NBA Betting Picks & Best Player Props Today

Finding the most profitable NBA betting picks and player props have never been easier. The newly updated OddsShopper is like the Amazon of sports betting. Simply filter, sort the page and find the best bets within seconds. Here are the best bets for today’s five-game slate.

Los Angeles Lakers (- 265) Moneyline Over Sacramento

This is a matchup of two teams that are not in great form. Sacramento has split its last 10 games, while Los Angeles is 4-6. However, LeBron James has been tearing it up for the Lakers, and Los Angeles has been much better defensively than Sacramento. The Lakers have held opponents to an effective field goal percentage of 50%. Meanwhile, the last 10 opponents of the Kings have registered an effective field goal percentage of 53%. Moreover, Sacramento has struggled on the road lately, having lost four of their last five, and they have just a .333 winning percentage against teams with a .500 record or better.

OddsShopper gives the Lakers a 65% chance of taking a 2-1 lead in the season series. Los Angeles lost the first meeting between the teams at home in triple overtime but took the next matchup 117-92 in Sacramento at the end of November.

Memphis-Cleveland Over 215.5 Points

This over has gotten even better since the line dropped 3 points. Both teams are in the middle of pack in terms of pace. Neither team is great defensively, and both have shown the ability to put the ball in the net recently. Cleveland averaged a tad under 114 points, and Memphis tallied around 113 points a game over their last 10. OddsShopper gives the over a 52% chance of hitting.

LeBron James Under 7.5 Assists

James has been carrying the Lakers offensively and doing yeomen’s work on the boards since Anthony Davis went down with his most recent injury. Expect that trend to continue, particularly if the Lakers (19-19) want to remain in the hunt for a top-five or -six seed in the Western Conference. That does not mean that James will completely forego making plays for his teammates, but he will look for his first.

James has scored 26 or more points in each of the last eight games that Davis has been out, topping the 30-point mark seven times. James has also produced three double-doubles and a triple-double during this span. He has averaged 34.1 points along with 10.4 rebounds and six assists in the past eight games. James has also made 56.8% of his 22 shot attempts while draining 3.4 3’s at a 40.3% clip.

James has doled out at least eight assists just once in the last eight games and three times since December. He is projected for 6.45 assists tonight. OddsShopper gives the under a 71% chance of hitting and an expected ROI of 34%.
