The Pick: LA to win at -275 (4/11) (Unibet)
The final game of a 10-game NBA schedule on Wednesday will feature the San Antonio Spurs. With just a 5-16 road record this season, the Spurs will be looking for a win as visitors when they face the LA Lakers (start time of 7:30 PM PT).
The big news heading into this game is that it’s possible that Anthony Davis might make his return. Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reported late on Tuesday that Davis might return for Wednesday’s game.
The Spurs are heading into the game as large underdogs, with the spread set at +6.5 (Unibet). With or without Davis, the Lakers are moneyline value in this contest at -275.
Spurs @ Lakers – NBA: Game at a Glance
- San Antonio 14-33 overall: +6.5 (Unibet)
- Spurs' moneyline betting odds: +220
- LA 22-26 overall: -6.5 (Unibet)
- Lakers' moneyline betting odds: -275
- Game time: Wednesday, January 25th, 2023 @ 7:30 PM PT
The San Antonio Spurs will enter the game with an overall record of 14-33 on the season. One trend that goes against them in this game is that they are just 5-15 on the moneyline for their backers in their last 20 games. That right there is a great reason to oppose them at -275 (4/11) against any team that might be considered “average” in the NBA. The Lakers fit that bill from a lot of perspectives.
San Antonio Spurs: Recent Form Alert
- San Antonio Spurs were 9-18 (December 13th, 2022)
- Heading into this game they are 14-33
- San Antonio is just 5-15 in their last 20 games
The LA Lakers are 22-26 on the season. They are pretty average when hosting as they have just a 12-12 record when playing at home. But LA has been trending in the right direction for the last little while. A month ago, they were seven games below .500 and now they are just four games below .500. They are creeping back to an even record and a successful return from Davis should help that a lot.
LA should be considered about -550 (2/11) favorites in this game against one of the weakest teams in the NBA. Our recommendation is to take the Lakers to win this one at -275. If Davis plays well, then this one won’t be close, however, bettors need not rely on him. LA is good to go without Davis as well.
