Los Angeles Lakers vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

The San Antonio Spurs haven't won a game in over a month, and they're also just 9-14 ATS on the season despite being underdogs every night. The Los Angeles Lakers have covered 6 of their last 10 games, and they beat the Spurs by 3 points on Wednesday. The better team usually gets even more comfortable in the second meeting in such a close time period. I expect a better and more confident win for the Lakers here. I'll lay the points with the road team.
