Los Angeles is now 2-8 in its last 10 games after blowing a 10-point lead against the Wizards heading into the fourth quarter two nights ago. Not only did the Lakers blow that lead in the fourth by only scoring 13 points, they failed to cover as a 9-point home underdog. In clear tank mode, the Lakers are just 4-6 against the spread in their last 10 games.

Minnesota enters play in a bit of a funk as well, losing seven of its last 10 games overall and going 3-7 against the spread during that stretch. The Timberwolves are 34-39 at the betting window on the season but are 19-18 against the number at home this year.

The over is also 6-2 in the Timberwolves' last eight games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games when playing on one day of rest, and is a perfect 6-0 in their last six games versus a team with a losing record. On the other side, the over has cashed in nine of the Lakers' last 11 games, is 4-0 in their last four road games, and is 6-0 in their last six games when they take on an opponent with a losing record.
