NBA - Lakers @ Knicks
(NBA) LA Lakers vs. New York, 01/31/2023 7:30 PM, Score: 129 - 123
Total: 230.50 | -112.00 Over
Result: Win
Both teams trend to the over and though the Knicks have seen the under in 3 of the last 6, those matchups were against better defenses than what the Lakers have shown this season (ranked 27th in defensive metrics). This line has jumped already to 232 on some books, and rightfully so and could elevate if LeBron plays this game after sitting since the Boston controversial game. I'm beating the curb and taking the 230.5, as teams usually play the Lakers at a fast pace, and LeBron (if he plays) should put up good numbers in the Garden, and with the Lakers having the better FG percentage shooting than the Knicks, but the Lakers having the worse defense..... Both teams should be having a hay day scoring and playing a fast paced games as these teams usually do.

Official Play: Over 230.5
