Clippers at Lakers, Oct 20th, 2022-23 | NBA Betting Preview

20th October 2022 - preview, prediction & picks:

Los Angeles Clippers @ Los Angeles Lakers

Expected lineups/team news:


PG - John Wall

SG - Paul George

SF - Kawhi Leonard

PF - Marcus Morris Sr.

C - Ivica Zubac

  • The Clippers are looking strong and fit with no injuries to report at the time of writing. 

  • Although they retain a decent roster, the Clippers have done little to strengthen over the off-season. 32-year-old, 5 x All-Star John Wall is solid but has missed almost two of the last three seasons through injury. 

  • Croatian Ivica Zubac signed a three-year extension.

  • Moses Brown was given a two-way deal despite very few pre-season minutes played. 


PG - Russell Westbrook

SG - Kendrick Nunn

SF - LeBron James

PF - Anthony Davis

C - Damian Jones

  • Lakers have Westbrook (hamstring), Brown Jr. (back) Bryant (thumb), Schroder (thumb) Davis (back), and James (foot) out of contention at the time of writing. This leaves them with a third-tier pick at point guard as it stands. 

  • LAL have signed no less than 12 free agents since July. Securing LeBron James’ signature on August 18th was a key moment.

NBA Championship odds:

  • Los Angeles Clippers: 8.00

  • Los Angeles Lakers: 26.00


With a 3-point pre-season shooting percentage of just 28%, the Lakers are really struggling with the long-range shot. That puts them 26th of 30 NBA teams. 

A slew of injuries have not helped their prospects and the markets see this as a probable win for the Los Angeles Clippers. 

Their recent head-to-head record of LAC 4-0 LAL does not bode well for the Lakers either. Watch this space.
