Los Angeles Lakers Betting Preview

The Lakers picked up their last two wins and now sit in the sixth seed in the Western Conference at 15-13 overall.

I know we are just one third into this NBA season, but LA is just one game above Dallas in the standings, so this game could actually have big playoff implications.

The Lakers got the 106-94 win against the horrible Orlando Magic on Sunday. In that game, Lebron put up a triple double and as per reports for today he’s listed as probable to play in this one.

Anthony Davis sat out Sunday and is listed as questionable for this matchup with that lingering knee injury.

On the road this season, Los Angeles has the 6th best offense in the league that’s putting up 110 points per game, but their road defense has been near the bottom in the league giving up an average of 111 points per game.

Dallas Mavericks Betting Preview

The Dallas Mavericks will still be without their all-star Luka Doncic, who’s dealing with that left ankle injury. After this game, the Mavs will have a few days off, so this is the perfect opportunity for Luka to rest that ankle.

All eyes now will be on Jalen Brunson and Kristaps Porzingis who now will see if they can lead this team to take care of business tonight against the Lakers.

Dallas at home this season is only scoring an average of 105.5 points per game while giving up 104.8 points per game on defense.

The Mavericks are 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games against an opponent in the Western Conference and the total has gone under in 7 of Dallas’ last 7 games.
