Now, we are fully in the conference finals with two teams from each conference battling to be the champion of their conference. The two teams who qualify as the champion of their conference would face each other at the NBA championship Finals which starts this month. We would be looking at betting tips for Thursday’s match.
On Thursday, we have Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets. The Lakers already lead the series, but they have to win 3 more games before earning the Conference title. Thursday is Game 4, and both teams have 2 games before Thursday, and no matter how the games turn out, neither of the teams have a solid spot by Thursday. Lakers led last Friday’s game by 12 points (126-114), making it a very confident win. Just how confident they can remain winning would depend on the outcome of their immediate games. Both teams would easily score 100 points or more in a game.
LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers will go up against Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals on Sunday night, then face again in Game 3 on Thursday (Philippine time). The Lakers currently lead the series after a double-digit victory in Game 1, with the Nuggets attempting to pick up their first win in the best-of-seven clash.
They are a few injuries to players that both teams will be worried about. James (groin injury), Rajon Rondo (back injury), and Dion Waiters (groin injury) listed as probable and doubtful for the Lakers. While Will Barton (knee injury) remains out for Denver Nuggets.
For betting tips for the game, a total point for Game 3 is set at 214.5 points, and that might seem low considering how good the two teams can be on the offense. So expect over 214.5 (-110) to hit in Game 3.
