league. I still can't put my finger on this Golden State team. With that said, I'll lay the bucket with the rested Lakers.
