LA Lakers vs LA Clippers Best Bet: Tuesday, January 24th

LA Lakers vs LA Clippers Preview

Tue, Jan 25th. 03:00 am (UK time)

The Lakers have been battling their way up the standings without their Co-Superstar Anthony Davis as he is sitting out due to a foot injury. L. James who is having an outstanding season does not have the needed supportive cast to make the team get into the playoff conversation. Their defense has been horrifying as they are 20th in the league in DEFRTG, allowing almost 118 PPG to their opponents on a nightly basis. They are allowing their opponents nearly 20 ppg after 2nd opportunity attacks as well.

For tonight’s game, they will be missing L. Walker IV (knee injury), A. Davis (foot injury), A. Reaves (Hamstring injury) while L. James is “doubtful” for tonight’s game.

The Clippers are known to be the team that is planning their games during the season. With so many resting days for their main start, the Clippers usually end up the regular season in the middle of the pack and fight through the Playoffs as the middle-to-bottom seeds. This year they have shown great interest in making more consistent results in the regular season and they will be playing their superstars more to acquire this goal. They are scoring 110 PPG and shooting 54% effectively from the field. Their defence is ranked 10th in the league with a DEFRTG of 112. This gives us a clear picture that the Clippers are more well-rounded even with a full LA roster, but tonight with all the issues they are clear favorites to take the W.

LA Lakers vs LA Clippers Best Bet

Although Moneyline suggests the Clippers are favorites, it is closer than it should be. If we indeed see L. James called out for tonight’s game we expect the Clippers’ win to drop to 1.35. They have won the last 3 out of 4 games against the Lakers and with a good approach tonight can keep the good series of results going for them.

Odds as of 1:00 pm January 24th, 2023. Odds may now differ.
