The Los Angeles Lakers can make you some money.

The Los Angeles Lakers were able to take a comfortable 2-1 lead in the series against the Portland Trail Blazers. They were led behind a dominant performance from LeBron James who posted a stat line of 38 points 12 rebounds and 8 assists. Lebron also knocked in 4 three-pointers shooting 50% from the three-point line.

Taking a look at the board today a few props stick out to me. Danny Green’s over-under on three-pointers made tonight is 1.5. He has gone over in 2 of the 3 games this series and has attempted an average of 5.3 three-pointers per game, mostly wide open.

Considering LeBron scored 38 points the other night, Portland may look to collapse on James forcing someone else to beat them which could possibly lead to more shots and opportunities for Danny Green and others. Considering Danny played 31 minutes in a victory last game, he should see lots of run again tonight.

LeBron James will be looking to drive to the basket frequently tonight, while also creating open shots for the rest of the team at will.

If you take a look back at prop bets for the first 2 games of the series, Danny Green’s over-under on 3 pointers made was still over or under 1.5, however, the juice on these bets was extremely high according to The Action Network; with the juice being -167 for game 1 and -186 for game 2.

This tells me it’s more than likely for Green to knock down 2 three’s in any game this series. After taking into account all those factors I would strongly lean Danny Green Over 1.5 three-pointers made at -125, as he can easily sink in 4 or 5 tonight. This is my favorite play of the day.

The second prop bet I would target tonight is Damian Lillard under 4.5 three-pointers (-110).

If you take a look at the way the Lakers have played Lillard after game 1 it has changed tremendously.

Next. Why Alex Caruso must start. dark

They have shown very high on every pick and roll making it tough for Lillard to attempt deep 3’s or any 3’s at all. Playing high on Lillard passed the three-point line has been a huge key of the Lakers defense. I believe the Lakers will force the ball out of Lillard’s hands and make someone else beat them. Taking a stab on the under here should lead to some cash.
