Anthony Davis Double Up

Given how important Davis has been to the Lakers, and how dominant he looked in Game 2, the following prop bet looks quite intriguing.

  • Anthony Davis 30+ Points And LA To Win +190

Davis scored more than 30 points in Game 2, and the Lakers, of course, won that game.

In Game 1, he was well under 30 points, and the Lakers lost.

If the Lakers win, it will be behind monster performances from either LeBron James or AD, and this is a good way to get value on a Laker victory.

Remember, the Lakers are -280 on the moneyline, and adding the Davis over 30 points prop takes the bet all the way to +190.

This could be good value for (* sports bettors *) looking to wager on the Lakers.
