NBA Best Bets for Warriors vs. Lakers Tonight
Warriors vs. Lakers NBA Betting Picks + Odds Shopping
Finding the most profitable NBA betting picks has never been easier. The newly updated OddsShopper tool is like the Amazon of sports betting. Simply filter, sort the page and find the NBA best bets within seconds, as seen below.
Andrew Wiggins Over 17.5 Points (-133) at BetMGM Sportsbook
The importance of odds shopping can be seen with this Andrew Wiggins prop. Some sportsbooks have his points prop set at 19.5, but it is all the way down to 17.5 at BetMGM. Obviously, 2 points is a massive spread, so take advantage of it.
While sharing the floor with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, Wiggins has averaged 19.2 points per 36 minutes. Tonight Awesemo projects Wiggins to play 35.1 minutes and score 19.72 points. The Warriors desperately need someone other than Curry to step up and score, and Wiggins looks to be in the best position to be that person. He scored 18-plus in both games he played over 30 minutes against the Lakers last season.
Russell Westbrook Under 9.5 Assists (-130) at FanDuel Sportsbook
Russell Westbrook often had high assist totals in the past. However, the Lakers have a lot of players that need the ball in their hands, most notably Westbrook and LeBron James. Westbrook will play off ball more than have in his career, and his assist numbers will surely take a hit as a result. The Awesemo Player Props Tool gives this prop a 75% chance to hit the Under, with Westbrook projected for only 8.04 assists.
LeBron James Under 7.5 Rebounds (-165) at DraftKings Sportsbook
The NBA season is a marathon, not a sprint. The Lakers were active in free agency to make this team better. However, the best way to make it better is to keep LeBron James healthy. Because of this, the minutes and/or effort level could start off slow. On top of that, LeBron now has two teammates, Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony, who actively tell their teammates to get away from the ball so they can grab their rebounds. The addition of those two will surely cause James’ rebounding numbers to take a hit this season. The Awesemo Player Props Tool gives this prop a 65% chance to hit the under, with Lebron currently projected for only 6.68 boards.
