Warriors vs. Lakers Prediction & Pick: Game 4
This game has now featured back-to-back blowouts as the Warriors won by 27 in Game 2 and the Lakers won by 30 in Game 3. LA has a chance to make a statement by going up 3-1 in the series, and I like its chances of doing just that as it has won six of its last seven home games against Golden State.
The Warriors have also lost eight of their last 10 games as underdogs, while the Lakers have won seven straight games inside Crypto.com Arena. In fact, LA’s four home wins during this postseason run have come by an average of 21.5 points. Head coach Dervin Ham’s team is not messing around.
It’s worth pointing out the Warriors have been one of the NBA’s worst road teams this season, too. After posting an 11-30 away record during the regular season, Golden State has lost three of its five road games in the playoffs and has seen a major dip in production when away from the Chase Center.
LAKERS vs. WARRIORS FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: Lakers 119, Warriors 112
Game 4 Golden State Warriors vs. LA Lakers Best Bet
Fading a Warriors team that has won four NBA titles in the last eight years is not easy, but keep in mind that Golden State is 5-15 against the spread in its last 20 away games. It is also 1-5 ATS in its last six games against LA and has not won inside Crypto.com Arena since October of 2021.
On the other side, the Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a favorite. Game 1 was the only close contest of this series so far and LA still emerged victorious by a five-point margin, so opting to take the spread instead of the moneyline is a safe move.
