Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers are on their third game on their NBA Eastern Conference road trip. It has been tough as they suffered a tough loss against rivals Boston Celtics for their worst loss of the season. As they try to pick up the pieces once again, trade talks surround the team with Kyle Kuzma being the centerpiece of the rumors. Still, Kuzma has been solid for the team but they need more from Anthony Davis and prove to the entire league that he deserves to be part of the MVP talks.

The Brooklyn Nets have suffered their fourth straight loss and the last one was in the hands of the Philadelphia 76ers in their own court. Kyrie Irving skipped this game and Spencer Dinwiddie had 22 points, seven rebounds and three rebounds. Jarrett Allen had a double-double with 13 points and 13 boards while Taurean Prince contributed with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Against the Lakers, even if Kyrie Irving decides to play, this is going to be another long night as James or Davis is too much for the Nets to handle.
