Los Angeles Lakers Betting

The Lakers, who probably have the deepest frontline in the NBA, found themselves no match against the undersized Rockets on Thursday. Anthony Davis dominated the paint with 32 points and 13 rebounds, while LeBron James flirted with a near triple-double of 18 points, 15 assists and 9 rebounds. Danny Green and Avery Bradley recorded 15 points each, while Alex Caruso contributed 12. Los Angeles shot well on the floor but it’s very unusual for a defensive team like the Lakers to allow more than 50 percent from the field. The Rockets shot 50 percent and drained 19 treys in the game.

Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (26.5 PPG, 9.1 RPG and 3.3 APG)

LeBron James (25.1 PPG, 7.7 RPG, and 10.8 APG)

Kyle Kuzma (12.9 PPG, 4.4 RPG and 1.1 APG)

Golden State Warriors Betting

The Warriors finally accepted the fact that making the playoffs is no longer feasible. More than the departure of Kevin Durant, injuries have kept these Warriors from being the team that dominated the second half of the 2010s. However, the trade deadline reminds us that Golden State is here to stay after they acquired Andrew Wiggins from the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for D’Angelo Russell.

Players to Watch: Eric Paschall (13.5 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 1.7 APG)

Andrew Wiggins (22.4 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 3.7 APG)

Damion Lee (11.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 2.5 APG)

Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors Betting Picks

Major sports betting sites remain bullish on the Lakers despite Anthony Davis being listed as a possible healthy scratch for Saturday’s game. For the Warriors, a 14.5-point spread presents an opportunity for them to clinch an ATS win, especially if they get something out of Andrew Wiggins tonight.

Moneyline: Pick the Lakers at -1800. The odds say it all. It’s no brainer, the Lakers – with or without Davis – can easily win this game, barring a miracle.

ATS: Bet the Warriors to cover the 14.5-point spread. The Lakers are 4-6 against the spread in their last 10 games. If, and that’s a big if, Andrew Wiggins plays, I feel the Warriors might have a chance to give the Lakers some resistance all the way to the end.

TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 224.5 points. The Lakers scored 129 points in back-to-back games before scoring 111 points in a loss to the Rockets. The Warriors will have struggles scoring the ball as they try to acclimatize Wiggins to their system. Still, the Lakers’ firepower will be enough to cover the OVER.

Score Prediction: 118 – 110 Lakers
