As dominant as the Los Angeles Lakers have been this season, they actually have more losses at home (6) than on the road (5). They welcome the scrappy San Antonio Spurs into Staples Center on Tuesday and are double-digit favorites.

Will the Lakers cover this huge number? Our NBA crew previews how they plan to bet the matchup below.

Betting Trend to Know

Lakers opened as 12-point favorites against the Spurs. LA is 7-9-1 against the spread as double-digit favorites this season. San Antonio is 2-0 ATS as a double-digit dog in 2019-20 John Ewing

Bryan Mears: An Intriguing Over/Under

This line seems a bit surprising. The Lakers are 12-point favorites at home against the Spurs, who have been pretty solid lately. In their last three games, they beat a good Jazz team, blew out the Hornets and then barely lost to the Clippers at full strength on the road.

Over the past two weeks, they have a +2.6 Net Rating despite dealing with some injury concerns. Meanwhile, the Lakers are at just a +4.6 mark and have lost two of their last three.

That said … the Lakers are just a really tough matchup for the Spurs. They blitz the rim with their size — playing all three of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and JaVale McGee/Dwight Howard at the same time is a tall task for any defense. And the Spurs have been bad protecting the rim this season, ranking in the bottom-10 in that regard.
