FD No Sweat First Bet

Is it too soon to say that the Los Angeles Lakers are looking like the team that won the championship in 2020? Maybe, but it is great to see them winning again after a horrid start to the season. They travel to Washington to face the Wizards on Sunday after pulling off a 133-129 upset victory against the Bucks on Friday night. For the Lakers to be an underdog against a Wizards team who have lost 4 out of their last 5 games is kind of surprising. The Lakers have won 4 of their past 5 games, so the momentum is definitely on their side.

The Wizards have allowed around 119 points per game in the past 5 games, which ranks in the bottom 5 in that span. The worry is the injury report. It’s almost an everyday thing that both Anthony Davis and LeBron James are listed and then we discover their status 10 minutes before tip-off. Anthony Davis has been playing like an MVP, scoring 25 or more points and at least 10 rebounds in the past 9 games. After his 44-point performance against the Bucks, I expect him to dominate against the Wizards, If Davis and James play the Lakers should push their winning streak to 3 in a row and get the outright underdog win on the road.
