But with Stephen Curry returning for Golden State, coupled with Lakers injuries, this may finally be the time the Warriors buck the trend. The NBA basketball online betting lines still favor the hosts. But this can only mean a more profitable bet on the underdogs.

Take A Look At These Other 2 NBA Special Articles

Warriors vs Lakers ATS Pick: Warriors +2 (-110)

Curry will return with a vengeance as he boosts Golden State’s NBA odds against Los Angeles. The Warriors are 14-5 in their last 19 games when Curry plays. And he should change the complexion of this game.

Moreover, the Lakers are down four key players and could be without LeBron James, who is dealing with a bum ankle. So even if Los Angeles is 7-3 in its last 10 games against Golden State, we’d rather bet online on Golden State given its online sports betting lines: +2 on the spread and +115 on the moneyline.

The Warriors have been on a roll recently and are 4-2 on the road since the All-Star break. Los Angeles is 5-2 at home since this break but has one of the worst defensive ratings (117.2). And this is supposed to be this team’s identity. So we’d rather take the underdog, which has more momentum heading to this matchup.

Warriors vs Lakers Over/Under Pick: Under 233½ (-110)

While the Lakers’ defense has left much to be desired, expect a slow-paced playoff-like game here. This is why recent trends have the Lakers’ and Warriors’ games going under their totals. Bet online on the ‘under’.

Warriors vs Lakers Player Prop Pick: Stephen Curry Over 5 Assists (-176)

Curry’s return will mean a change in the game plan for the Lakers. They will focus most of their defensive energies on neutralizing him, which means double teams and the like. Curry could have plenty of opportunities to distribute the rock and rack up assists. Bet his assists prop to go over.
