warriorsLos Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors

When: Wednesday, November 23

Time: 10:30 p.m. EST

The Golden State Warriors enter Wednesday night’s matchup versus the Los Angeles Lakers with an NBA-best eight-game winning streak.  The Warriors have been the most dominant team in basketball since their opening night debacle against the Spurs, and lead the league in scoring, averaging 117.1 points per contest.  The Lakers aren’t far behind Golden State offensively, ranking third in scoring with 109.8 points per game.

Betting Trends:

The Lakers:

  • 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall
  • 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State

The Warriors:

  • 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest
  • 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games

The Los Angeles Lakers dominated the first matchup between these two teams, winning by a whopping 20 points.  The Lakers turned over Golden State 20 times and held Stephen Curry scoreless from behind the three-point line.  If Los Angeles can do that again, expect much of the same.  However, I don’t see any way for history to repeat itself, as Golden State is just too hot and playing at another level.  These two teams face off again on Friday, so whoever wins this contest will go into that matchup with the momentum.

Our Pick: Golden State Warriors
