(503) L.A. Lakers vs. L.A. Clippers (504)
PICK: pinnacle @ 2.5 LAL (-107)
DATE: March 8, 2020 - 3:30 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Al McMordie
EVALUATION: Win (1000) - Final Score LAC 103 at LAL 112
At 3:35 pm, our selection is on the Los Angeles Lakers + the points over the Los Angeles Clippers. The NBA couldn't be happier that the two best Western Conference teams both reside in Los Angeles, as this budding rivalry should provide great entertainment in late May. The Lakers have been installed as an underdog in this game, notwithstanding the fact they have won 10 of 11 games, own the conference's best record, and just beat Milwaukee, the league's #1 team. The only thing not on the Lakers' regular season resume is a win over the rival Clippers, as the Lakers lost the first two meetings of the season. We'll grab the points, as LeBron James' teams have gone 52-36 ATS when playing with double-revenge vs. a division foe. Meanwhile, the Clippers are an awful 59-109-4 ATS vs. .589 (or better) foes playing with double-revenge, including 11-31 ATS as a favorite! Finally, the Lakers are 11-5 straight-up, and 13-3 ATS their last 16 as underdogs. Take the Lakers + the points. 10* PLAY. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
