Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: New York. As of Sunday morning, 57 percent of public bets have been placed on the Knicks.

Injury Report: New York does not have anyone listed on its injury report. For the Lakers, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed the last game with an Achilles tendon strain and is questionable today. Brandon Ingram missed the last game with an ankle sprain and it is unknown whether he will play today. Lonzo Ball has missed the last three games with a knee strain and will sit out again today.

Who the Trends Like: The Knicks are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings. The over is 6-0 in the last six New York games overall. Los Angeles is 4-0 ATS in its last four home games.

Who We Like: The last time these two teams met, New York squeaked out a 113-109 home overtime victory on Dec. 12. Look for the Lakers to get their revenge here. Ball being out hurts and the presence of Ingram would help a tremendous deal, but I believe the combination of the home-court advantage and the early start time help offset that. Los Angeles has won its last four home games including a 99-86 triumph over the Pacers its last contest with Ball out of the lineup. I don't trust the inconsistent Knicks here as favorites.
