Los Angeles Lakers vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Lakers Face Betting on NBA Games Challenge at 76ers

February 6th, 2019 NBA Basketball, Sportsbook

Commencing with center Joel Embiid have the betting on NBA Games dynamics changed for Philadelphia.  In relative short order has Embiid transformed the 76ers from an NBA bottom feeder into a top tier Eastern Conference contender.  By contrast the Lakers epitomize the one-man team aspect of many NBA franchises.  Concurrently LeBron James giveth and taketh.  And his recent absence from action due to a bad groin exposed Los Angeles as utterly helpless without him.  In turn, the Lakers are currently on the outside looking in for the Western Conference playoffs.  Nobody on the team can fill James’s void.

Los Angeles Lakers

Presently the Lakers have had better than expected value with three covers in their last four games.  Four of LA’s last five games have gone under the total. Los Angeles ranks 14th in the NBA for scoring offense and 22nd for points allowed.  Owing to that is a record of 27-26 straight up, 23-28-2 against the spread and 19-33-1 under the total.  The Lakers are in 10th place in the Western Conference.

Philadelphia 76ers

Correspondingly Philadelphia has kept in the black with five payouts in their last nine games.  Seven of the Sixers last ten games have gone under the total.  NBA metrics have Philly at fourth for scoring offense but 21st for points allowed.  As a result, the 76ers now stand at 34-19 straight up, 25-28 vs. the line, and 29-24 over the total.  Philadelphia is in a heated race with Toronto and Boston for the Atlantic Division lead.

Important Players on Court

Naturally the marquee man for this game is Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid.  The Sixers center is averaging 27.2 points and 13.5 rebounds per outing.  Most important of all for the Lakers is James’s status as day to day.

Stats to Consider

In this situation Los Angeles may be a strong sportsbook value as the road dog.  The Lakers have covered six of their last eight getting points away from home.  Four of their last six in this role have gone under the total.  By contrast Philadelphia has covered five of their last nine as home chalks.  Four of the 76ers last six in that situation have gone over the total.

Team vs. Team

Late results show Philadelphia has the betting on NBA Games edge over the Lakers.   As an example, the 76ers have paid in three of the last four meetings against LA.  Five of the last seven between these teams went under the total.  However, the Lakers have had their best profitability against Philly at the Wells Fargo Center.  Los Angeles has paid in nine of their last 11 road tilts with the Sixers.  Four of the last five between these teams at Philadelphia went under the total.

Matchup to Watch


While most casual betting money will flow towards the 76ers this may be a good time to fade the public.  As mentioned earlier the Lakers have been in good betting on NBA Games form lately.  Also, they have the proven ability to get the money at Philadelphia.
