The Los Angeles Lakers hit the road and travel to Denver to take on the Nuggets at the Ball Arena on Wednesday night. These teams met 3 times last season and the Nuggets led 2-1.

The Nuggets get here with a 2-2 record after losing 135-110 on the road against the Blazers. Aaron Gordon scored 26 for the Nuggets (2-2). Nikola Jokic, who had consecutive triple-doubles in Denver's previous two games, got into foul trouble and finished with nine points, nine rebounds and nine assists.

Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers have had a disapointing start of the season as they have lost their first 3 games. In their last game they lost 106-104 against the Blazers where James had 31 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, while Davis finished with 22 points, 10 rebounds and six blocked shots for the Lakers.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Denver's last 12 games.

Denver are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

Denver are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against LA Lakers.

The total has gone OVER in 11 of LA Lakers' last 15 games against Denver.

LA Lakers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Lakers' last 5 games.

LA Lakers are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games.

 

Prediction

The Nuggets have been great offensively and are scoring an average of 114 points per game but they have struggled on the road against the Lakers . The Lakers have been awful offensively averaging only 102 points per game and haven't win a game yet and what could be one of the worst starts of the season ever. Honestly I don't get this spread, the Nuggets have been by far a better team so far which is confusing so I think the best play is the over. The over has cashed in 11 of the last 15 head to head games. 

PICK: Over 229.5 (-110)
