Basketball Betting – Lakers vs. Knicks

February 7th, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting odds on Monday show the Los Angeles Lakers favored on the road against the New York Knicks. The basketball schedule tells us that the Lakers are in the middle of their six-game road trip with tough games remaining at Toronto, Boston and Cleveland.

Basketball gaming trends show that the Lakers have won 7 of the last 10 games against the Knicks but they are only 4-6 against the basketball odds in those games. The Lakers are a very public team and although they win games straight up, they usually don’t cover the basketball betting line more than half the time. At New York, the Lakers have won three of the last four meetings against the Knicks. They are 2-2 against the basketball odds in those games.

7 of the last 10 games between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting total. That over trend is not quite as strong at New York though with the over/under going 2-2 in the last four games. Earlier this season, the teams met in Los Angeles and the Lakers just got by the Knicks 116-114 as basketball betting results show.

The Lakers have been the top scoring team in the NBA for most of the season as basketball betting shows. Kobe Bryant is one of the top scorers in the NBA as basketball stats show. He has been averaging about 26 points per game this season. The problem for the Lakers has been defense as they rank outside of the Top 10 as NBA betting statistics show.

New York doesn’t have quite the offense that the Lakers have but they are still in the Top 10 as basketball betting numbers show. The Knicks have a very poor defense though, ranking near the bottom of the league as basketball betting stats tell us. New York has been a decent team though at home versus the basketball betting line and getting points versus the Lakers could be an attractive wager for basketball gamblers.
