Game 768.

LA, which finished the regular season a bit lackluster, will come out here in Game 1 of this series with something to prove. Not just to the rest of the West, but also to the top teams in the East. LeBron James will shine here. Take the Lakers. Thank you.

Guaranteed Picks

Guaranteed packages automatically give you a credit if the package does not win or profit. A credit for the full purchase price is automatically issued after picks are graded and verified.

For example, if you purchase a $39.95 package that doesn’t win, you’ll get a $39.95 credit that’s good for any future purchases on our site. Credits are usually issued within hours of a game’s conclusion, but please allow a few hours for final verification.

To use your credits, log in to your account and add another package or pass to your cart. Credits will automatically reduce what you owe. Any remaining balance will be settled through our payment system, with any leftover credits applying towards future purchases.
