NBA Betting Online Odds:
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors enter tonight’s Western Conference pairing sporting a 32-14 record that ranks them No. 1 in the Pacific Division. And in the West, it’s no surprise to see that Golden State reigns supreme as well. As for tonight’s matchup, the Warriors have no worries about taking on the banged up Lakers, especially since DeMarcus Cousins is off their own IR. LA on the other hand, will have to contend with a lineup devoid of LeBron James, Rajon Rondo and even old Lonzo Ball. With that in mind, it’s beyond obvious that the Warriors will be emerging triumphant this Monday night.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (29.8 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 5.4 apg), Kevin Durant (28.1 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 6.0 apg), and Klay Thompson (21.6 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.0 apg).
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers are in a bit of a rut. Right now they’re sitting at 25-22 and are more than likely headed for another loss this evening. Recently the Lakers suffered a 138-134 loss to Houston. Now they have to face an even tougher team with less talent in the starting lineup. Considering that the Lakers are 7-3 in their last 10 meetings against the Warriors, it’s pretty evident that they stand no chance at an upset this Monday night. The odds are pegging Los Angeles as a heavy underdog this evening despite being at home. But what’s most interesting is the 11 and a half point spread they’re facing. Right now the Lakers are averaging 112.4 per game while the Warriors are putting up 118.5. However, seeing as how the Warriors have put up more than 140 points in three of their last 6 games, it stands to reason that they’ll be able to cover that large spread tonight.
Players to Watch: LeBron James (27.3 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 7.1 apg), Kyle Kuzma (19.3 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 2.4 apg), and Brandon Ingram (16.3 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 2.9 apg).
