Opening NBA point spreads for December 19th schedule

We take a look at the initial spreads on DraftKings Sportsbook for Thursday’s four-game NBA card.

Thursday night’s Draftkings lineup will consist of a four-game slate and will feature two big time matchups. First off, the Lakers will take on the Bucks in Milwaukee. Both teams sit atop their respective conferences, so we’ll get to see the the best of the best going at it. The Bucks had an 18-game winning streak snapped earlier this week but have ridden the dominance of Giannis Antetokounmpo to a league-best 24-4 record. Meanwhile the duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis have helped the Lakers reach the same 24-4 mark with a totally reconstructed roster and coaching staff. This should be a good one.

We’ll also see the Rockets and Clippers duke it out in the last contest of the night. These two teams put on a real show when they last met. Los Angeles barley edged out Houston in late-November, and Paul George and Kawhi Leonard combined for 43 points. However, James Harden exploded for 37 points and 12 assists while Russell Westbrook scored 22. There will be no shortage of stars or excitement in this four-game slate.

Here are the initial lines for tonight’s nine-game slate on DraftKings Sportsbook:

Jazz @ Hawks (+6.5, 225.5) 7:30 p.m. ET
Lakers @ Bucks (-4, 226) 8:00 p.m. ET
Nets @ Spurs (-3.5, 219.5) 8:30 p.m. ET
Rockets @ Clippers (-4.5, 235.5) 10:30 p.m. ET

Note: Bets and DFS players will lock at those specific game times.
