The Los Angeles Lakers are 2.5-point road underdogs against the Sacramento Kings in the October 29 NBA matchup. The over-under is set at 235 points in the NBA Vegas odds.
Both teams enter this contest at 1-1. De’Aaron Fox’s 39 points was not enough for Sacramento to top Golden State.
After a 12-point loss to Denver in the season opener, Los Angeles got back on track with a 100-95 victory over Phoenix. The Lakers were powered by Anthony Davis’ 30 points and 12 rebounds against the Suns.
“We don’t give a shit about criticism about [Anthony Davis]. We don’t care. Nothing bothers us. AD doesn’t care. I don’t know if guys have figured that out. AD does not care. He’s not on social media. So he doesn’t see (that crap)… We don’t give a shit about it.”- LeBron James pic.twitter.com/c3yCtgsBUq

Here are my top NBA picks for the Lakers-Kings game.
Lakers-Kings: Best Prop Bets for October 29
There are plenty of intriguing player prop bets if you want more options than the NBA point spread. After a strong showing this summer for Team USA, this feels like a good spot for Austin Reaves to assert himself in the offense. Reaves’ points and made threes props offers plenty of appeal in this matchup.

D’Angelo Russell has been involved in more than just scoring for Los Angeles. Russell has had 4 rebounds in both of the Lakers’ games.
The guard’s rebound prop against the Kings is just 2.5. You can combine some of these on your NBA bet slip if you are interested in a Lakers-Kings same game parlay.
- NBA Player Prop Picks: Austin Reaves over 13.5 points
- NBA Player Prop Picks: Austin Reaves over 1.5 made threes
- NBA Player Prop Picks: D’Angelo Russell over 2.5 rebounds
Lakers-Kings Pick: Bet the Lake Show as a Dog
The Kings were the surprise team of 2022-23 marching to the postseason. I have some skepticism that Sacramento will be able to top last season and is in danger of slight regression now that it will not be able to sneak up on teams in 2023-24.
Los Angeles had a strong offseason with the additions of Gabe Vincent, Taurean Prince and Christian Wood among others. This looks like a good spot for the Lakers to make a statement after difficult matchups against the Nuggets and Suns.
If you are looking for an added return on your investment, combine some of the above prop bets for a nice picks and parlays for this NBA matchup on October 29. The Lakers defense has also looked solid to start the season, making the under the play on the point total.
- NBA Pick Against the Spread: Lakers +2.5
- NBA Same Game Parlay: Lakers +2.5. Under 235 points. D’Angelo Russell over 2.5 rebounds.
