LA Lakers are 6-12 ATS in their last 18 games.
LA Lakers are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games at home.
The Lakers are in do-or-die territory here and they are hoping that Lebron and Davis suit up and play tonight. They have lost the last 2 games against the Pelicans this season and have failed to cover the spread in 12 of their last 18 games. The Pelicans are still in danger to lose the play-in game so they'll also fight with everything tonight. As long as Lebron plays I think the Lakers can win this game at home.
