Point Spread: +7½/-105 Denver

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Win

Play Denver Nuggets +7.5

This is a tough spot for the Lakers. This is their first home game after a five game road trip. Prior to that long trip the Lakers play a three game road trip then returned home for a one game before hitting that five game east coast trip. They have played 13 of 16 on the road and this could be a flat spot for LA facing a good Nuggets team. Lakers have failed to cover four straight dropping the final two straight at up Milwaukee and Indiana. Past five games Lakers averaging only 103.2 points per game. That is nearly 10 points below overall average which could point to some scheduling fatigue. The Clippers are next for the Lakers on Christmas Day following this home spot against the Nuggets. Denver hits the road after winning five straight at home. Kyle Kuzma is questionable for LA. Nuggets sit second in the NBA defensive efficiency ratings allowing 103.3 points per 100 possessions. Just too many points.

Play Denver +7.5.
