NBA FREE PICK: Lakers -7

LA Lakers vs. Washington, 03/07/2012 19:00
Point Spread: -7/-108 LA Lakers

The Lakers have gone from an 8-point favorite down to just a 7-point favorite against the Wizards tonight. Los Angeles suffered a tough overtime loss at Detroit last night, but that actually adds value to taking the Lakers tonight. Los Angeles hasn't lost consecutive games since the beginning of February.

The Pistons are a better team than their record indicates, but that is not the case for the Wizards. Washington has just one win over their last eight games, and six of those losses have come by at least 7-points. Washington looks good getting 7-points at home, but they are just 6-14 ATS in home games this season and are only 4-13 ATS after having lost 3 of their last 4 games this season.

Los Angeles failed to cover the spread as a favorite last night, but they are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of less than .400. BET THE LAKERS!
