The Lakers are 4-11 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Oklahoma City and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Los Angeles Lakers have found ways to put together a couple wins, but they're still struggling to win comfortably, and I'm not thrilled about backing them on the end of a back to back that included overtime. With that said, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been god awful this season and nothing has changed. OKC is also on the end of a back to back as well. Thick number that I don't love, but it's Lakers or pass for me. The Thunder are that bad.
