Warriors vs. Lakers Game 6 Betting Odds

There are opportunities galore for either side with the Lakers becoming a tepid home favorite at -2.5 for the attempted series clinch. Bettors who like the Lakers have to win by little more than a field goal, or one three-pointer, on the wager. Backers of the Warriors get a good value of +120 on the moneyline, -110 on the spread.

The Over-Under is 221, one of the lowest in the series. Books have incorporated a defensively-taut fourth quarter into this projection. Four of the five games have ended in the 220s. None have reached 230. The lowest score, 205, came on the Lakers’ home court in the last game. They won it 104-101.

Here are current Game 6 odds from the best sports betting apps.

Who’ll Step Up in Game 6?

The Invisible Man has stepped up in prominent roles for the last two games, for different teams.

It was Lonnie Walker of the Lakers in Game 4, coming off the bench to score all 15 of his points in the fourth quarter with the Lakers winning by 3.

It was Draymond Green for the Warriors in Game 5. He has been hot and cold throughout the playoffs, and in this one, he was hot. Green notched 20 points, 10 rebounds, and was 7-for-11 from the floor. This was the first time since 2017 that he recorded two 20-point games in one playoff season.

Warriors vs. Lakers Game 6 Prop Bets

Here is just a sampling of the prop bets offered for Friday night’s Game 6:

Player Points Props at DraftKings

  • Andrew Wiggins 17.5 (Over -125, Under -105)
  • LeBron James 26.5 (Over -120, Under -110)
  • Steph Curry 31.5 (Both sides -115)
  • Draymond Green 9.5 (Over +100, Under -130)
  • Klay Thompson 205 (Over -120, Under -110)

Points + Rebounds

  • Wiggins 22.5 (Over -105, Under -125)
  • Davis 38.5 (Over -110, Under -120)
  • Draymond Green 17.5 (Over +100, Under -130)
  • James 31.5 (Over =125, Under-105)
  • Curry 37.5 (Over -125, Under -105)

Game 6 Props at FanDuel

Here are some fun betting options at FanDuel:

  • Team to trail by at least 10 points and win:
  • Lakers +500, Warriors +550

Both teams to score in the first minute:

  • Yes+140
  • No -188

Both teams did in Game 5.

Draymond Green Props

  • Draymond Green to record 10 points +110
  • Draymond Green 6 or more rebounds +310

To Lead After Every Quarter

  • Warriors +380
  • Lakers +250
  • Any Other Result -142.

This is revealing. FanDuel Sportsbook Golden State +138 to lead after each quarter of Game 5, which it did.  Here, both teams are longshots to be ahead after each quarter, and the -142 favorite is that neither will do it. A tie at the end of a quarter is an “Any Other Result” on this wager.

The prop reveals the expectation of a tight game, maybe one with a two-point margin in the final minute, with the noise deafening.

Warriors vs. Lakers Game 6 Predictions

Since stealing home-court advantage in Game 1, the Lakers have played like a team trying to win the series in this game. They were not close in Games 2 and 5 on the road, and they vigorously protected home court in Games 3 and 4.

They don’t want to go back to San Francisco for Game 7. Los Angeles will treat this as a must-win and perhaps do just enough.

This also should be a big game for Curry. I don’t like the 31.5 bar but will try an alternate line of 26.5 and try to find something else to link him with for an alternate-line parlay before tipoff.
