  • The updated betting odds for the Lakers vs. Warriors matchup list LA as a double-digit road favorite (spread: -10.5), but the over/under (220.5) is attracting more of the pro attention.
  • With LeBron James sidelined ahead of Thursday's matchup, sharp bettors been jumping on the total to move all afternoon.

The major news of tonight’s Lakers-Warriors matchup broke last night, as it was announced that LeBron James would miss this game. Apparently he’s pretty important given how the market reacted.

After taking the spread off the board — it had been around -13 — oddsmakers reopened it this morning at around -10.5, which is close to where it sits now (Lakers -10 across most of the market).

But while the spread may not have changed much since the adjustment following the LeBron news, the over/under has been on the move for most of the morning. And sharps have been at the root of the cause for that.
