Los Angeles Lakers Betting
After spending the last six years outside the playoff picture, the Lakers seem poised to top the Western Conference and go for a deep playoff run next spring. Anthony Davis and LeBron James have been a two-man wrecking machine, accounting for almost half of the Lakers points per game. Of course, the revelation for the purple-and-gold so far is the terrific play of oft-injured center Dwight Howard, who is averaging 6.8 points and 8.2 rebounds in six games.
Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (28.5 PPG, 11.7 RPG, 2.7 APG), LeBron James (25.5 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 11.2 APG), Danny Green (11.2 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 0.8 APG)
Chicago Bulls Betting
The Bulls were supposed to contend for a playoff spot this season. But after seven games, this year’s squad looks headed to the lottery once again. Head coach Jim Boylen and star guard Zach Lavine have voiced out their frustrations, but none of their sentiments can help fix an anemic offense that ranks 22nd in the league at 105 points per game.
Players to Watch: Zach LaVine (21.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 3.6 APG), Lauri Markkanen (16.0 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 2.1 APG), Wendell Carter, Jr. (14.6 PPG, 9.4 RPG, 0.9 APG)

Los Angeles Lakers vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks
The Lakers dodged a bullet as Avery Bradley’s leg injury appears to be not that serious. Otto Porter Jr., if he’s available, should provide the Bulls’ additional firepower as they attempt to outgun the high-octane Lakers’ offense.
Moneyline: A 6th straight win looks very much in the bag for the Lakers. Expect LeBron and Davis to light up the scores sheet anew.
ATS: The NBA betting spread for this game is set at 6.5 points. The Lakers (5-1 ATS) have been really good holding off teams from covering the spread this season.
TOTALs: This game will go under the O/U Total (218 points). Los Angeles is averaging 111 points and holding opponents to just 100 points. They will definitely score a lot of buckets with LeBron and AD leading the way, but it’s their defense that will prevent the Bulls from scoring their usual outputs (106 PPG).
Score Prediction: 118-97 Lakers
