Denver at Los Angeles Lakers – Basketball Betting

January 5th, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting odds have the Los Angeles Lakers favored at home against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. NBA Playoffs odds almost always favor the home team in a Game 7 and that is the case with this game as well.

Basketball betting should be excellent with this popular Game 7 matchup in Sunday.  The Lakers always draw a lot of attention in NBA Playoffs odds and the Nuggets are an exciting team that has played well in this series. Online sports betting gamblers can watch this game on ABC television on Sunday.  Whenever you get a matchup with Kobe Bryant versus Carmelo Anthony it makes for great television.

Most of the time with a Game 7 the online betting public will bet the home team.  That probably will be the case here with the Lakers favored in NBA Playoffs odds but a lot of the trends point to Denver.  The Nuggets have been a super road underdog of late in basketball betting so taking the Lakers and laying the points might not be wise.  Denver has simply been very good overall in basketball betting of late, going 21-5 against the online sports betting number.  The only concern for Denver bettors would be that the Nuggets are 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Los Angeles.

The Lakers have not been a very good favorite of late versus the NBA Playoffs odds and that is a concern for online betting gamblers taking Los Angeles.  The public loves betting Los Angeles and many times the Lakers are overvalued, especially when they are playing at home.

Somewhat surprisingly, the under has been the way to when betting Denver games of late.  20 of the last 26 Denver playoff games have gone under the NBA Playoffs odds.   The Nuggets are also an under team on the road as 9 of their last 12 games on the road have gone under the basketball betting total.

The Lakers are also a good under team versus the basketball betting number of late.  Eight of the last nine Conference Finals games for the Lakers have gone under the basketball betting total.  The Lakers as a favorite have gone under the total in 26 of their last 35 games.  Nine of the last eleven meetings between the two teams have gone under.
