Arizona is 1-7 in their last 8 games overall and 7-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Los Angeles is 4-9 in their last 13 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 home games while the over is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games overall. The road team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that could be made for both sides here, but realistically I can’t see anything here except a low-scoring affair across the board between two teams that aren’t necessarily known for their offensive prowess. I think this could end up being a 3-2 game whichever way you slice it, so give me the under in this spot.
