Dallas Mavericks vs Los Angeles Lakers Betting Picks
Online bookmakers are going to pay extra attention to this game, which will feature two of the best all-around players in the game: LeBron James and his heir apparent Luka Doncic.
Moneyline: The Lakers are 3-0 in the last three games against the Mavs and 9-1 at Staples Center. Defensively, Los Angeles has become a lot better team during their 10-game winning streak, and I believe their ability to limit opponents’ scoring opportunities will be the key to stopping Doncic and the Mavs on their home floor.
ATS: I am anticipating a tight contest through the first three-and-half quarters. However, in the end, I see James and Davis making the difference in the last five minutes, helping their team pull away by at least eight points. The Lakers will cover the 6.5 spread.
TOTALs: The total opened at 222.5 points. The last time these two teams played each other, they combined for 117 points. The Mavericks have been dynamic on the offensive end lately, but I have a big trust in the Lakers’ defense. I pick UNDER.
Score Prediction: 110-98 Lakers
