The LA Lakers have been one of the top teams in NBA history. However, the Lakers have turned into one of weaker teams in the league. Kobe Bryant has finally hung up his shoes and the Lakers, at the moment, are enduring a period of uncertainty. But we're talking about the Lakers so it's only a matter of time before they make the right moves and are challenging at the top once again. But how long will this resurgence take? The Lakers, when D'Angelo Russell plays to his potential, can beat anyone in the league.
Russel shows signs that he has what it takes to play at the very top level, but it might be too much to expect him to bring the Lakers from oblivion. Nick Young has also proven that he's an inconsistent talent. There's a lot of unanswered questions in LA, which makes them a tricky unit to bet on regularly. But where there's a will, there's a way.

How to Make Money Betting on the LA Lakers
Gone are the days of placing bets on how many points Kobe might drop or massive spreads.
D'Angelo Russel is a great player but will undoubtedly take time to really make an impact in the league. As Kobe Bryant departs, the team will have to come through adversity, but it's an opportunity for their young players to take the lead without having to always rely on, and look for, Kobe.
The Lakers, to start the 2016-17 season, will be massive underdogs in pretty much every game so look for unique bettin opportunities from the onset. They'll have a lot to prove next year and we definitely believe their win total will increase by at least 10 to 15.
