Odds for LeBron James’ Lakers to make 2019 Playoffs

The NBA All Star break has arrived and while the focus for gamers this weekend is college basketball, National Hockey League action and the Alliance of American Football one can count on the Vegas books to throw a jump ball to the wagering menu. With the NBA trade deadline having passed and a one-week absence of Association contests one of the strategically positioned NBA Props involving a Los Angeles team. One that resides just a four to five hour drive from the Strip and a team that has the backing of many LV locals, the Lakers.

The World’s Largest Race and Sportsbook, Westgate of Las Vegas, has opened a Magic Johnson and LeBron James proposition inviting a yes or no wager on whether the Lakers will make the playoffs this 2018-19 season.

Yes or No – that is the prop question

The SuperBook opened odds on the Lakers making the playoffs before the season’s first tip at odds backing “Yes -450 and “No” at +350.

Los Angeles has reached the Fake Midseason Classic with a 28-29 record. Their loss to Eastern Conference non-postseason contender Atlanta this past week place the Lakers are below .500 for the first time since they were 5-6 on Nov. 7.

King James’ teammates are two slots out of the playoffs if the postseason started today resting in 10th place in the Western Conference standings

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook reopened odds on LA yesterday with a prop bet of “Yes” and “No” with money line odds of -110 to be one of the top-eight teams in the West at the close of the regular season.
