Mavericks vs Lakers Betting Prediction

The Lakers have been the second-best team to bet against on spread bets this season. The good news however is that they’ve covered 57.1% of the time as the away underdog.

Injuries mean this game won’t be the marquee matchup that the NBA was hoping for. LA however should cover comfortably especially if LeBron is able to play. The forward averaged 28.3 ppg on 60.8% shooting to go with 8 apg, 7.5 rpg, 1.8 spg and 1.8 bpg over the past week.

The Mavericks will be leaning on Kristaps Porzingis to carry the load but he shouldn’t pose too much trouble for the Lakers. LA are much better shooters and can cover as underdogs, especially since Dallas are without their primary scorer.
