This is one of those games where you really wish the Golden State Warriors weren’t the unluckiest team in the NBA this season. They face the Lakers at home after making several moves at the trade deadline, including trading for Timberwolves guard Andrew Wiggins.

Can they be competitive against the top team in the Western Conference?  Our experts detail their betting strategies for tonight’s matchup below.

Betting Trend to Know

The Lakers (38-12) are 14-point favorites at the Warriors (12-40). Historically, bad teams like Golden State that have won 25% or less of their games have been good bets against great teams (won at least 70% of games).

Since 2005, bad teams like the Warriors in this situation have gone 336-266-10 (56%) against the spread. Double-digit home underdogs in this scenario are an even better 51-31 (62%) ATS. — John Ewing
