Los Angeles Lakers Odds, Betting Types, & Team Insights

After winning the title in the 2019-20 season, most NBA fans thought LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the Lakers crew would cruise to another NBA Finals appearance. The Lakers, however, were knocked down in the first round, losing to the Phoenix Suns in six games after Davis injured his groin midway through the series.

LeBron and Co. will be looking for revenge in the 2021-22 campaign, and you can track all of the Lakers odds, their full schedule, injury reports, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, and much more here and on our NBA Futures Odds page.

Los Angeles Lakers Point Spreads

The Lakers are clearly one of the NBA's best teams--but that doesn't mean you can just print money by betting them every night. That's because bets are largely tied to expectations, and the Lakers were often expected to win and cover in most of their affairs.

An example is a spread bet, which is a wager on how much a team will win or lose a game by. Here's an example for the Lakers:

The favorite in spread bets will always have a minus sign, whereas the underdog will have a plus sign. In this example, the Lakers are 5.5-point favorites, which means to cash a spread bet on them they'd have to beat the Clippers by six or more points. This is known as "covering the spread" in point spread betting. In the 2020-21 season, the Lakers finished 32-39-1 against-the-spread (ATS), largely due to those high expectations.

Los Angeles Lakers Moneylines

Moneyline bets, which are wagers on whether a team will win the game (unlike the spread, the margin of victory doesn't matter), are also based on expectations. For a favorite, you'll have to pay more to win. Here's another Lakers example:

  • Los Angeles Lakers -240
  • Sacramento Kings +190

The Lakers are likely to win, which means you can't just bet $10 on them and get $10 if they beat the Kings. Their -240 odds in the example means you'd have to bet $24 for every $10 you want to profit. With the Kings odds, you'd win $19 for every $10 placed if they beat the Lakers.

Los Angeles Lakers Over/Unders aka Totals

Ever since the Lakers acquired Anthony Davis, they've had regular moments of special defense. That translated last season into success for under bettors, who went 41-29-2 on Lakers games. Over/under bets, often called totals, are bets on how many points will be scored in a game.

Say the Lakers and Warriors had a total of 229 points. You can bet either side, and an over bet would cash at 230 or more points combined, whereas the under would hit at 228 or fewer. It's possible for the game to finish on the number, which is called a push.

LA Lakers Props

Throughout his long, brilliant career, LeBron James has racked up a ton of triple-doubles. Any given night of the season, you can bet on something like that happening. Those are called prop bets, and they can be tied to a player or something specific about a game. For example, you can also bet on which player will score first in a Lakers game.

Lakers Futures Odds

If you're confident LeBron James and Anthony Davis will rebound in 2021-22 and bring back another NBA title to L.A., look at futures bets. These are wagers based on end-of-season outcomes. Some other Lakers futures include LeBron to win another MVP, Davis to win Defensive Player of the Year, and more. For tips on futures betting, check out our educational coverage on futures here.
