Golden State vs. Los Angeles
Monday 01/18 10:05 PM Eastern
2 units on Golden State +9 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
Golden State has been off since Thursday so it has had time to prepare for the red-hot Lakers, who have won five in a row. The teams have split the last eight meetings both straight up and ATS. Los Angeles has not had much success on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day losing the last three years by a combined 60 points, including 130-111 to the Warriors in 2019 when Klay Thompson poured in 44 points. Stephen Curry is heating up scoring 35 points at Denver, but he needs to get more help from his teammates. The Lakers are 7-15 ATS their last 22 Monday games overall and this is a big number to cover against Golden State, which has won six of its last 10 games. Take the Warriors as a Max Play.
