The Los Angeles Clippers take on the Los Angeles Lakers while looking to make it ten straight victories in the series head-to-head. These two teams met up twice already this year with the Clippers taking both prior meetings holding the Lakers under 105 in both meetings.
For this contest, the Clippers are installed as 5-point road favorites. They take on a Lakers squad fresh off two upset victories, first against the Memphis Grizzlies Friday night, followed by a win Sunday night against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Let's dive into the two bets I'm making for my NBA same game parlay in Clippers vs. Lakers.
NBA Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks
The Parlay: (+235)
- Lakers Under 112.5 Points (-120)
- LeBron James Under 29.5 Points (+125)
Los Angeles Lakers Under 112.5 Points
The Clippers have excelled on the defensive end ranking fourth in opponent points per game, opponent field goal percentage, and have really been able to limit the Lakers efficiency in the first two meetings of the season.
Focusing in on the head-to-head's this season, and even going so far back to the 2020-21 season over the last nine games, there have been very low scores.
Throughout that nine game stretch in the head-to-head's the Lakers have averaged 102.8 points per game. They have not gotten into an offensive groove in any matchup struggling from the floor while averaging 43.6% shooting from the floor, and 30% from beyond the arc. This is a tough stat to try and fade.
LeBron James Under 29.5 Points
James leads the Lakers in scoring, and ranks sixth in the Association averaging 29.8 points per game. He's shooting over 50% from the field and averaging a career high in attempts per contest at 22.7.
His points total is set extremely high for this contest. Looking into head-to-head stats since becoming a Laker, and through 12 games against the Clippers while in a Lakers uniform, not once has he surpassed this set total. Of course some of these games had Anthony Davis playing and featured a totally different Lakers roster, however through those 12 games he's averaging 23.2 points.
In what projects to be a low scoring contest, and searching for some value in taking a more favorable number, the lowest number offered on this book is under 29.5 at +125, so we will take that to spice up this two prop SGP.
