It is the 2nd game of a 7-game road trip for the Lakers so they still should be fresh for this NBA betting matchup against Kevin Durant and the Thunder. Basketball betting results tell us the Lakers have won 9 of the last 10 games straight up against the Thunder but they are just 3-5-2 against the basketball odds. The teams have met only once in Oklahoma City since the Thunder moved from Seattle and that was last month as the Lakers won 107-93, covering the 7.5 point basketball odds.
Los Angles has been winning all season with an offense that is the ranked in the Top 5 in the NBA as NBA betting stats indicate. Kobe Bryant is having another great year as is Pau Gasol. The Lakers oftentimes don’t play a lot of defense but they usually play enough to win when it counts. Covering the basketball betting pointspread is another story though as the Lakers are right around the .500 mark. They are a little better on the road though in NBA betting since they are laying fewer points on a nightly basis.
Oklahoma City has been a huge basketball betting success this season. They have been excellent at home and on the road in NBA betting. Kevin Durant leads the team in scoring as basketball betting stats show. The Thunder are below average on offense and defense as basketball betting numbers indicate but they have a lot of young talent that is improving. Oftentimes the Thunder are able to score enough points to stay within the basketball betting pointspread.
There few basketball betting trends for the total tell us that the over/under is 5-5 in the last ten meetings between the two teams. Most gamblers will probably lean to the over though in this basketball betting matchup.
