The Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers meet Monday in NBA action at the Staples Center.

The Los Angeles Clippers look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 113.9 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Lou Williams is averaging 19.8 points and 5.4 assists while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18.8 points and 5.9 rebounds. Montrezl Harrell is the third double-digit scorer and Landry Shamet is grabbing 1.8 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 37.9 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have split their last 10 road games.

The Los Angeles Lakers could use a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 112.4 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 113.9 points on 45.2 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 27 points and 8.1 assists while Kyle Kuzma is averaging 18.9 points and 5.6 rebounds. Brandon Ingram is the third double-digit scorer and Reggie Bullock is grabbing three rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 69 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.5 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Lakers have split their last eight home games.

The Clippers are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Lakers are 17-35 ATS in their last 52 Monday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Clippers are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and the road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 34-16-1 in Lakers last 51 home games. The under is 13-4 in Clippers last 17 road games.

We're getting free points with the better team in the Los Angeles Clippers, and we should probably take them given the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers seem to be reaching a new low every time they take the court and their chances of making the playoffs is getting bleaker by the day. With that said, the Los Angeles Clippers are on the end of a back to back and are just 9-13 ATS this season when an underdog of five or less points. The Lakers also play decent basketball at home and put up an honest effort against the Milwaukee Bucks a few days ago. I'll give the Lakers one more chance. It's the last one.

Pick:
L.A. Lakers -4
