Prediction

The Battle of LA should be full of drama just like all the mini-series and movies that get filmed right down the road.

The Clippers are sitting 6th in the West right now but only 2 games separate them and the Lakers, who sit 12th.

It is tight in the middle of the West and this is the portion of the season where good teams start to lay their claim for a playoff appearance and the pretenders fade away.

Both of these teams have work to do in the last half of the season to get themselves in a strong playoff position and that passion and grit will be on display tonight.

The Clippers have the better lineup, no doubt, especially with Leonard and George healthy and contributing.

But LeBron will have his stamp on this game, in more ways than one.

This feels like a LeBron type of night, where he comes out and puts the Lakers on his back to beat their inner city rivals.

The Clippers won both matchups earlier this season and I could see them getting another one tonight.

But I think the Lakers keep it close and cover the spread.

The Lakers go as LeBron goes and tonight, I think he goes. Hard.

Best Bet

Lakers +5 (-110)


Player Prop of the Game

I. Zubac 1+ Assists/ D. Schroder 3+ Assists (-105)

Same Game Parlay at BETMGM

I didn’t love any individual prop in this game that had good value so let’s use this 2 man Same Game Parlay for my Prop of the Game.

Zubac is definitely boom or bust in the assists department but he has 1+ assist in 9 of the Clippers last 10 games and 1+ assist in 3 straight against the Lake Show.

The other half of this is Schroder to get 3+ assists. Schroder has 3+ helpers in 6 of his last 7 games and 8+ in 2 straight games.

He hasn’t played the Clippers so far this season on the Lakers but historically, he is a great facilitator against the Clips, with 3+ assists in 7 straight games.

For the nice -105 value on this play, I love it.
