Los Angeles blew a late lead on Monday and lost to Golden State, snapping a five-game winning streak, but the Lakers haven't lost two in a row all season and they'll be focused for this one. Milwaukee also comes off a loss that broke a four-game winning streak, as Brooklyn pulled out a 125-123 victory over the Bucks, who shot only 43.8 percent. The Lakers are 11-2 ATS their last 13 games as underdogs, including 5-1 ATS on the road. Also, the Lakers have covered four of their last five road games and they are 5-2-1 ATS following a loss dating to last season. Milwaukee has not been a moneymaker against the elite teams this season with an 0-4 ATS record versus teams with a .600 or better winning percentage. The Lakers are 10-3 UNDER their last 13 games overall and 9-1 UNDER their last 10 road games. Milwaukee has gone UNDER four of its last five games. Take the Lakers and the UNDER.
