The 4-7 Minnesota Timberwolves travel to Los Angeles to face the 4-6 Lakers. It’s a matchup between two of the most dysfunctional teams in the league. What could go wrong?

Can the Wolves come together for a much-needed road win, or will LeBron James and Co. take care of business? Our analysts discuss.

Betting Trends to Know

Non-playoff teams from 2017-18 have gone 42-35-2 (55%) against the spread when playing postseason participants from last season. The Lakers are 1-6 straight-up and ATS in this scenario.

The Lakers lost to the Raptors, 121-107, on Sunday. Bettors assume that a team featuring LeBron will bounce back after a blowout loss, but they have been wrong.

Since the 2014-15 season, LeBron’s teams have gone 17-39 ATS following a loss of 10 or more points in the regular season. John Ewing
