The Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors will face off for the third time this season in Monday’s final game. The season series is knotted up at 1-1 ahead of the last regular-season meeting between these two teams. Can the Lakers assert their dominance without Anthony Davis (Achilles), or will the Warriors take the momentum from their 12-point victory over the Utah Jazz to power themselves to a win? Let’s go over the best betting options on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors, 10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Pick ATS: Warriors -2.5

Golden State got blown out the last time it faced Los Angeles, despite Anthony Davis not playing, but that matchup was in the Staples Center. Stephen Curry has a history of not playing well in Los Angeles. His shooting percentages and averages in points, rebounds, and assists per game are better at the Chase Center. The Warriors have won four straight games at home and put up 131 points against the team with the league’s third-best defensive rating on Sunday. I like their odds against a Lakers squad that won’t have a defensive anchor.

Player Prop: Andrew Wiggins O2.5 assists (+136)

Wiggins has averaged just over a pair of assists per game every month this season but has demonstrated a heightened ability to create for others lately. He’s tallied at least three assists in five of his last 10 games. If his trend of improved playmaking continues, a trio of assists will be within reach.
