Record wise; this Los Angeles team has been among the worst performers to have ever played in the NBA for six years.

Within all this time, they only managed to get a dismal score of 163-329. However, many hope that all that will change especially after the team recently signed LeBron James and Antony Davis.

After the change, the team automatically becomes the betting favorites to go within the upcoming NBA championship.

Best Lakers Betting Predictions

The Los Angeles team made headlines this summer by the picks they recently made. And now the dynamic duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis might be the best combination they have never had for a while. As we all know, James and Davis are basketball giants.

They will most likely be enough to catapult the Lakers to the top in the Western Conference this season. At the moment, Davis is the exact player that LeBron needs on his side. Because of this, there is a high chance James will be pumped up for baskets in the coming 2019-20 season.

Even if the Clippers landed Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, all eyes will be on LeBron James as it is the norm. As such, they are not in a position where they can disappoint. It, therefore, makes them the perfect team to bet against the spread and to make prop bets as well.

With arguably the best combo (Lebron and Davis) yet, LA Lakers cannot afford to fall short of victory on the Western Conference. Most people have high hopes for the Lakers, and there is no doubt they will make impressive picks perfect for Over/under bets. All this makes LA Lakers betting even more interesting, as the chances of winning are high.

History of LA Lakers

When the team was officially formed, it was initially known as Detroit Gems, and they played for the National Basketball League. Their name changed to Lakers after moving to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1947 then later on to Los Angeles.

In the 1979 NBA draft, they selected Magic Johnson, and that was the start of the period when the team was dominating for years on. Johnson was later joined by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy. This combination of players successfully got the team to eight appearances in the NBA finals over the next decade. On top of all, five of these were NBA championships.

Soon after the retirement of Abdul-Jabbar and Johnson in 1989 and 1991, things quickly changed, in a bad way. They still made it to the playoffs, but they did no participate in the postseason play. They were neither a part of the NBA finals for quite some time.

All that changed again from 1999-2000 season. The new coach Phil Jackson took control of the team featuring Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. Although O’Neal was not part of the team down the road, a new team with Kobe Bryant advanced to the 2008 NBA finals.

Date of Creation

The Lakers team was founded in 1946.

Best Seasons

The best seasons for the team was in the ‘80s when they had Magic Johnson and Abdul-Jabbar. They managed to win five almost-consecutive NBA Championship titles (1980,1982,1985,1987 and 1988).
