Los Angeles Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Pick

LeBron James 35+ Points (+125) Bet $100 to collect $225 FanDuel has the best odds, click here to bet

We're going to FanDuel for this one since they've got a better price than DraftKings who are only giving us +110 for this thing. Honestly, I don't even know if I could bet the +110 knowing that someone else is giving +125 for the same bet. It would feel like I'm getting ripped off and I don't like to feel like that. Feels bad. Still, if you can't play at FanDuel but you can play at DraftKings, I won't judge you for taking what you can get. You have my word.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Prediction

A lot of people are going to say that LeBron James will never be Michael Jordan and those people are 100% correct. When LeBron never loses in the NBA Finals, come talk to me. Still, this isn't about who was better between those two. This is about LeBron James and his chase to be the NBA's all-time leading scorer. He only needs 36 tonight to be that guy. No matter how you feel about him, no one can argue that scoring more points than everyone else isn't greatness. It might not get him to MJ's level, but it does get him respect from me. I respect you LeBron James.

Now there is no real analysis for this thing other than the situation. Like 35+ points at +125 is a bad wager in my opinion. The only time it's good is in a situation like the one we're in. That's why I won't even break down game logs or opponents even though the opponent tonight is good for points. Just imagine yourself not taking this wager, watching this game, and then realizing two minutes in that LeBron is going to take 40+ shots tonight. Maybe not 40 but definitely enough to break the record. I'd be shocked if he got anywhere near this number and then didn't completely sell out to go over. Feels right.
