DALLAS — It worked for Manu Ginobili and Jamal Crawford. It works for Lou Williams.Could Kyle Kuzma make his presence felt as a high-scoring sixth man?It’s something the Lakers are looking at as Kuzma ramps his minutes back up. On Friday night for his return from injury, the Lakers were most concerned about getting him adjusted and keeping him under 20 minutes. But long-term, as they figure out rotations, coming off the bench could become Kuzma’s regular role.Coach Frank Vogel didn’t want to lock himself into that idea, however. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs The biggest barrier Kuzma might face is his learning curve on defense.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions “Well the first thing is cohesiveness with his teammates, and obviously executing the scheme that we put in defensively with pick-and-roll coverages, with pindown coverages, the way we wanna switch, how we’re bringing help to the post,” Vogel said. “All those types of things are Basketball 101, you have to use your instincts, but each coach has a slightly different slant to all those elements of your defense. So all those things you have to learn, and with new teammates, that’s something he’s gonna have to learn, too.”DAVIS PUSHING THROUGH SHOULDER SORENESSThe Lakers faced at least a little uncertainty on Tuesday night that the soreness in Anthony Davis’ right shoulder might have kept him sidelined for that game. Friday night had no such drama, with Davis cleared to play long before tip-off, but the Lakers still took steps to keep him feeling good.Davis did not participate in the live session in Thursday’s practice in El Segundo, a precaution to help him recover. He told the media Friday afternoon at shootaround that the pain was lingering, but he wasn’t too worried.“It’s still a little sore, but I’m fine. Obviously it’s going to be like four or five days rest to let it all the way heal, just like any injury. But I want to play, so as long as I keep playing it’s going to always be a little soreness there.” Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Sometimes it makes sense to have a guy coming off the bench filling that role, and sometimes it doesn’t,” he said. “Sometimes it makes more sense to put him in the starting lineup. I don’t know the answer to that. It depends on each group. I have to see everybody play with each other, but there’s definitely value to that.”The thing Vogel likes, and something the Lakers have struggled with as they stagger All-Stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, is keeping an elite scorer in the game midway through each half.As Kuzma gets gradually worked into the rotation, Vogel won’t change his strategy with Davis and James: Davis generally plays the whole first quarter, and James generally checks in at the start of the second after three to four minutes of rest (with the pattern repeating each half).“Hopefully as Kyle gets comfortable and we get Rajon (Rondo) back, we can see some lineups where both of those guys are being rested together and we can see them playing together, which is a positive too. One of the negatives of staggering (James and Davis) is they have less minutes together.”The Lakers also got some looks with James, Davis and Kuzma in the same lineup, something all of them have suggested could be more frequent as the season goes on.
Week 13 is shaping up to be another interesting betting slate. Six different games have spreads of a field goal or less, and the seven other games have spreads of a touchdown or more. There’s also only one double-digit spread (Redskins-Panthers). Meanwhile, only one game (Chiefs-Raiders) has an over/under over 50 points (51), while four others have totals under 40. More than at any other time this season, it’ll be important for you to trust your process in an attempt to identify edges. Luckily, BetQL can help out in that area. Our subscribers can view NFL ATS picks from BetQL’s model and make the most informed, data-driven wagers possible. Let’s get into some of the Sunday slate’s top options.

You can track all NFL line movement on BetQL’s Line Movement Dashboard. Figures below calculated by wagering one unit on each touted bet with -110 spread odds.NFL Week 13 Betting Picks: Spread pick of the weekJets (-3.5) at Bengals The Jets are soaring! They’ve scored 34 points in each of their past three games and are riding a three-game winning streak into this matchup against the winless Bengals. Cincinnati has already named Andy Dalton its starting quarterback for this matchup, but it most likely won’t matter much against a surging New York defense that allowed 17 points to the Redskins in Week 11 and then just three points to the Raiders last week. The Jets even knocked Derek Carr out of that contest due to his general ineffectiveness. Sam Darnold’s passing offense is clicking, and Le’Veon Bell has a dream matchup against the NFL’s worst run defense. Further, after one or more UNDERs this season, the Bengals are 0-6 ATS (their game against the Steelers stayed under the total last week). The momentum is squarely in the Jets’ favor heading into this contest.WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endNFL Week 13 Betting Picks: Moneyline pick of the weekPatriots (-170) at Texans The Patriots are 10-1, in need of a statement win after Lamar Jackson and the Ravens have been anointed as the team to beat, and have a very frustrated Hall-of-Fame quarterback that knows their offense needs to be better. It’s hard not to trust New England’s incredible defense and believe that Brady and company will figure things out in this road contest against one of Bill Belichick’s former disciples, Bill O’Brien. Consider some of these trends working in the Patriots’ favor: New England is 23-2 in their last 25 games against terrible defenses (teams that allow six or more yards per play), 53-8 in its past 61 games against poor passing defenses (teams that allow seven or more passing yards per attempt), 28-8 in its past 36 games in which it’s coming off of a low-scoring offensive game (in which it scored 14 or fewer points), and 36-9 in its past 45 games against AFC South opponents. You can find more trends like those on BetQL’s Patriots-Texans game page, as well as updated odds, schedule analysis, injuries, and more. Per BetQL’s NFL Public Betting dashboard, the Patriots’ moneyline has received 41 percent of total bets, but a whopping 93 percent of the total money, which proves the sharps are all over New England.WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPP NFL Week 13 Betting Picks: Over/under pick of the weekVikings at Seahawks UNDER 49If you like a ground-and-pound style of football, you’re going to want to tune into this one. Minnesota ranks third in the NFL in rush-play percentage (50.2 percent) while Seattle ranks fifth (46.4 percent). While both of their passing offenses have shown bright spots at various points of the season, each team’s offensive scheme requires establishing the run. Therefore, expect the clock to keep moving without an abundance of scoring, especially since both defenses rank in the top 10 against the run (Vikings rank sixth, allowing 94.2 rushing yards per game, Seahawks rank 10th, allowing 101.5 rushing yards per game).
