Los Angeles Lakers Betting

The Lakers captured their fifth straight win on Tuesday but not before surviving the Thunder’s furious comeback attempt in the final minute of the game. LeBron James recorded 25 points, 10 assists, and 11 rebounds to become the first NBA player to register a triple-double against all 30 NBA teams. Anthony Davis also scored a game-high 34 points on 13-for-24 shooting.

Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (25.2 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 3.4 APG), LeBron James (25.0 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 11.1 APG), Kyle Kuzma (13.1 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 0.6 APG)

Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder went toe-to-toe with the Lakers, but couldn’t get the job done down the stretch. With the playing field shifted to their home court, the Thunder will attempt to finish the job they couldn’t pull off three nights ago. Dennis Schroder erupted for 31 points off the bench and Danilo Gallinari added 25 points in a commendable losing effort vs. the league’s top team.

Players to Watch: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (19.4 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 2.9 APG), Danilo Gallinari (19.1 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 1.6 APG), Chris Paul (15.8 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 5.6 APG)

Los Angeles Lakers vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Picks

Analysis: The Lakers are one of the best shooting teams in the NBA at 47.8 percent. They are also an elite defensive club, allowing opponents to score 101 points on 42 percent shooting. The Thunder, meanwhile, are averaging 106 points per contest – good for 24th in the league – but boasts a top-10 defense by allowing foes to just 106 points per ball game.

Moneyline: The Lakers should remain the popular pick to sweep the home-road series with the Thunder. Expect Frank Vogel and his coaching staff to make the necessary adjustments in order for the Lakers to avert another tight contest late.

ATS: A 4.5-point handicap won’t prevent the Lakers from covering the NBA spread and recording their 10th ATS win of the season. The last game should provide them a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of this Thunder team. I am expecting a double-digit win for the Lakers.

TOTALs: The total for this game will go OVER 213 points. The Lakers and Thunder combined for 219 points in their last game. The Lakers should play a lot better defense this time around, though I can still see the Thunder crossing the 100-point mark.

Score Prediction: 116-101 Lakers
