Match Betting Previews

Los Angeles Lakers versus Memphis Grizzlies - Tuesday, February 28th

The LA Lakers seem to be in a whole different world after their trade sending Russell Westbrook off the team.

They gained three valuable players who are now contributing on a nightly basis.

There is now a true path for the Lakers to make the playoffs and salvage the season.

LeBron James will need to be monitored, as his ankle issues seem to be continuing.

After a comeback win against Dallas, LeBron was walking gingerly and favouring his other side.

Regardless, the Lakers now have a healthy Anthony Davis back, which helps them in every way possible.

Their defense and shooting have improved tremendously with the acquisitions of DLo, Malik Beasley, and Jarred Vanderbilt.

They are going to be a tough train to stop in the upcoming weeks and look for them to take this game personally against Memphis.

The Memphis Grizzlies are not in their best suits at the moment, and they are finally starting to gain traction in the past week or so.

Memphis has been dealt a bad hand after getting into a fight with sideline celebrity Shannon Sharpe at the Staples centre just a little under a month ago.

They are tinkering with the best of them, and Ja Morant will need to prove he can handle the pressure one more time.

Prediction - Los Angeles Lakers +5.5 and the over on total points in this game.

Philadelphia 76ers versus Milwaukee Bucks - Saturday, March 4th

Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers are heading to Milwaukee for a battle of the two elite teams in the Eastern conference.

Two squads with dominant big men, the status of Giannis Antetounkoumpo is unknown.

He has been resting and will hopefully suit up for a clash of two MVP Front Runners this Saturday.

Primetime with all of the lights being reflected, we will experience a true treat of basketball.

The Bucks are the hottest team in the league right now, with or without Giannis, speaking to their depth.

Prediction - Take Milwaukee to win this game and the over on total points scored.
