Interesting Stats and Betting Trends:

  • The Lakers are 1-5 ATS in their last six games when playing in Denver.
  • The total has hit the under in four of the Lakers' last five games on the road.
  • Denver is 8-4 ATS in its last 12 games at home.
  • The total has hit the over in four of Denver's last six games when playing at home against the Lakers.

Best Prop Bets:

  • Nikola Jokic Over 18.5 Points (-126): Jokic averages less than 17 points per game against the Lakers in his career, but had 24 points against them in their previous meeting this season. At home in a big spot tonight against a hot Lakers team, expect Jokic to focus on scoring.
  • LeBron James Over 27.5 Points (-122): The Nuggets don't really have a lockdown defender to take on LeBron James. Gary Harris, Paul Milsap, and Jokic are good defenders, but none have the physical prowess to lock up LeBron (not that anyone really does) so expect him to score pretty freely tonight. Games in Denver usually operate at a pretty fast pace so there could be a handful of extra possessions for each team this evening. More possessions equals more points.
