Last Updated: May 11, 2023

To get you ready for the action at Crypto.com Arena, here are a few Warriors vs Lakers parlays to consider.

Curry has been the best player on the floor for Golden State — not that you should be surprised. The NBA’s greatest-ever shooter followed up his 31-point, 14-assist, 10-rebound triple-double by dropping a team-high 27 points in a must-win Game 5.

With Golden State still, of course, facing elimination, the onus will be on Curry to deliver once more. However, if there’s anyone who can steal his thunder, it’s James, who remains a game-changer at age 38. James had 27 and 25 points in the last two games, respectively.

At (+135) odds, I’m comfortable backing the two best players in this series to deliver with my NBA bet of the day.

Assuming Davis plays and is healthy after leaving Game 5 early with a head injury, he should cash in on this prop. He’s averaging 13.4 rebounds this series, and that number might even be a tick higher had he not gotten hurt.

For Los Angeles to have a shot at knocking off the Warriors, both Davis and James — who is averaging 4.8 assists this series, compared to 6.8 on the season — will need to be heavily involved. That means 40-plus minutes and plenty of volume for each superstar.

Additionally, I’m going with Over 221.5 points. Frankly, this total seems low. The teams have combined to hit this line in four of the five games.


Warriors vs Lakers Game 5 Parlays Preview

Is the Warriors’ dynasty over? No, at least, not yet. But it very well may be on life support with Golden State trailing 3-1 to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference semifinals.

Now, the series shifts back to the Chase Center. Ahead of a pivotal Game 5, here are some Warriors vs Lakers parlays worth considering.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 5 Best Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Best SGP (+290) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1.5 Units

  • Lakers +9.5 (-145)
  • Under 232.5 Points (-185)
  • Stephen Curry: 4+ Three-Pointers (-320)

The Warriors will play better at the Chase Center. They always do. Just look at the number: They’re 33-8 at home compared to 11-30 on the road — and that doesn’t include the postseason.

That said, Los Angeles is clearly the deeper team. Despite the obvious homecourt advantage, the Lakers should be able to limit Golden State offensively and keep this within single digits. Moreover, all four games have gone Under this projected total.

At (+290) odds, this is a great value on my NBA bet of the day.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 5 Longshot Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Longshot SGP (+1000) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Lakers +6.5 (-105)
  • LeBron James: Double-Double (-125)
  • Stephen Curry: Over 32.5 Points (+115)
  • Stephen Curry: Over 7.5 Assists (+135)

Outside of Curry, Golden State can’t count on much at the moment. The two-time MVP was brilliant in Game 4, posting his first triple-double since Nov. 1, recording 31 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds.

I have no doubt he’ll deliver again with the Warriors’ season — and possibly dynasty — on the line in Game 5. I can’t say the same for his teammates, which is why I’m going to hedge and take Los Angeles +6.5.

James is coming off a 27-point performance (his most since Game 2 against Memphis). He finished one rebound shy of a double-double.


Warriors vs Lakers Game 4 Parlays Preview

Can Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson shoot Golden State back into the series? Or will Los Angeles add to the Warriors’ road woes and grab a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinals?

To better answer those questions, let’s look at these Warriors vs Lakers parlays ahead of Game 4.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 4 Best Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Best SGP (+260) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Stephen Curry: 5+ Three-Pointers (-140)
  • Lakers: Over 108.5 Points (-300)
  • Anthony Davis: 3+ Blocks (-155)

Curry sat most of the fourth quarter of Game 3 due to the lopsided score, but he still finished with four three-pointers. It’s reasonable to think he would’ve added at least one more had he gotten his usual workload.

Davis, meanwhile, continues to wreak havoc in the paint. He blocked four shots on Saturday and is averaging 3.7 for the series. Golden State doesn’t have a true answer for the eight-time NBA All-Star, who has helped the Lakers eclipse this total in two of the first three games of this series.

At (+260) odds, the value here is great enough to make this my NBA bet of the day.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 4 Longshot Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Longshot SGP (+850) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Lakers: -3.5 (+110)
  • Under 227.5 Points (-120)
  • LeBron James: Under 27.5 Points (-155)
  • Klay Thompson: 4+ Three-Pointers (-220)

James hasn’t scored more than 25 points since Game 2 against Memphis, and yet, the seventh-seeded Lakers sit just two wins from a trip to the Western Conference finals.

On Saturday, it was Davis who paced Los Angeles in scoring with 25 points, while D’Angelo Russell matched James with 21 points, including 13 in the first quarter.

Thompson has shot well from deep (17-of-36) this series, but Golden State’s inability to consistently win on the road remains perplexing. At this point, it’s hard to trust the Warriors to go into Los Angeles and win.


Warriors vs Lakers Game 3 Parlays Preview

With the Western Conference semifinal between Golden State and Los Angeles now even at a game apiece, the series now shifts to Crypto.com Arena for a pivotal Game 3.

