Bet on basketball action on Sunday includes an ABC televised game between the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have won 6 of the last 10 games against the Mavericks including twice earlier this season. Basketball betting odds have the Lakers solidly favored in this matchup. Wager on basketball scheduling tells us that this is the last game of a four-game road trip for the Mavericks. The Mavericks have lost four of their last five trips to Los Angeles but they are 4-1 against the basketball odds. The Lakers are always overvalued at home in terms of the gaming on basketball pointspread which is why they have a losing record against the spread even though they win most games straight up. Back in November the Lakers defeated Dallas 114-107 at Staples Center but did not cover the 10.5 point basketball betting number.
