LeBron James has a homecoming in Cleveland on Tuesday with the Los Angeles Lakers taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers and Donovan Mitchell. 

Anthony Davis has been dominant for the Lakers lately, but he has a tough matchup with Cleveland’s frontcourt of Evan Mobley and potentially Jarrett Allen (back, questionable). 

Here are the latest available odds for tonight's matchup.

If you’re looking to bet on some props in this game, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s where I’m leaning for Tuesday’s primetime matchup: 

Lakers vs. Cavaliers Best NBA Prop Bets

  • Anthony Davis OVER 27.5 Points
  • Lonnie Walker IV OVER 13.5 Points
  • Russell Westbrook OVER 23.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists

Anthony Davis OVER 27.5 Points

Until AD slows down, you almost have to take the OVER on his points prop. 

Davis has put up 28 or more points in six of his last nine games, and even against a good Cleveland defense, I’d expect the Lakers to feed AD early and often. 

After putting up 44 on the Milwaukee Bucks’ interior defense that features Brook Lopez and Giannis Antetokounmpo, Davis is pretty much matchup proof. He’s taking 19.9 shots per game while shooting 64.8 percent from the field in his last nine games. 

The OVER is the play for AD tonight. 

Lonnie Walker IV OVER 13.5 Points

This is a value line for Lonnie Walker IV, who has been around 14.5 and 15.5 for a good amount of the season. 

However, with the Cavs ranking first in the NBA in defensive rating, oddsmakers think the Lakers guard could take a step back tonight. 

Still, the Lakers play at the No. 2 pace in the NBA, which should give plenty of possessions for Walker and company. Walker has gone over 13.5 points in nine of his last 10 games, taking 12.7 shots per game and shooting 52.0 percent from the field. 

Russell Westbrook OVER 23.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists

I’m all over these value lines we’re getting because of Cleveland’s defense, a team that Russell Westbrook put up 19 points, three rebounds and 10 dimes against earlier this season. 

Russ has cleared 23.5 PRA in 17 of his 21 games this season, averaging 14.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game. 

With AD playing so well, I think Russ has unlocked a new level in his playmaking, averaging 8.8 assists per game over his last 14 contests.
