These are the two top teams in the Western Conference and most basketball betting experts believe one of these two teams will make the NBA Finals. Bet on basketball odds are very close on this TNT televised matchup on Thursday. The bet on basketball situation favors the Spurs as the Lakers are playing the final game of a three-game road trip and they are in a back-to-back situation having played last night at Houston. The Spurs are playing the final game of a four-game homestand.
Bet on basketball trends favor the Lakers a little bit in this series. The Lakers have won 7 of the last 10 games between the two teams and they are 6-4 against the basketball odds. At San Antonio, the Spurs have won three of the last four meetings but the teams have split against the basketball odds.
The teams have played twice this year with the home team winning each time. The Lakers won 99-85 at home while the Spurs won 112-111 in San Antonio.
The Lakers have the best offense in the NBA as bet on basketball stats show led by Kobe Bryant. That doesn’t mean they always cover the basketball betting pointspread though. The Lakers actually have a losing record at home against the bet on basketball pointspread. The Lakers are a very public team and oftentimes are laying too many points. They are a better bet on the road where they are usually not laying as many points and they have a winning record against the bet on basketball number.
San Antonio has not been a very good team versus the bet on basketball line at home this season. They are below .500 versus the basketball betting number despite being a good home team straight up. The Spurs win with defense as they rank in the Top 5 in the league as bet on basketball stats show. Their offense is usually just good enough to do the job since their defense is so good.
Seven of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. At San Antonio, three of the last four games have gone under the bet on basketball total.
