The Warriors are 17-36-1 ATS in their last 54 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games. The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 37-17-2 in Warriors last 56 road games. The over is 12-4 in Lakers last 16 overall. The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Lakers should be favored at home, and it's the home team that's won 7 of the last 10 meetings between these clubs. However, the Warriors as underdogs are hard to pass up given their championship experience and shooting ability that takes the crowd out of games real quick. The Warriors have also won 12 of their last 21 playoff games as underdogs, and are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 playoff games as underdogs. I'll grab the free bucket with the Warriors on the road.
