The Los Angeles Lakers look like a struggling basketball team right now. They are 9-10 after losing to the Knicks last night, and travels to Indiana to take on the Pacers tonight. Los Angeles will get LeBron James back tonight, and that will obviously be a huge boost. 

Indiana is playing well right now and is trying to fight its way back to .500. The Pacers are one of the more puzzling teams in the league and can surprise any team on any night. Will they catch Los Angeles hurting and send the Lakers to 9-11?

Here are the odds for the matchup via WynnBET.

Lakers vs. Pacers Prediction and Pick

Maybe I’m still giving the Lakers too much credit, but I don't see them losing tonight with LeBron back in the lineup. Anthony Davis has looked good in the last few games, scoring 30 multiple times. If he can outduel Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner down low, the Lakers will have a great chance at winning this game.

Indiana is coming off a huge win against the Chicago Bulls. While the Pacers look like they are moving in the right direction, they have been inconsistent all season long and tonight is one of those spots in my eyes. The Pacers haven’t won three games in a row all season long and the Lakers are desperate to get a win. With LeBron James back in the lineup, I think the Lakers get back to .500 tonight.

Pick: Lakers moneyline (+145)
