The Los Angeles Lakers are facing off against the Los Angeles Clippers for the second time this season on Sunday. The Lakers fell to the Clippers earlier this year and are at a big disadvantage while both of their superstars are injured. Betting angles could be interesting in this matchup. Let's go over some ideal odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Lakers vs. Clippers, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC

Pick ATS: Clippers -10.5

The Lakers still don’t have Anthony Davis or LeBron James. While the Clippers have lost back-to-back home games against the Orlando Magic and Denver Nuggets, Paul George missed one of those contests and struggled from the field when he returned from a two-game layoff against a Denver team that’s boasted the best defensive rating in the NBA since it acquired Aaron Gordon ahead of the NBA’s trade deadline last month. George should be back in the swing of things against a Lakers side that’s missing both of its defensive anchors. He and Kawhi Leonard are enough to get the job done, even without Serge Ibaka (back).

Player Prop: Dennis Schroder O2.5 three-pointers (+200)

Schroder’s taken on a larger offensive role since LeBron went down with an ankle sprain and has hit two or more threes in three of his last seven games. He’s averaged more than 13 shot attempts per game since James got hurt and the Clippers are weak against point guards defensively with Patrick Beverley sidelined. Schroder isn’t known for his sharpshooting, but circumstance has called for him to take more heaves.
