Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Lakers Opening Night Odds: How To Bet, How To Watch, & Start Time

The second game of the NBA’s opening night features many of the league’s superstars and several of the most interesting preseason storylines. The Lebron James-Steph Curry head-to-head matchups are often legendary and we should be in for a treat as these two square off mano-a-mano once again.

Sportsbooks see this as a one-possession game when all is said and done. That’s likely due to Curry’s other-worldly firepower and the wait-and-see approach regarding the chemistry on the updated Lakers squad. After a Nets-Bucks appetizer, this is sure to be an extremely satisfying main course on NBA opening night.

Golden State Warriors Preview

This may not be the same Warriors squad you either loved or hated in the mid-2010’s, but the pieces are still in place for this to be a very formidable squad in 2021-2022. MVP Candidate Steph Curry will still be leading an offense that will need to quickly find an identity and locate reliable scoring options when Curry is not on the floor.

Klay Thompson won’t be back until at least December, so the Warriors are hoping Jordan Poole can take another big step similar to last season. Poole’s per-36 minutes stats last year were astounding (22.3 points, 3.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds), so with a starting gig for the foreseeable future, he is the wildcard that could boost this offense. With the Andrew Wiggins vaccination drama in the rear-view mirror, he will be called upon as the de facto second scorer on offense.

In the Eastern Conference, you have the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers. But if you are looking for drama in the West, this is the team for you. Last I checked, the NBA still only played with one basketball, so how Frank Vogel decides to spread his usage among Lebron James, Anthony Davis and newcomer Russell Westbrook is one of the bigger mysteries heading into this NBA season.

Mix in a supporting cast (Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, DeAndre Jordan, Kent Bazemore) that makes Betty White seem like a spring chicken, and you have a recipe for plenty of in-season peaks and valleys. Still, the Lakers are the favorites to reach the NBA Finals (+400) in the West, but the journey to get there should certainly be an interesting one.

Proudest husband and dad you will ever find. When I'm not with my wife and two kids I split my time working in higher ed, grinding DFS and season-long, collecting silver age comics, studying behavioral economics, and drinking coffee. I once played Pat Connaughton in an actual NBA DFS lineup for money. Astros, Rockets, and Texans for life.
