BIG AL's 71-35 ATS NBA GAME 1 - LAKERS/NUGGETS!
Denver Nuggets (54-33) at Los Angeles Lakers (60-21)
Friday, September 18, 2020 at 9:00 pm
At 9 pm, our selection is on the Los Angeles Lakers minus the points over Denver. The Nuggets come into this game off back to back upset wins to defeat the Clippers in seven games. Unfortunately for Denver, NBA teams off back to back upset wins have only cashed the opening game of a series eight of 29 games since 1991. That doesn't bode well for Denver. Nor does the fact that LeBron James' teams have gone 50-27 ATS in his career when they were favored by 2+ points, provided they were not leading in the series. Finally, teams off back to back playoff wins have only covered 24 of 63 games if they were an underdog away from home, and they were off back to back covers by 10+ points. Take Los Angeles minus the points in Game 1. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
