Los Angeles Lakers Betting

The Los Angeles Lakers were edged by the Golden State Warriors during their most recent match by just 2 points, 113-115, to snap their five-game winning streak. LeBron James was out in the media complaining about calls but it gave him the bad light after the Lakers lost their fourth game of the season. This team has been carrying a good bill of health with just their third-string players on the injury list. Anthony Davis played well in the paint but Dennis Shroeder is showing that he can also lead the team. Kyle Kuzma has become more comfortable with his role and that makes the Lakers a deadly team every night.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Milwaukee Bucks were also on a roll winning four-straight games and it got snapped by the new superpower in the NBA Eastern Conference, Brooklyn Nets. That game was close and the Bucks lost by just two points, 123-125. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 34 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists while Khris Middleton had 25. Jrue Holiday is fitting well with the team as he produced 22 points and six assists. Brook Lopez also contributed 15 points but the team is lacking depth as compared to what they have the previous season. Bobby Portis was a big pickup but the backcourt rotation got thinner.
