Best Bet: Lakers WIN
We don’t have to wait long for the LA Derby as Opening Day is headlined by the Clippers against the Lakers. With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George linking up at the Clippers and Davis joining the Lakers, this already intense rivalry takes on even more meaning in season 2019/2020. Unfortunately, Paul George is out for this clash after offseason shoulder surgery. So the Lakers are well favoured to start the new season with a confidence building victory. The Wolf thinks it’ll be a tough ask for the Clippers and can’t see the Lakers dropping this important clash. Davis and McGee will be a tough matchup in the paint. So that should give LeBron plenty of space to weave his magic. Danny Green is also a good pickup and Avery Bradley should be dangerous off the bench. Lakers won the last meeting 122-117 and they should be fired up after a poor 2018/2019 season.
Next Best: OVER 225.5 ($1.90)
The Over has been a solid bet with the Lakers and Clippers involved so the Wolf is liking it on Opening Day. It’s 5-2 in the last 7 meetings and both sides have improved offensively in the offseason. OVER is also 5-1 in the Clippers last 6 home games.
Value Bet: Either Team By Less Than 7 ($2.36)
The Los Angeles rivalry has produced a number of close finishes recently and the Wolf can’t see this being any different. Both sides will be desperate to start the season with a win and it won’t get any better against a rival. The last meeting saw the Lakers take the Clippers down 122-117 and the average margin in the last 3 meetings is 5.33 points.
Same Game Multi: Lakers WIN / OVER 225.5 ($3.12)
Tip: Los Angeles Clippers at $2.22
