NBA Predictions: Los Angeles Lakers @ San Antonio Spurs
Date: Wednesday, January 9th, 8:00 ET
Location: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
NBA Betting Odds: San Antonio -13.5
Lakers vs. Spurs NBA TV Schedule: ESPN
This is a whole heck of a lot of points that the oddsmakers are giving the Lakers tonight. You might think that this is an anomaly, but with all of the Lakers that are out of the lineup for the next week, it’s tough to see any way that they can come on the road and win this game. On top of that, three of the last four meetings have been decided by at least 14 points, and nine of the last 10 have been decided by at least nine points. It’s tough to think that all of a sudden, this is going to be another wickedly close game as we saw way back at the beginning of the campaign. San Antonio has been playing suspect basketball of late, losing to both the New York Knicks (by 17) and the New Orleans Hornets (by seven), but both of those games were on the road. Teams that have been coming to the AT&T Center have been getting destroyed of late, and this is a far worse Los Angeles team in this form than we are used to seeing. It’s tough to want to lay two touchdowns, but after last night’s showing in the middle quarters by the Lakers, we can’t see this one being close.
