LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers secured an impressive game one win against the Memphis Grizzlies to become -300 favorites in the series.

A win in game two would put them in an incredibly strong scenario, but they're just about playing with house money after already taking a game on the road.

Our Action Labs data aims to derive small projected edges on player prop lines in order to build long-term success over greater sample sizes. We have high-grade ratings on some of James' props for this evening. Read on to see where we're seeing value for game two of Lakers vs Grizzlies.

LeBron James Player Props, Picks

*Odds and projections as of Wednesday morning

There are a few ways to bet on James' props in this contest, but one of the most appealing ways, according to the numbers, is by fading him on a steals + blocks line.

James is listed at 1.5 ( -190 / +145) at BetMGM in the blocks + steals market, while our numbers have him projected at a projected 1.7. Because of the pricing on the under, that side garners an 8/10 projected rating.

Alternatively, if you're okay eating a significant amount of juice, James' steals line of 1.5 (+150 / -205) is actually getting a better rating than the former. We have James projected at 0.8 steals, so even at -205 we see value on the under.

If you're someone that strictly bets based on the numbers, that play earns a 9/10 projected rating.

As always, please bet responsibly.
