The Clippers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lakers are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Clippers last 4 Friday games. The over is 5-2 in Lakers last 7 overall. The Clippers are 8-0 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
I'm not trying to get behind the Los Angeles Lakers, a team that's drastically overrated and nothing has come easy for them this season. However, LeBron is expected to play and there's a chance AD plays as well. The Los Angeles Clippers have also cooled off big time over these last two weeks, which includes losing their last five games by an average of eight points. The Clippers are also losing by an average of 12 points while shooting 41.1 percent from the field in the underdog role. I like the Lakers in the underdog role here.
