NBA 2022: Lakers vs. Warriors Odds & Bettings

Written by on October 17, 2022

We’re in for a great game to open the NBA season tonight. The Los Angeles Lakers will head to Chase Center to face the Golden State Warriors. After the season ended poorly for the Lakers, they’ll hope to get a strong start with a win here.

The Golden State Warriors are also looking for a strong start to the year. With the roster they have, we have no doubt they’ll be a high-scoring team again this year.

The question is, will their defense be able to stop LeBron James and Anthony Davis? Let’s take a look at each of these teams and make our pick for today’s game.

Los Angeles Lakers: Lakers need to show cohesion immediately

Before LeBron James is able to earn another title, he’ll need help from his teammates. The one player that is responsible for this is Anthony Davis.

These two need to lead the team of young players and build cohesion from the beginning. If they’re unable to do this, they’ll find themselves in the same position they were in last year.

They begin their season against arguably the best team in the NBA. Beating the Warriors means playing impeccable defense and taking advantage of opportunities.

Last season, the Lakers averaged 112.1 points per game, which is actually more than the Warriors. Their only problem was they didn’t play well as a team.

Golden State Warriors: Will Poole and Green play well together?

The preseason came to a close with some negative news surrounding the Warriors. Draymond Green and Jordan Poole got into a scuffle which resulted in a punch being thrown by Green.

Although the issue is said to be resolved, sometimes team chemistry is irreparable after something like this. This could end up affecting how the Warriors play tonight.

We all know how great the Warriors can be when it comes to scoring. Last year, they averaged 111 points per game, but their real key to winning is how they play as a team.

Jordan Poole was a big factor last season, and we expect more from him this year. We’ve yet to see either team this year but based on last season; the Warriors have the edge.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors Betting Pick

The Warriors come into this game as six-point favorites, with the total set at 227. Over their last three games against the Lakers, they’ve gone 1-2 against the spread.

The Lakers have a few new players as well, including Patrick Beverley. He’s not necessarily a strong offensive player, but he can definitely play defense.

Beverley should be able to provide the Lakers with the defense necessary to win this game. With a bit of offense from LeBron James and Anthony Davis, we’ll take the Lakers on the road.

Although they might not win the game, they should be able to cover the spread. We’ll also take the over in this game since each of the last three have gone over.
