(NBA) LA Lakers vs. Washington, 12/04/2022 6:00 PM, Score: 130 - 119
Total: 233.50 | -106.00 Under
Result: Loss
This is a 10* TOTAL BLOCKBUSTER on the UNDER Lakers/Wizards.

Scoring is up around the NBA, but I think this particular total is just a little too high.

The Lakers are playing better, as they're now 9-12. They're coming off a high-scoring 133-129 upset at Milwaukee as 8.5-point underdogs, and with a date at Cleveland up next, I think "The King" and company will get caught "looking ahead."

Washington will be looking to slow things down. The Wizards are off a tight 117-116 loss at Charlotte as 4-point favorites, but note that they've seen the total go UNDER the number in four of their last five after a SU/ATS loss as a favorite.

Expect a less intense offensive game to lead to a lower-scoring outcome. The play is the UNDER.

Good luck, NP
