Betting on the Thunder?  

The Thunder is in rebuild mode, and they’ve been slow to adjust and get things going this season. OKC has struggled to get a footing in a difficult Western Conference with such an inexperienced roster and mix of players.

The problem is, the Thunder may have a hard time digging themselves out of this early-season rut without players such as former All-Star point guard Chris Paul not kicking into gear as was expected.

Though second-year guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has picked up the slack in scoring, without Paul contributing his own, it’s going to be hard for the Thunder to win games.

Betting on the Lakers?  

The Lakers took matters into their own hands right from the get-go. All the hype and expectations are being met with powerful performances that have taken the Lakers to a four-game win streak entering tonight’s game.

Los Angeles entered Monday’s game against the Hawks with a three-game lead over the Clippers and Suns in the Pacific Division. The Lakers’ magical duo of LeBron and AD are crushing it, and they’re only getting started.

The Lakers have raced out of the gate to win 11 of their first 13 games that include seven out of eight wins at home. Los Angeles is excellent at both sides of the court, only giving up 100.6 points per game and dominating opponents with LeBron and Davis leading the offense.

Insider Prediction: So far, all the hoopla surrounding the Lakers has been warranted. Los Angeles is winning games quite easily and doesn’t seem pushed by an opponent they’ve played this season so far. I think it will be the same case in tonight’s game; the Lakers dominate and win.
