The Pick: Lakers +1
Why bet the Lakers:
✅ LeBron James and Anthony Davis have looked phenomenal of late and the Lakers are playing with excellent chemistry, winning five of their last six contests.
✅ The Lakers are also coming off a loss and will surely be ready to step on the gas pedal. That won’t be good news for a Bucks team that’s struggled in big games early this season.
✅ The Lakers rank 2nd in all of the NBA with a 48.8% field goal rate. They do not waste shots and keep it extremely tough on their opponents with 6.5 blocked shots per game. That’s a tough combo to overcome.
✅ LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo have faced off 20 times with James winning 15 of the matchups. He has the Bucks number of late and is on his best team to date.
✅ Los Angeles Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
