Basketball betting on Sunday has the Los Angeles Lakers heavily favored at home over the Sacramento Kings.
The Lakers have already shown they are the top team in the Western Conference this season and they attract a lot of attention in NBA betting. Let’s look at this basketball betting matchup.
Basketball betting scheduling information shows that this is the first game of a back-to-back for the Kings. They are at Portland on Monday. Sacramento has lost seven of the last ten games against Los Angeles according to NBA betting stats. The Lakers are 7-3 against the basketball betting line in those games. The Kings have actually had more success at Los Angeles than in Sacramento in this series according to basketball betting stats. The Lakers are only 3-2 straight up in the last five meetings at home against the Kings according to basketball betting statistics. Last season the Kings split the two meetings at Los Angeles, losing 124-101 and winning 114-113 according to basketball betting numbers.
In terms of the NBA betting total in this series we find that seven of the last ten meetings have gone over. At Los Angeles, four of the last five have gone over the basketball betting line including both games last year.
Normally in a basketball betting series you can find reasons for a team having success against another one. The Lakers have struggled more than you might think against the Kings. It could be that the Lakers suffer a letdown against the inferior opponent. After playing top Western Conference teams there is the tendency to letdown against a team like Sacramento according to basketball betting experts. The Kings are not going to be making the playoffs and other than Kevin Martin, don’t have anyone that throws fear into you. Those teams can be tough to play against sometimes and why basketball betting on this game might be interesting.
The Lakers have the huge talent edge in this game but that is why the basketball betting number is so high. Laying points in NBA betting is never easy and even though the Lakers should win this game straight up, covering the basketball betting line is another story.
