I'm recommending a play on the Lakers minus the points on Tuesday night. Los Angeles draws the worst shooting team in the NBA when the Bulls visit Staples Center. Chicago is making just 41% of their FGA and must find a way to "keep up" with the high scoring Lakers. Los Angeles fills the basket at home, averaging 115.5 ppg in their last six home games. They're +39 on the glass in those outings and have connected on 47.8% of their FGA. Stretch that over the course of the season and the Lakers would be 5th in the league in shooting accuracy. That's scary news for a Bulls' team that has allowed their hosts to make 48% of their FGA and have seen their last five opponents make more than 50% of their shots. The Lakers have won and covered 4 of their last 6 home games and we'll back them here. I'm laying the points with the Lakers on Tuesday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
1* Free Play on the LA Lakers (10:35 EST).
Both teams have been poor this year. The Bulls come in off a 113-105 loss in Phoenix on Sunday, while LA broke its two game slide with a convincing 127-109 home win over the Nuggets in its latest action.
Chicago simply can’t score, as the Bulls come in averaging only 95.5 PPG. The defense has been decent in conceding only 104.9 per contest. Lauri Markkanen leads the team with 15.6 points plus 4.5 boards per game.
LA averages 105.6 points and concedes 107.5. Brook Lopez is the main man for the Lakers, posting 15.4 points, plus 4.8 boards per game. Rookie Lonzo Ball averages 8.9 points, 7.1 boards and 7.1 assists per game.
I’ll point out though that Chicago is 0-4 ATS in its last four after allowing 100 points or more in its previous contest, while LA is interrestingly 2-1 ATS in its last three after scoring 125 points or more in its previous contest.
I have a hard time seeing the Bulls matching pace down the stretch. Consider laying the points with the Lakers in this matchup.
