Pick against the spread, best player prop for Lakers vs Warriors in NBA play-in tournament

We go over some of the best betting options for the NBA play-in tournament matchup between the Lakers and Warriors on Wednesday.

Will Los Angeles (L) cover the spread against Golden State?

The Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors will face off for the fourth time this season in a play-in game on Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. ET. The winning team will secure the seventh seed in the Western Conference, so there’s a lot at stake. Let’ take a look at the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Warriors vs. Lakers, 10:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

Pick ATS: Lakers -5

Los Angeles were stunned in its first game against Golden State this year but has crushed the Warriors in two straight matchups while winning by an average of 28.5 points. LeBron James and Anthony Davis, so the NBA’s best defense could be in tip-top shape. While Stephen Curry can light it up against any team, his shooting percentages from the field and three have been significantly lower against the Lakers this year. The Dubs have also shot 43% or worse from the field in two straight matchups against Los Angeles. The reigning champs should cover the spread with ease here.

Player Prop: Andre Drummond to record a double-double (+136)

Drummond has recorded four straight double-doubles and is up against a Warriors team that’s given up the third-most rebounds per game to opposing teams. Golden State will be at a disadvantage with Draymond Green matching up against Davis and its weak center rotation will have a hard time keeping a prolific rebounder like Drummond off the glass. It doesn’t make sense for Drummond’s double-double odds to be worse than Davis’s (+105).
