The Los Angeles Lakers will look to end a losing skid, which is the best they can do right now. But that’s going to be easier said than done against the Golden State Warriors. Check out our preview below of this Lakers-Warriors NBA game.
Betting Preview for the Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors NBA Regular Season Game on April 7, 2022
Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
When: Thursday, April 7, 2022, 10:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: ESPN
Betting on the Los Angeles Lakers (+12.5)
Regular Season Record: 31-48
The Lakers have nothing to play for but pride. They are out of the playoffs and play-in tournament contention, which means the questionable tags on Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis are as good as “out.” That also means that the likes of DJ Augustin, Malik Monk, and Talen Horton-Tucker will mostly be running the show this Thursday for the Lakers, who are coming off a 121-110 road loss to the Phoenix Suns last Tuesday. The Lakers have lost all their last seven games. They won the last time they met Golden State (124-116 at home) early last March, but they did have a healthy LeBron James around. If anything, the Lakers are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 road games versus teams with winning records at home.
The Lakers are also 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games opposite teams with a winning overall record.
Betting on the Golden State Warriors (-12.5)
Regular Season Record: 50-29
Things are much, much better for the Warriors than the Lakers. Golden State has turned a corner after a four-game losing skid, as it’s now on a mini two-game win streak, having defeated the Utah Jazz (111-107 at home) last Saturday and the Sacramento Kings (109-90 on the road) last Sunday. The Warriors are currently operating without the injured Stephen Curry, but they have enough firepower to take care of business against the imploding Lakers. Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins both have had good games of late. Thompson dropped 36 points on the Jazz, while Wiggins scored 25 points in the Sacramento game. With the state the Lakers are currently in, it’s not hard to imagine the Warriors scoring a blowout in this contest.
The Warriors are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last 6 after at least three full days of rest.
The Warriors win, 117-104.
