Lakers F Kyle Kuzma
The Pick: Over 21 points (+110)
Kuzma is a proven scorer, and he’s seen a nice boost in playing time recently. He’s played at least 34 minutes in six of his past seven games, and he’s scored at least 22 points in five of them.
The Lakers are in a great spot today vs. the Charlotte Hornets, who are coming off an overtime game and are playing on the second leg of a back-to-back.
LA is implied for 114.25 points, which is the second-highest mark on the slate.
As long as Kuzma continues to play big minutes, he should continue to score the basketball at a high level. I love getting this prop at better than even money, but wouldn’t pay more than -130 juice.
