Betting on the Los Angeles Lakers
- Preseason record: 1-3.
- Probability: (10/11)
Making an analysis of what the Lakers’ season will look like based on the preseason they had, seems a bit complex. Still, if we were to do so, it could be suspected that the Los Angeles team will have a hard time. After starting the games with a 40-point loss to Sacramento, the Lakers fell to the Suns and Timberwolves before picking up their first win against the Warriors.
Lebron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook have alternated their playing time because they were looking to be in shape for the regular round without risking injury. In fact, James and Westbrook sat out the last two games before they were put in action last Wednesday against Minnesota.
Betting on Sacramento Kings
- Preseason record: 3-0.
- Probability: (10/11)
Unlike the Lakers, who played five preseason games prior to this last one, the Kings have just played three games, all of which had very positive results.
The Sacramento team began its warm-up for the regular round beating the Lakers by 40 points, in a game in which 19 of the team’s players scored at least one goal.
A few days later, they defeated the Trail Blazers by 32 points, leaving a good feeling about their streak of 16 seasons without a postseason. Another very important fact is that, in both games, Keegan Murray was the best scorer, the team’s first choice, and fourth overall in the last NBA Draft.
Thinking ahead, and about the opening game against the Warriors, the Lakers are sure to put their best efforts to forget the 40-point loss to the Kings, and end the preseason in the best possible way.
Sacramento might be a feeling a little more relaxed after having had less of a load these past few weeks, but surely LeBron James and the rest of the team won’t want to move on without honoring these matchups.
Prediction: Lakers to win.
