There is one pick tonight.
LA Lakers +13 spread against Golden State Warriors for 3% of the bankroll.
This is a matchup where we simply feel that the Golden State Warriors are being somewhat over-valued, while the hometown Lakers are being under-valued and that creates a tremendous opportunity in this contest.
Yes, the Warriors just welcomed Boogie Cousins back to the rotation and while that makes them even more of a threat in the Western Conference, his addition to the rotation could also affect the chemistry of this team. There is only so much ball to go around and Cousins is another big mouth to feed. It will be interesting to see how him returning to the rotation once fully healthy, ultimately effect this team.
The Lakers meanwhile should be no pushovers at in this contest, especially at home. LA has been playing some solid basketball recently, coming away with an outright victory in Oklahoma City and taking Houston to overtime before eventually falling by 4 points. This is a team that (at times) has shown a lot of heart. They are young and talented and shouldn't be intimidated by the Warriors in this matchup.
Golden State is on an impressive 7-game win streak and certainly have the ability to blow the doors off of any team on a given night. This is a revenge game for the Warriors after the Lakers beat them soundly at Oracle on Christmas Night, however, we don't believe it will be the blowout that the oddsmakers are expecting. LA has already taken the Warriors down on the road, and while they likely won't make it back-to-back against the defending champs, they should at least keep this game respectable, which places a lot of value on the points.
