Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

The Los Angeles Lakers match up with the Washington Wizards for the first time this season and I’ve prepared a same game parlay. Just a couple of days ago I managed to land a +827 same game parlay on the Jazz vs Trail Blazers game.

Continue reading below to see my bet, but also don’t forget to check our predictions on the side and total for the rest of Friday’s 10-game slate.

Let’s jump into it!

Los Angeles Lakers 1-10 win margin (+175)

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope over 14.5 points (-104)

Kyle Kuzma to record 10+ rebounds (+168)

Parlay odds: +1359

Los Angeles Lakers 1-10 win margin (+175)

Consistency has been a real issue for the Wizards lately. They haven’t been able to connect 2 wins since mid-January and they find themselves 1.5 games back from the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference as a result. Getting Kristaps Porzingis to finally make his debut has been a plus for them, but even he couldn’t stop them from losing against the Clippers earlier this week. With just 6 wins in their last 20 games, it’s no wonder the Wiz are 4-point underdogs even against the Lakers. Washington has also failed to cover the spread in 9 straight games against Western Conference opponents. Meanwhile, time is also running out for the Lakers. This is pretty much a must-win game for the home team because its schedule gets more difficult down the stretch, so look for LeBron James and Russell Westbrook to play some inspired basketball.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope over 14.5 points (-104)

Playing against the team that traded him will definitely be extra motivation for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. He has been on a scoring tear, averaging 17.6 points per game in his last 10 outings while shooting extremely well at 48% from the field and almost 50% from downtown. With Bradley Beal out for the season, he has stepped up his game and, together with newly acquired Kristaps Porzingis, is among the scoring leaders for this Wizards team. He has scored over 14.5 points in 4 straight games and in 5 of his last 6, which gives me added confidence in backing him. The fact that he’s going up against a defensive liability like Russell Westbrook also helps. Look for Caldwell-Pope to turn it up tonight.

Kyle Kuzma to record 10+ rebounds (+168)

Kyle Kuzma is also playing against his former team for the first time since being included in the Russell Westbrook deal this offseason. I’m sure he will go into Staples with vengeance on his mind, but I don’t think it will necessarily translate into a lot of points. Instead, I think it’s better to back him to have double-digit rebounds. The Lakers have been awful at cleaning the glass, allowing teams 55.1 rebounds per game this season and against the Rockets in their last game they started LeBron James at center, which isn’t ideal. If they do the same again tonight that’s very good news for Kuzma, who is averaging 9.5 boards per game since 2022 started. The Lakers also rank just 23rd in the NBA in offensive rebounds per game, so Kuzma can get a couple of extra boards on defense just based on that fact.
