Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers share the best record in the NBA with their co-tenants in the Staples Center, LA Clippers. LeBron James will be making a return to his home city and face his former team Cleveland Cavaliers. This team is deep and continues to showcase its versatility every game. The Lakers’ usual duo of James and Anthony Davis did most of the work in their most recent game against the Chicago Bulls but expect other players in the roster to step up against this retooled Cavs. Dennis Shroeder, Kyle Kuzma, and Montrezl Harrell should be playing critical roles in the defensive end.

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers after giving the Brooklyn Nets two losses find themselves blown away by the Boston Celtics by 38 points, 103-141. Collin Sexton had a bad night and only played 13 minutes and had six turnovers. The game was decided early and the Cavs just tried to get other players in their team some playing time down to Dean Wade getting 7 minutes inside the basketball court. The Cavs need to play with a sense of urgency like what they did against the Nets if they intend to get a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at home. Expect them to bring their A-game as they want to prove to LeBron James that they are fine without him.
