The Lakers should cover the spread again in their second straight matchup against the Grizzlies.

The Los Angeles Lakers are set to face the Memphis Grizzlies on the road in Tuesday’s second game at 8:00 p.m. ET. We’ll go over how you should go about betting against the spread and identify an ideal prop bet for the matchup on DraftKings Sportsbook here.

ATS Pick: Lakers -9

I’m surprised the Lakers aren’t favored by a lot more here given that the Grizzlies will be without Ja Morant for an extended period of time. Memphis is at a significant disadvantage because of lopsided mismatches at multiple positions. Dennis Schroder, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis should dominant their matchups and put this game out of reach early. I doubt that Dillon Brooks and Jonas Valanciunas will be enough to help the underdogs stay competitive after losing to the reigning champs by 12 earlier this month.

Player Prop: Anthony Davis to record a double-double (+100)

Davis’s rebounding numbers are down this year but he was just one board away from getting his third double-double of the year the last time he faced the Grizzlies. He should play inspired ball after scoring just 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting his last time out and has a major advantage matching up against Kyle Anderson and Brandon Clarke at the power forward position. Davis recorded a double-double in 46 percent of his regular-season games last year so +100 odds should give you a great opportunity to cash out.
