Los Angeles Lakers at Denver – NBA Playoffs Betting

November 30th, 2010 NBA Basketball

NBA Playoffs betting on Friday features Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals as the Denver Nuggets host the Los Angeles Lakers.

NBA odds favor the Nuggets in this game that can be seen on ESPN television.

NBA Playoffs betting on this series has been very unpredictable as the Lakers look great one game and terrible the next.  Just when you think you have this series figured out, something different happens. It would seem likely that the Nuggets would cover the spread in this NBA Playoffs betting matchup on Friday but in this series nothing has gone according to plan.

Games 3 and 4 of this series were played in Denver and the teams split. The Lakers won Game 3 by a score of 103-97 and covered the NBA Playoffs betting number while the Nuggets routed the Lakers 120-101 in Game 4, easily covering the 4.5 point NBA odds.

The Lakers have actually split their last ten meetings with the Nuggets in Denver and they are 6-4 against the online sports betting pointspread.  It used to be that the Lakers won every game against Denver but this year has been different.  The Nuggets have proven they can beat the Lakers and they are favored in NBA odds to do so again on Friday.  Ever since the Nuggets got Chauncey Billups from Detroit they have been a different team.  With Billups in the lineup the Nuggets have shown they can beat Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.

Seven of the last ten games between the two teams in Denver have gone under the online betting total. That is really surprising considering both teams have very good offenses and weak defenses.  It just goes to show you that nothing is totally predictable in NBA Playoffs betting.  When Game 4 in Denver went over the total it broke a six game streak of games between the two teams going under the online sports betting total in Denver.

The Lakers have been relying heavily upon Kobe Bryant in this series and it will be up to him again on Friday.  If he gets some help from Pau Gasol then it is possible the Lakers can steal this game in online betting. If not, the Nuggets may be the way to go in this NBA Playoffs betting matchup.
