While the straight up basketball betting numbers favor the Lakers the bet on basketball pointspread numbers do not. Let’s take a look at the game between Los Angeles and Oklahoma City.
Bet on basketball trends show that the Lakers have won 9 of the last 10 games outright against Oklahoma City but Los Angeles is only 3-5-2 against the basketball odds in those games. Bet on basketball information tells us that this will be the Lakers first trip to Oklahoma City since the Thunder moved from Seattle. The teams have met once this season but that wins in L.A. and the Lakers defeated the Thunder 105-98 but they did not cover the basketball betting pointspread. That game also went well under the basketball betting total of 219.
The Thunder have not won that many games straight up this season but they have made serious money for gamblers who bet on basketball. The Thunder have been excellent against the basketball betting pointspread both at home and on the road. Oklahoma City always seems to be getting big points in bet on basketball lines and they seem to sneak under the number more often than not. Kevin Durant is a superstar playing on a bad team but he can win games on his own and he continues to get better. Jeff Green is also getting better and can impact the basketball odds.
The Lakers have the best record in the Western Conference. They have a potent offense that is first in the league as bet on basketball stats show. Kobe Bryant is again having a great year and Pau Gasol is also playing superbly. Los Angeles is nothing special against the bet on basketball number though. They are below .500 against the bet on basketball pointspread both at home and on the road. Defense is the problem for L.A. in covering numbers as they are in the bottom half of the league in points allowed as bet on basketball stats show.
