Who Public Bettors Like: Golden State. As of this writing, the Warriors are receiving 69% of the tickets at the betting window.

Injury Report: Stephen Curry is questionable with a hand injury tonight for the Warriors, as is Kevin Durant, who is dealing with an ankle injury. On the other side, the Lakers are relatively healthy and as of this writing do not have a player listed on their injury report.

OUR PREDICTION: The Warriors have covered the spread in six of their last eight games against the Lakers, are 6-2 against the number in their last eight western conference games, and are 14-5 at the betting window in their last 19 road games versus a team with a winning home record.

On the other side, the Lakers are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games overall, are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, and have failed to win at the betting window in five of their last seven Pacific games.
