Los Angeles Clippers vs Los Angeles Lakers Odds, Prediction, and Pick
When it comes to anticipated NBA match-ups, this one is probably one of the most interesting out there. The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers may play in the same building when scheduled for home games, but every once in a while these two teams get to play against each other on both of their home courts. This is the situation that we have on Wednesday, January 25th at 10:30pm EST as the Lakers are considered the "home team" against their hometown counter part. Both teams have looked incredibly strong this year, and both of them have strong home records. You can't really factor in the home record part to this one though, which will make the game even more interesting. Los Angeles is the home to some of the biggest movie stars and sports stars on the planet, and this is especially true for the NBA.

When you look at these two teams, you see lineups that include players like Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Andrew Bynum for the Lakers, and Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Caron Butler, and Chauncey Billups for the Clippers. These teams definitely have to be projected as top five teams come playoff time for the Western Conference, and that makes these in divisional games so important for both teams. It'll be tough to choose a winner in this one, but I know that all of the NBA fans and sports bettors out there will have their eyes locked in on this match-up on Wednesday.

These two teams matched up twice in the preseason, which both resulted in wins for the Clippers. The two then met once again earlier this month on January 14th, and it ended in the same fashion as the first two did, with a win going to the Clippers. But I just feel something different coming from this Lakers team this time. It will be a pro-Lakers crowd, as they are the home team, so their season ticket holders will be there, and they also have one of the best players on the planet in Kobe Bryant. Bryant won't be prepared to roll over and let the Clippers take over LA, so I think that the Lakers are going to get the job done on Wednesday night. I'll take the Lakers to win it by six.

It won't be easy for the Lakers on Wednesday, but with the combination of their big three in Bryant, Bynum, and Gasol, they will come out with quite a bit of momentum and ready to pull off the big win.
Pick: Los Angeles Lakers -3.5
