The Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. The over is 5-0 in Lakers last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 overall. The Lakers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 17-38 ATS in the last 55 meetings.
We've backed the Los Angeles Lakers a lot during this winning stretch, and I want to lean toward them in the underdog role. However, the Lakers are on the end of a back to back with a game that included overtime. The Los Angeles Clippers have a clear edge from that point, and they're just as motivated as the Lakers to stay out of the play-in tournament. I'll lay the bucket with the Clippers.
