NBA Finals Odds – Los Angeles Lakers visit Orlando

November 30, 2010 NBA Basketball

NBA Finals odds on Sunday have the Orlando Magic favored in Game 5 against the Los Angeles Lakers as the Magic will be trying to send this NBA Finals betting series back to Los Angeles.

The home team in this series has done well straight up but covering the NBA Finals odds has been another story. Here is a look at Game 5 between the Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic.

NBA Finals odds in the first two games in Los Angeles saw the Lakers as solid favorites but L.A. was only able to cover the spread once, despite winning both games. With two evenly matched teams it is possible to win the game and not cover the NBA Finals betting number and that has happened in this series. The Lakers have actually been a better team this season on the road in terms of the NBA betting pointspread. The Lakers are overvalued at home but on the road they can at least be a decent wager versus the NBA Finals odds. Actually, anytime the Lakers are getting points in NBA Finals odds they are worth a look. Before this NBA Finals betting series began the Lakers were 23-9-2 ATS in their last 34 games as an underdog. In this NBA Finals odds series the underdog and the road team have held their own.

The NBA Finals odds total at the sportsbook has been interesting in this series. The Game One total was 205.5 in NBA Finals odds but after getting hammered with money on the under the oddsmakers finally reacted and made the totals below 200 when the NBA Finals betting series moved to Orlando. Both teams have actually gone under the NBA Finals odds sportsbook number recently.

Looking back a little bit as we consider NBA Finals odds at the online sportsbook we find that the Lakers have done pretty well at Orlando through the years. Before this series began, the Lakers had won 7 of the last 10 games at Orlando. Sportsbook gamblers seem to only want to remember the regular season meeting when the Magic won 106-103 but traditionally the Lakers have played very well at Orlando.
