Oh, oddsmakers… When will you learn? The Lakers have been one of the worst ATS teams in the league this year at 18-25-1, and it feels like every single time they get on a bit of a roll and everyone thinks that it is going to win 10 in a row, it loses a game like this one. Sure, LA has played well in back to back games against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Utah Jazz, but all of that is going to come to a close in this one. The Hornets are 8-4 SU and 9-3 ATS over the course of their last 12 games, all but one of which have come with G Eric Gordon back in the lineup. The Hornets really don’t have that superstar yet to lead the team to the next level, but they are playing good team basketball, exactly what tends to frustrate the heck out of the Lakers. Oh sure, on any given night, G Kobe Bryant could go off for 40 points and put LA on his back to carry the team to victory, but that just isn’t happening often enough for our tastes. It’s not Bryant’s fault; the supporting cast around him just isn’t all that great. Take the points on Tuesday, but expect an outright upset.
