#581 Los Angeles Lakers + (8:00 est) TNT
This is about embarrassment. LeBron and the Lakers were embarrassed in their last game losing by 42 points to the injury depleted Pacers. That was LeBron's worst loss in his career and he did not like that. Look for a big effort here from the Lakers and they are in a great spot since they have covered 8 of their last 11 against the Celtics and they are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 Thursday night games. The Celtics are good at home but they are just 3-4 ATS in their last 7 at home and they are a bit of a mess right now with the uncertainty of Kyrie for next season. Take the Lakers here.
4* Dallas Stars - Nashville Predators UNDER 5.5 -110 (8:00 est)
The Stars have been a great under team lately (except for their last game) but look for them to get back on the under track here. Dallas is 1-12 to the under in road games with a total of 5.5 and they are 4-12 to the under in games after scoring 4 or more goals. Nashville is 4-8 to the under in divisional games and 8-14 to the under in games after scoring 4 or more goals. Play this under here to win with Jimmy.
