Lakers vs Nuggets
Today marks the return of the National Basketball Association(NBA). With the regular season kicking off today at 7:30 p.m., the reigning champions, Denver Nuggets, will defend their title against the Lebron-led Lakers in what is anticipated to be an early preview of a western conference potential playoffs matchup.
Vegas has the spread set at minus 5.5, with the Nuggets winning their home opening with an over-under of 228.5. The Lakers are hoping for a Denver team to come into the game flat, as they will also be holding their ring ceremony before the game, and most teams usually aren't that locked into the game after. Still, bettors are placing money on Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic to overcome the possible slow start.
