The book opened up with the Warriors as 4.5-point favourites against the Lakers, but with LeBron ruled out it has now moved to 6.5 points in some books. The last game between these two teams went down to the wire with the Lakers winning in OT. Lebron scored 36 points in that one with 12 assists and 20 rebounds.

With ‘The King’ out of the lineup you have to give the edge to the Warriors who were in great form heading into the All Star break. This game can still be a close contest so the line is a bit hefty for my liking, so I will safe up with a money line bet for the Warriors.

Steph Curry plays big against the Lakers, scoring 46 points in the meeting earlier this season. I expect Curry to be heavily involved again and go Over his 30.5 player points total.

Despite Curry going over, this game total is set too high. Both offences had been firing before the break, however, these two teams trend well under the 243.5 point total when they face each other.

  • Golden State has won 2 of their last 3 home games against Los Angeles.
  • All 10 of the previous matches between the Lakers and the Warriors have finished with a game total Under 243.5 points in regulation time.
  • Steph Curry has scored 30+ points in 3 of his last 4 games against the Lakers.

Steph Curry will score over 30 points again in the Warriors win over the Lakers.
