Without a doubt, the match between the “Dallas” and “Lakers” deserves the status of the central, and we have prepared a prediction for this action, which will be held on January 10. How will the meeting end?
Los Angeles Lakers 30-7 (19-17-1 ATS)
The victory of the “Lakers” can already be called a trend because the club smashes everyone in a row and simply leaves no chance for rivals in the struggle for the first line of the Western Conference. As you can see, the right people gathered in one place.
“Lakers” gave out six matches without a defeat, though five of them were in the home arena. With high-profile victories, one can only note a successful performance in a duel against the same Dallas (108-95). Then Frank Vogel’s wards played neatly and reliably in defense, which helped to take revenge.
There is no doubt that LeBron James and the company are preparing for this confrontation, although the participation of Anthony Davis, who in the last meeting unsuccessfully landed on his back and failed to finish the match, is in question.
Dallas Mavericks 23-14 (19-17-1 ATS)
Mavericks was a real discovery of this season because the team has turned from an outsider into one of the top clubs of the Western Conference. Of course, the stellar bunch of Luk Donchich and Kristaps Porzingis played a key role in this, though it is impossible not to mention the game of Seth Curry, Bob Marjanovich or Tim Harduay.
“Dallas” kept the bar high for a long time, but now the situation has changed a little for the worse, and all because of problems with the composition. In the last meeting, the team of Ricky Carlisle insultingly lost to Denver in their native walls (106-107). As you can see, sometimes luck also makes adjustments to the plans, and this time it helped the “nuggets”.
The Cowboys will again face a tough match because the leader of the West in the person of the Lakers is coming to visit, so a spectacular confrontation is expected.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction
It is difficult to say now that Dallas is in optimal shape, even with Luke Doncic in action. Ricky Carlisle’s team seems to be acting in the right way, but there is not enough reliability in defense. The Lakers are going to visit to prove again who is currently the strongest team in the West and, in our opinion, the Lakes team will succeed, therefore we offer a bet on their victory.