Ahead of that, here are some Warriors vs Lakers parlays worth considering.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 3 Best Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Best SGP (+200) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Under 227.5 Points (-120)
  • LeBron James: Over 23.5 Points (-205)

James scored 23 points on 10-of-18 shooting in Game 2 and is averaging 22.2 through eight postseason games. With the series now tied at one game apiece, it’ll be up to him to do whatever is needed to put Los Angeles in front.

Additionally, each of the first two games ended right near the projected total, however, the Lakers know they can’t outshoot Golden State or beat them in a track meet.

I’m expecting a slightly slower pace in Game 3 to round out my NBA bet of the day.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 3 Longshot Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Longshot SGP (+600) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Stephen Curry: Under 30.5 Points (-115)
  • Lakers: -3.5 (+110)
  • Anthony Davis: 45+ Points + Rebounds + Assists (+160)

Davis followed up his dominant Game 1 with a lackluster showing in Game 2, recording 11 points and seven rebounds while shooting 5-of-11. He also committed four turnovers, matching his postseason high.

Based on recent trends, Davis is due for a bounce-back effort, especially with the series shifting to Los Angeles.

Moreover, Curry is averaging a solid 23.5 points on 50% from deep this series, but Golden State may need more from the nine-time All-Star if they hope to outlast the resurgent Lakers.


Warriors vs Lakers Game 2 Parlays Preview

Just as they did in the opening round against Memphis, the Los Angeles Lakers stole Game 1 versus the Golden State Warriors. Ahead of Thursday’s Game 2, here are a few of my favorite Warriors vs Lakers parlays.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 2 Best Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Best SGP (+175) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Warriors Moneyline (-235)
  • Stephen Curry: 4+ Three-Pointers (-360)
  • Anthony Davis: Over 12.5 Rebounds (-220)

Davis had his way with Kevon Looney, Draymond Green, and whomever else Golden State threw at him in Game 1, recording 30 points, 23 rebounds, five assists, and four blocks. In doing so, Davis joined Shaquille O’Neal, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Elgin Baylor as the only players in franchise history to post a 30-20 game in the playoffs.

While I’m not sure the Warriors are capable of stopping Davis — who, for the sake of this parlay, is averaging 15 rebounds per game in the playoffs — they certainly can do a better job of containing the eight-time All-Star. They’re No. 14 in the NBA in opponents’ points in the paint.

Moreover, Curry hit six three-pointers against Los Angeles and is shooting 38.8% from deep this postseason. I like him to hit this prop and lead the Warriors to a Game 2 victory, thwarting the efforts of Davis and Co. in my NBA bet of the day.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 2 Longshot Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Longshot SGP (+900) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Anthony Davis: Over 14.5 Rebounds (+100)
  • Draymond Green: 2+ Blocks (+200)
  • Klay Thompson: Over 24.5 Points (+115)

Thompson has scored 20 points or more in six of eight games this postseason, but he’s shooting just 36% from three-point range, below his season average. That said, Thompson — who finished with 25 points in Game 1 — is capable of getting hot at any moment.

As for Green, he still managed to block two shots despite early foul trouble. He’ll have plenty more chances in Game 2 given how much Los Angeles likes to work the ball inside with Davis.


Warriors vs Lakers Game 1 Parlays Preview

Will Stephen Curry stay hot and shoot the Golden State Warriors to a 1-0 series lead, or will LeBron James and Anthony Davis team up to steal Game 1 on the road?

I’m going to tackle that question and more while introducing my favorite Warriors vs Lakers parlays for Tuesday’s Game 1.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 1 Best Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Best SGP (+240) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Warriors Moneyline (-215)
  • LeBron James: 25+ Points (-155)
  • Both Teams: Over 103.5 Points (-245)

The Warriors had the third-best home record (33-8) in the NBA during the regular season. Despite the best efforts of James, I’m going to bank on their dominance at the Chase Center continuing in what should be an up-tempo, back-and-forth Game 1.

Additionally, James averaged 22.2 points on 48.6% shooting in Round 1 against Memphis. It’s reasonable to think he can hit 25, if not more.

Moreover, with the game total set at 227 and the spread at 4.5 points, it seems fair to project that each team will score at least 104 points.

This parlay is a great all-around value at (+240) odds, making this my NBA bet of the day.

Warriors vs Lakers Game 1 Longshot Same-Game Parlay

Warriors vs Lakers Longshot SGP (+525) • DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Warriors: -4.5 (-115)
  • Stephen Curry: Over 32.5 Points (+105)
  • Anthony Davis: 40+ Points/Rebounds/Assists (-140)

Curry averaged 33.7 points on 37.8% shooting from three-point against Sacramento, and it’s a good bet he’ll stay hot in the next round against a team that allowed the sixth-most three-point attempts during the regular season.

Curry’s shooting is also a reason to bank on the Warriors covering this 4.5-point spread, despite the Lakers’ rest advantage.

With that said, Davis should make a more than tangible impact across the board. He can go off for 30 points and 10 rebounds on any given night, and he notched 2.6 assists per game during the regular season.
