The Dallas Mavericks got Luka back while the Lakers are still dealing with a boatload of injuries, which includes LeBron being listed as questionable with an ankle issue. If LeBron and others play the Lakers will have value in the underdog role but at the time of this publish, I have to lean toward the Mavs and the small chalk. The Lakers don't have enough bodies to put money on at the moment.
