Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Lakers - Basketball Betting Odds

Basketball betting on Thursday night has the Los Angeles Lakers favored at home against the Golden State Warriors in a game that can be seen on TNT television.

Gamblers who bet on basketball always like to consider the Lakers in high profile games and that could be the case again on Thursday.

Basketball betting scheduling information tells us that the Warriors are playing the first half of a back-to-back as they are at Philadelphia tomorrow night. The basketball betting trends lean to the Lakers a little bit in this matchup. Los Angeles has won 8 of the last 10 games against Golden State and they are 6-4 against the basketball odds. At Los Angeles, the Lakers have won four of the last five against the Warriors although they are only 2-3 against the basketball odds. The teams have met already three times this season and the Lakers have won all three games and covered the basketball betting pointspread in two of the three. The game at Los Angeles back in December was a rout as the Lakers won 130-113 as basketball betting results show.

Golden State has not done much right this season either straight up or against the basketball betting number. The Warriors have been awful on the road this season against the basketball betting pointspread. Golden State plays no defense and that is not the way to win or cover the basketball betting pointspread in road games. Gamblers who bet on basketball know that the Warriors can score but that means nothing against the Lakers who can score even more.

Los Angeles has been about a .500 team at home this season against the bet on basketball pointspread. Kobe Bryant is having another superb season and Pau Gasol is also playing very well. The Lakers should not have any trouble with the Warriors but the basketball betting number will be high in this Thursday matchup.

With these two teams you would think the over would be a strong play but it is only 5-5 in the last ten meetings. At L.A. three of the last five games have gone over the basketball betting total.
