We go over the initial lines on DraftKings Sportsbook entering Monday’s seven-game card.

There are seven games on the NBA schedule for Monday’s slate on DraftKings Sportsbook. We’ve got one pretty big narrative with LeBron James and the Lakers hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers. Whenever LeBron faces the Cavs it’s usually a big deal, even though Cleveland isn’t really competitive this season. L.A. is also potentially going to be without Anthony Davis and Rajon Rondo, so this could be the perfect night for LeBron to go off. The Lakers will want to preserve their eight-game winning streak heading into Week 13.

The Timberwolves are in action so that means another chance for Karl-Anthony Towns to potentially return to the lineup. He’s been sidelined for the past three weeks due to a knee injury. The Pacers may be without Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon again, while the Bulls are missing Wendell Carter Jr. to a bad ankle sprain. Jrue Holiday may be out for the Pelicans against the Pistons, so as you can see, plenty of injury news to track before we lock in some bets.

Pelicans @ Pistons (+1, 226.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
76ers @ Pacers (+1, 214) 7:00 p.m. ET
Bulls @ Celtics (-9.5, 215.5) 7:30 p.m. ET
Thunder @ Timberwolves (+2.5, 217.5) 8:00 p.m. ET
Hornets @ Trail Blazers (-8, 218) 10:00 p.m. ET
Magic @ Kings (-3, 211) 10:00 p.m. ET
Cavaliers @ Lakers (-13.5, 220.5) 10:30 p.m. ET
