The Denver Nuggets want to stop the LA Lakers and avenge the recent loss to the purple and gold.

Before Betting on LA Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets

The Lakers have five wins in a row, three on the road, and may we say that their rivals have been pretty challenging. After wins in Atlanta and Charlotte, they beat the Heat and the Hawks in LA before posting a big W in Sacramento, 136-134.

James and the boys took the triumph in the final few seconds, with Dennis Schroder hitting two free throws with a bit more than two seconds to go. LeBron had 37 points with eight boards and seven assists. Thomas Bryant was fantastic with 29 points and 14 boards, missing only two of 14 FG attempts. Schroder had 27 and Westbrook 23 with 15 assists. 

The Nuggets snapped a streak of excellent games and performances by losing to the Timberwolves. However, Jokic and the boys bounced back with two victories at home, against the Clippers and the Cavs, 121-108. 

Jokic added yet another triple-double, having 28 points, 15 boards and 10 assists. Murray added 19, MPJ 16, and KCP scored 14. Overall, the Nuggets had seven players with a double-digit number of points.

The Lakers are solid, but this will be their first game against a top team after several ones vs. mediocre rivals. Denver is hostile at home, and a much better team than the Lakers has fallen at the Ball Arena. That’s why we bet on their win.
