Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers have won four of their last six games since Kobe Bryant passed away from an unfortunate helicopter crash. They have won back-to-back games against the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors. Both games, the Lakers reached 125 points. LeBron James has been controlling the floor for the Lakers as he always poses a triple-double threat in every game he plays this season. Anthony Davis is the best scorer for the team with 26.5 points along with 9.4 rebounds and 2.4 blocks. It is forecasted that the Lakers need more help at the point guard position but Rajon Rondo recently has been playing great and his production may just do it for the Lakers.

Denver Nuggets Betting
Nikola Jokic has been a force in the league from both ends of the floor and his gameplay has been the main reason why they have won 8 of their last 10 games. This team is poised to make a good run as they have some core players back and healthy. Jamaal Murray has been the second-best scorer for the team while Millsap is very serviceable in this league and he is back from the injury. Look for this team to capitalize Jokic but the wing players should be ready for the knockouts that he will give out.
Players to Watch: N. Jokic C 54 GP 54 GS 32.4 MIN 20.6 PTS 2.5 OR 7.8 DR 10.2 REB 6.9 AST 1.1 STL 0.7 BLK 3 TO 3.1 PF 2.3 AST/TO 25.37 PER
