The Los Angeles Lakers (15-20) are still searching for their first win in the month of January, which can't be ignored when making your NBA picks against the spread (ATS) on Friday night, as they prepare to host the Oklahoma City Thunder (27-8) at the Staples Center.

Sports bettors will find that the Lakers are 5.5-point road underdogs in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total has risen two points to settle in at 217 in the market.

Kobe Bryant is leading the league in averaging 30.1 points per game, but the Lakers have dropped all five of their games in 2013.

Let's take a closer look at this Western Conference matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a pro basketball pick along the way.
