Exclusive! Betting Insights On Bucks vs. Lakers

Has LeBron kicked into high-gear? Because the Lakers need LeBron to take matters into his own hands if the Lakers are going to make the playoffs. But, standing in their way are the Bucks, a team that doesn’t seem too concerned in showing the least bit of compassion.

What: Milwaukee Bucks vs. Los Angeles Lakers

  • When: March 01, 2019, 10:30 PM ET
  • Where: STAPLES Center
  • Spread: Bucks -4.5
  • Over/Under: 238.5

Reasons To Bet the Bucks

Milwaukee is crushing it this season. The Bucks have strung together six wins in a row and appear determined to lock up the No. 1 seed in the standings.

The Bucks are trailing a 22-9 record on the road so far this season. So heading into Staples Center won’t take them off their game, LeBron notwithstanding.

There’s also another big reason to fear the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo finally seems ready to sit on the throne, leading the way with 24.7 points per game over the past two weeks.

It’s not only Antetokounmpo who’s pulling his weight, but teammates such as Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon have also come together to stack up points on the scoreboard.

Reasons To Bet the Lakers

LeBron James. He’s the reason to bet the Lakers. He’s already proved he can take a losing team all the way to the NBA Finals, multiple times.

The Lakers had lost four of their previous five games before beating the New Orleans Pelicans 125-119 on Wednesday night. Even if it were a small win, LeBron’s teammates would have to find in it the reasons to step up.

Having home-court advantage should help, however, though as stated above, the Bucks have a great on the road record which might render the edge worthless.
