The Los Angeles Lakers have not started the season well on the court or at the betting window with the team posting a 0-2 SU and ATS record so far this season. Things may not get better for the Lakers as they host the Dallas Mavericks Sunday, with LA going just 5-12 ATS in their past 17 at the Staples Center against the Mavs.
- The OVER is 10-3 in the Mavericks past 13 games.
- The Lakers are 0-5 SU and ATS in their past five.
- The Mavericks averaged 115.5 points per game against the Lakers last season.
Through two games this season the Lakers have allowed a league-high 244 points, the most the team has allowed in the opening two games since 266 in 1982-83. The Lakers have been all offense and no defense this season as they have averaged 112.5 points per game and five of their players are averaging double-digit points.
The Mavericks have dominated the Lakers, winning their past seven games between the two teams, but will hope for some manpower on the court. The Mavs are already dealing with injury issues with Deron Williams, Wesley Matthews, Chandler Parson and Javale McGee all sitting out their last game
