Los Angeles beat them 123-92 on Sunday and then again on Friday 105-94. The Friday victory was their first road win all season. Now they get them a third time on Saturday, so will the trends continue? 

San Antonio started the season with a 5-2 record but has since dropped to 6-14. They’ve currently lost seven straight games and are showing no sign of climbing back up the rankings. Will they get their revenge on the Lakers or will Los Angeles make it a hat trick of wins? 

Lakers vs. Spurs NBA Betting Odds

The Lakers have covered four straight against a team with a losing record. They are also 4-1 ATS in their past five games overall. However, they are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games on the road against teams with a losing home record on the season. 

San Antonio is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games played at home this season but have failed to cover in five straight overall. They are also 0-4 ATS in their past four when coming off an ATS loss in the previous matchup. 

Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers have looked significantly better of late due to the improved play of both Anthony Davis and Lonnie Walker. Davis, in particular, has led the team in scoring for the past six games. As for Walker, he’s putting up career-high numbers in points at 16.9, field goal percentage at 47.1, free throw percentage at 83.7, steals at 0.9, and blocks at 0.5. These two guys have been critical for a current Lakers resurgence as they try to right the ship after a brutal start to the season.

LeBron James is also back in the lineup after he missed a handful of games due to an injury. He returned against the Spurs on Friday night and helped propel the team to a win. A potential downside here is that Patrick Beverley is not going to be available. He got suspended over his shove on Deandre Ayton. That means an already frail Lakers defense will be without one of their best stoppers.

San Antonio Spurs

San Antonio’s slow start doomed them on Friday.  They trailed by 12 after the first quarter and 18 at the half. They clawed back into the game but just ran out of gas down the stretch. 

Shooting has been way off for this squad as they shot two for 19 from behind the arc in the early portion of the game. They ended that loss against Los Angeles by making just six out of their 33 total three-point attempts. If they are hoping to get their revenge this time around, the three-point shooting desperately needs to improve. Don’t expect much change, though, as they are one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the league (ranking 20th). 

That lack of a consistent three-ball has contributed to them being dead-last in point differential. They are sitting in 30th at -10.7. This group still has some offensive talent but the lack of an offensive star is just becoming unbelievably apparent.
