Lakers vs. Nets NBA Prediction

Lakers vs. Nets, 1/25/22 NBA Predictions & betting Odds

The Lakers and Nets will square off on TNT Tuesday night in Brooklyn, where the Nets are currently slight home underdogs. Given the Lakers’ road issues, are they a poor bet to cover as road chalk tonight?

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

Anthony Davis (left knee) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game in Brooklyn. In L.A., "probable" typically means "will play," so it looks like AD will be back in action tomorrow night following a month-long layoff. He'll likely have a minutes limit upon his return, but Dwight Howard or Trevor Ariza figure to shift back to the second unit and Carmelo Anthony's minutes will dip. The Lakers play four times in Week 15, but two comes as a back-to-back, so AD may only be available for three of the four games this week.

Brooklyn Nets DFS Notes

Patty Mills hit 8-of-15 shots for 21 points, three rebounds, one assist, five triples and one turnover across 33 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Timberwolves. Mills was held to just nine points on 4-of-11 shooting (1-of-4 from 3) his last time out, but he was hot to start tonight’s game, putting in a quick seven points on four shots in his first five minutes of play. As per usual, he didn’t bring much to the box score outside of those points and triples, but managers know what they’re getting with Mills.

Warriors vs. Suns NBA Betting Prediction

The Lakers are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against the Nets, but are 14-4-3 against the number in their last 21 games in Brooklyn. I think the better play is the under, which is 12-3 in the last 15 meetings between these two teams at Barclays Center, is 23-11-1 in the Lakers’ last 35 games as a road favorite and is 4-1-1 in the Nets’ last six games as a home dog.
