With a 1 ½ game lead over the second-seeded Denver Nuggets, the Warriors can definitely bolster their standing before the playoffs kick off. As for tonight’s matchup, the Warriors shouldn’t have too tough of a time picking up another win over the Lakers.

And despite playing on the road, the Warriors should have more than enough momentum to take care of the lowly Lakers. Tonight’s basketball betting online odds are clearly pegging Golden State as a massive favorite, which was to be expected. All things considered, there’s no value in taking the Warriors straight up here. Alternatively, you can take the OVER on the TOTALs tonight for some good value.
