76ers vs Lakers prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers should be favored at home, but this many points isn't something I can get behind. The Lakers have had issues all year stringing wins together, and their 31-38 ATS record doesn't put them in good standing with bettors. LeBron James also remains questionable and while he plays most nights, the fact he's constantly on the injury list tells you he's not feeling great. The Philadelphia 76ers have injuries of their own, but they continue to compete, and they're a profitable 36-32-1 ATS on the season. Also, the 76ers have won 7 straight games against the Lakers, not losing to LAL since March 2020. Give me the points.
