Warriors Favored to Win Game 2 against the Lakers – Here’s Why

The Lakers vs Warriors playoff series is heating up, and all eyes are on Game 2, set to take place on Thursday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco. Despite the Lakers taking the series opener 117-112, the Warriors are favored to win Game 2, with a spread of -5.5 and a total of 227.5.

Interestingly, big money bettors seem to be favoring the Warriors, with 80% of the ATS money going to Golden State, despite only 51% of spread tickets being on their side. The majority of over/under tickets are also on the over (69%), but the bulk of the handle is on the under (53%).

Lakers vs Warriors Predictions

The Lakers are currently favored to win the series, with NBA odds of -175, while the Warriors sit at +145. However, with their efficient shooting from beyond the arc, the Warriors could easily turn the series around and cause an upset.

One player to watch during Game 2 is Anthony Davis, who dominated in the series opener with 30 points and 23 rebounds. He’s likely to continue his dominance in Game 2 and help keep the Warriors offense one-dimensional. On the other hand, LeBron James has been struggling with his three-point shots this postseason, shooting only 18.4% from beyond the arc. If he and the rest of the Lakers continue to struggle from deep, it may be hard for them to keep up with the Warriors offensively.

Overall, Game 2 promises to be an exciting matchup between two of the NBA’s biggest rivals. With the Warriors favored to win, it remains to be seen if the Lakers can pull off another upset or if the Warriors will tie the series. Tip-off is scheduled for 9 pm ET, and fans and sports bettors alike won’t want to miss out on the action.
