The Brooklyn Nets play the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

The game tips off at 10 p.m. and can be seen on TNT.

Kyrie Irving (back) is expected to play on Thursday, but the Nets remain without Kevin Durant (hamstring), along with Iman Shumpert (hamstring), Nic Claxton (right knee tendinopathy), Spencer Dinwiddie (ACL surgery) and Reggie Perry (G League). Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot is questionable due to right knee soreness.

The Lakers are down Anthony Davis as the result of a calf strain.

Advice and prediction

Anytime Durant isn’t playing, the over on Irving’s points prop is in play. He has hit the over on BetMGM‘s prop for Thursday’s game in three of his last four without Durant. Not to mention, it’s a national TV game and Irving going against his old teammate, LeBron James.

Joe Harris’ scoring prop isn’t always an easy one, but with Los Angeles’ interior defense, Brooklyn will need to look to him a lot; and they should feeling comfortable with doing so — he’s shooting 51.1% from three this month.

Prediction: Lakers 128, Nets 121

UPDATE: Irving and Luwawu-Cabarrot have both been cleared to play against the Lakers.
