Basketball Betting – Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers

February 16th, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting doesn’t get any better than on Christmas Day when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Boston Celtics in a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals. This NBA betting contest can be seen on ABC television and will attract a lot of attention. Let’s take a look at the basketball matchup between the Celtics and Lakers.

Basketball experts believe that Boston and the Lakers are again the two best teams in the league. NBA betting information shows that the Celtics look even better than they did a year ago when they dominated the league. The Lakers also look much better as basketball betting experts see it since they have a healthy Andrew Bynum in the middle to support Kobe Bryant.

Basketball scheduling information shows that this is the first of a five-game homestand for the Lakers while it is the first of a four-game road trip for the Celtics. It is also the first of a back-to-back for the Celtics as they play at Golden State tomorrow as the basketball schedule shows.

This basketball matchup contrasts the Lakers great offense which has been leading the league for much of the season as basketball stats show against the Boston defense which has been leading the league. Boston can also score, ranking in the Top 10 in offense as basketball statistics have it. The Lakers though, rank in the bottom half of the league in defense and that could be the difference in this NBA betting matchup.

NBA betting information shows that last season the teams went six games in the NBA Finals but they also met twice in the regular season. Basketball stats show that in those regular season meetings the Celtics won both games by big margins, winning 110-91 at Los Angeles and 107-94 at Boston. Overall, the Celtics are 8-2 against the basketball odds in the last 10 games against the Lakers.
