The Los Angeles Lakers are set to face the Golden State Warriors for the fourth time this season on Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. ET. The winner will secure the seventh seed in the Western Conference, while the loser will face off against an elimination game ahead of the playoffs and get a chance to earn the eighth seed. Let’s take a look at the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Andre Drummond double-double (+136)
Drummond is riding an impressive streak of four straight double-doubles and will get a chance to go for a fifth against one of the worst rebounding teams in basketball. Draymond Green will be busy with Anthony Davis, so Drummond will get a chance to feast against Kevon Looney and the rest of the Warriors’ weak center rotation. Oddsmakers seem to think Davis has a better chance to record a double-double, but that seems like a mistake given how Drummond has attacked the glass lately. Look for the Lakers to capitalize on their size advantage early.
Kent Bazemore O1.5 three-pointers (+128)
Bazemore will continue filling in for Kelly Oubre (wrist) and has been a very efficient shooter this year. He’s converting 40% of his shots from beyond the arc and will likely get his fair share of open looks while Stephen Curry is getting blitzed. Bazemore has made multiple threes in just under half of his games over the last two months, and the Warriors’ rotation will shorten in this kind of big-time game.
Dennis Schroder O.4.5 assists (+108)
Schroder notched five or more assists in 10 straight games before landing in COVID-19 health and safety protocol. He’s fallen one dime short of five in each of his two games in May but is averaging 5.3 assists per game through three matchups against Golden State.
