Online NBA Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers enter this Wednesday’s matchup sporting a 9-7 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Pacific Division. With the 12-6 Golden State Warriors currently leading the division, it’s clear that Los Angeles is still in the running for the playoffs. In fact, the Lakers are currently sitting atop the crucial 8th seed in the Western Conference. Granted, there’s no question the franchise will be looking to get some wiggle room in the race for the playoffs. As the season drags on, Los Angeles should be able to create some separation. We all know LeBron likes to take it easy early in the season in order to conserve his energy. Therefore we can expect Los Angeles to have a late season resurgence and lock up a spot in the playoffs. As for tonight’s matchup, we can surely expect LeBron to hand Cleveland a beating on the road. Although James was beloved by the city, he had more than his fair share of problems with the management. Expect to see James taking care of those problems this evening.
Players to Watch: LeBron James (28.8 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 6.9 apg), Kyle Kuzma (16.9 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.4 apg), and Brandon Ingram (15.2 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 2.3 apg)
The Cavs step into this Wednesday night contest with a meager 2-13 record that pegs as the worst team in the entire NBA. It’s interesting to see how much Cleveland is struggling this season. All in all their woes make it perfectly clear just how much they needed LeBron. At the end of the day, the Cavs were unable to give LeBron what he needed and it was best that both sides split. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Cleveland is in for a long evening. The Lakers currently rank 4th in the NBA in scoring while the Cavs rank 27th. Heck, that 9 point spread might be giving the Cavs too much credit.
Players to Watch: Kevin Love (l9.0 ppg, 13.5 rpg, 3.5 apg), Jordan Clarkson (15.4 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 1.9 apg), and Collin Sexton (13.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 1.9 apg).
