Toronto Raptors DFS Notes

Fred VanVleet (right knee soreness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers. VanVleet has been dealing with soreness in his knee for a few weeks now, most recently missing Saturday's game against the Nuggets. If he cannot play Monday night, look for Scottie Barnes to once again fill the resulting void at point guard. Armoni Brooks may move into the starting lineup, but he isn't worth streaming.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James became the first NBA player to ever eclipse 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, and 10,000 assists on Sunday as he scored 31 points with seven rebounds, six assists, five triples, and one block in the Lakers loss to the Suns. It seems like LeBron breaks a new record every week as the accolades keep on coming in. It is hard to grasp the greatness that he is producing on a nightly basis, and this one was no different. King James shot 10-of-20 from the floor (5-of-11 3-pointers) and made 6-of-7 from the foul line. Unfortunately, the Lakers still got run out of the gym by the Suns, and they have now lost three of their last four games. His banana boat brother, Carmelo Anthony tried to offer some assistance, as he scored 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting (4-of-7 3-pointers) with one rebound and one assist, but it was to no avail.

Raptors vs. Lakers NBA Betting Prediction

The Raptors are 19-7 against the spread in their last 26 games against the Lakers overall and are 10-1 against the number in their last 11 games in L.A. They’ve also covered in four of their last five road games, are 7-2 against the number in their last nine games as a road favorite and are 26-10 at the window in their last 36 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. On the other side, the Lakers are just 2-6-1 against the spread in their last nine games overall and are 1-3-1 at the window in their last five games as an underdog.
