Bucks vs Lakers Prediction & Player Prop of the Game: Giannis vs The King cover


Giannis Antetokounmpo and the red hot Milwaukee Bucks roll into Crypto.com Arena tonight to take on LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.

All eyes were on LeBron James last game, as he became the all time leading scorer in NBA history, surpassing the great Kareem Abdul-Jabaar.

In what was an emotional game against the Thunder on Tuesday night as LeBron broke the long-standing record, but the Lakers lost the game.

Looking to pick up a win tonight, they will have to try and slow down Giannis and the Bucks, which is not an easy job.

Ok let’s dive in…

Milwaukee Bucks vs Los Angeles Lakers

  • Game Date and Time: Thursday, February 9th, 2023. 10:00 PM EST
  • Game Location: Crypto.com Arena. Los Angeles, California.
  • Where to Watch: TNT/NBA TV


  • Bucks -6 (-110)
  • Lakers +6 (-110)


  • Bucks (-350)
  • Lakers (+270)


  • Over 238.5 (-110)
  • Under 238.5 (-110)



The Bucks are on absolute fire right now, winning 8 games in a row and 9 of their last 10 games.

They are keeping pace with the Celtics at the top of the East, sitting 1.5 games back from the boys in Boston.

They will want to keep pushing towards that top spot and have a great opportunity to get another win to get 9 in a row.

Giannis will be out in full force tonight (more on the Greek Freak in a bit) and give the Lakers all they can handle and more.

The Lakers will get a chance to rock with their new lineup addition in D’Angelo Russell as well, which will be an interesting piece to fit into this jumbled Lakers roster puzzle.

Russell returns back to LA for his second go as a Laker, and we will find out what his role will be with Lebron, AD and company.

In this game tonight, I don’t see a way that Giannis and the Bucks don’t get it done in LA.

LeBron will surely have a big role in this one but the Bucks should do enough and get their 9th straight win.

Best Bet

Bucks -6 (-110)

Player Prop of the Game

Giannis Antetokounmpo o33.5 Points (-120) BetMGM

As I mentioned above, Giannis is on an absolute tear.

He has scored 34+ points in 5 of his last 6 games and 3 of those were 40+ point performances.

Speaking of 40+ point performances, guess what he has done against the Lakers the last 3 matchups?

Dopped 40+ all three games.

Look for Giannis to have another 35+ point performance, and maybe even flirt with 40 yet again in Los Angeles tonight.


Giannis 40+ (+220)
