LeBron ejected in Lakers win
There were shocking scenes in the NBA as LeBron James was ejected from the LA Lakers’ 121-116 win over the Pistons (who covered) for landing a heavy blow on Isaiah Stewart’s face, sparking a huge confrontation.

Best Bet of the Day
New York Giants +11 vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
8:15 pm ET, ESPN
The Bucs lost outright to Washington as huge favorites last week, and the week before they lost to a depleted Saints team. Tampa Bay is really missing veteran wide receiver Antonio Brown. The Giants are a great team to back getting this many points. They have been a lot better than most people realize. Just two weeks ago they played on Monday Night Football and lost to the Chiefs by only 3 points. Read our same game parlay (+998 odds!) for tonight’s game.
