Cash For Gold

After losing Kobe Bryant for most of the season this year, the Lakers have tanked in the standings, dropping to 16-27 in games thru 1/23.

However, it's been more like cash for gold for Laker backers in underdog roles this season with L.A. going 21-13-2 ATS when taking points.

That's a stark comparison to the dismal 21-39 ATS mark the Lakers compiled as underdogs the previous two seasons.

Best role this season for the surfer dudes: 11-1 ATS as dogs in non-conference games.

Stat Of The Week

The San Antonio Spurs are 12-1 ATS away in games after facing the Miami Heat. (Tuesday, 1/28).
