BETTING TRENDS

Brooklyn are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games at home.Lakers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games and 2-5 in their last seven games against the Nets.

Prediction

The Lakers will be as healthy as they’ve been in quite some time, even more if they got AD back, while the Brooklyn Nets will be without Durant due to injury and Kyrie because it’s a home game. Nets have struggled defensively so expect them to have a hard time slowing the Lakers.
