Lakers: How To Bet On The Lake Show Despite Oddsmakers’ Confidence In The Nets
LA is a massive underdog tonight.
Your Los Angeles Lakers will be missing their two All-Stars, LeBron James and Anthony Davis (though AD’s candidacy for a 2023 All-Star reserve slot is complicated by his frequent injury absences) tonight against the Brooklyn Nets, in the first game of a back-to-back New York set. Brooklyn will be missing its best player, Kevin Durant, and will probably also be without one of its other priciest players, Ben Simmons.
So what do we should we bet on tonight?
Per Action Network, an excellent gambling odds aggregator, here are some interesting odds and lines ahead of tonight.
The Game Spread
Los Angeles is currently a nine-point underdog to win this evening. The team will be without at least its top two scorers this season, with its fourth-highest scorer, Lonnie Walker IV, also not a sure thing due to his left knee tendinitis. Look for the Nets to cover.
