Lakers Vs. Warriors Predictions – Christmas Day Basketball Betting
Los Angeles Lakers +9 (-110) Vs. Golden State Warriors -9 (-110)
When LeBron James joined the LA Lakers, he knew he will be lineup against the Warriors a lot. Either on Christmas Day or during postseason meetings. Either way, he knew this was coming. James and the Lakers have lost three of their last four games before taking the Warriors. Losses against Washington, Brooklyn, and Memphis are less than ideal before facing a Golden State. The Warriors feel like a team that gained their confidence back.
The Warriors opened as 8-point favorites at MyBookie.ag but the betting line quickly escalated to 9-points. I don’t expect any sudden movement before the tipoff. The game total is at 234 points, the highest of the NBA Christmas lineup. This will be the first time LeBron James meet the Warriors dressed as a Laker. He knows his opponent well enough, but he’s on a new team, and his teammates might not be up for the challenge. Playing Golden State on Christmas Day, when everybody is watching is a big deal. I can see this team getting on scoring runs where the Lakers won’t be able to stop them, even if they had three LeBron Jameses out there.
The Warriors have won eight of their last ten games and are back to their usual form. The return of Steph Curry and Draymond Green brought back a lot of confidence and talent. However, here’s the tricky part. Out of those last ten games, Golden State covered the spread only four times. In fact, they have come out short for their backers in six of their last ten games. The oddsmakers have mostly made the Warriors double-digits favorites or close this season. But Golden State is not that type of team anymore. They are really good, don’t get me wrong. They should be the favorites to win the championship, but they are not deep enough to cover large spreads on a nightly basis. I like the Warriors to win, but the Lakers will be good enough to cover. What’s the play? Lakers +9.
