Basketball betting odds have the Los Angeles Lakers favored on the road facing the Detroit Pistons on Thursday.
Basketball betting notes tell us that Los Angeles is in the midst of a 7-game road trip and Detroit will be their third stop. The Lakers have struggled in their last 10 games with Detroit recently going 2-8 straight up and 4-6 against the NBA betting pointspread.
Basketball betting scheduling information tells us that the Lakers are in the first half of a back-to-back as they are at New Jersey tomorrow. The Lakers have had a miserable time in Detroit in recent seasons. They have lost their last nine games at Detroit and they are 2-7 against the basketball odds in those games. Basketball betting results show that the teams met earlier this season in Los Angeles and the Lakers lost a rare home game as the Piston won 106-95, covering the 9.5 point basketball odds.
The Lakers have actually been a better team on the road versus the basketball betting number than at home. Los Angeles is laying fewer points on the road and they have been more successful covering the NBA betting pointspread. Basketball betting stats show that the Lakers have a very potent offense led by Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol and their defense is usually good enough to survive.
The Pistons have been nothing short of a disaster at home this season against the basketball betting pointspread. They have been abysmal at home all year long versus the basketball betting number. The Pistons have had a terrible time scoring points, ranking near the bottom of the league as basketball betting numbers show but their defense has been pretty good which keeps them in many games. Richard Hamilton is back in the starting lineup and that has been a very good thing for Detroit in terms of NBA betting.
Four of the last five games overall in this series have gone under the NBA betting total. At Detroit, three of the last five have gone under the basketball betting total.
